  16. Jacob Villarreal

    I came up with this new idea recently after having been fed up with the litter accumulating in our car. I realized we needed a compact solution to keep the litter compactly stored for disposal, rather than keeping it stuck in the door handle, and other compartments in the center console which are normally used for keeping loose change, sunglasses, etc… So I put this idea together to see if I could get any interest from any potential investors. I also have the drawings for it which help give you a better perspective of the product. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    The present product idea relates generally to a compact disposal accessory implemented for minor to moderate disposal of litter. In specific, it is an accessory disposal unit that is installed compactly in an automobile for use as a convenient re-usable container for storage of passenger’s litter. It installs along-side the center console, or door panel of a vehicle according to model specifications. It is constructed with a variety of materials per manufacturer’s choice, including vinyl polymer, leather, plastic, and spandex. It can be fashionably designed according to model of vehicle. In general, it is designed as a compactly flattened disposal accessory which contains a predetermined quantity of super-imposed supply bags which install in the interior of the disposal accessory for efficient disposal of used bags, without re-installation of supply bags, until the supply runs out. The compact disposal accessory installs along-side the center console by means of complementary sticky gel pads which are sold along with the product. The sticky gel pads are placed on the rear corner edges of the disposal accessory, in preparation for placement on the center console. The disposal accessory is then pressed along-side the center console for compact space-saving long-term use in any automobile.

  23. souane

    Dear madam, dear sir,
    Being an independent inventor, I designed a system for automatic regulation of the air pressure contained in an inner tube and a tubeless tire, during the race of the vehicle.
    This system is inexpensive to manufacture and easy to assemble to most vehicles currently in circulation.
    I am ready to hand over the written and drawn descriptions to any interested person who would like a cooperation or an acquisition for a reasonable sum.
    Please accept, Madam, Sir, my most cordial greetings.
    NB: this information has been sent to many manufacturers. A small number (2 or 3) of the first contacted asked me to wait until they answered. To those, I had provided more details about the invention. Since they did not answer, I guess they are trying to realize my idea. For this reason, a possible transaction will be made immediately with the first interested parties whose offer would not fear overbidding.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I have what I feel is a ground breaking idea for the automotive industry.
    I have gone to a innovation company who simply sent me through the form for them to conduct a Worldwide Patent search.
    This has a large cost to it and simply says that they may be required to undertake further searches as the idea develops.

    I saw this site and am interested to see what advice you can give me please

  45. Milovan Ljubisavljevic

    My name is Milovan Ljubisavljevic, I live and work in Kragujevac-Serbia. I spend my free time innovating in the current field reducing the exhaust emissions of internal combustion engines. I did a bi-fuel system using natural gas (CNG-Methane + gasoline) and I use methane gas to transform gasoline from liquid to gaseous state (petrol vapor). The newly produced gas between these two already known fuels is produced under not big pressure (on line production).In this way, the combustion of methane and gasoline vapors is almost total (between 85% and 90%), while in classic engines this is 35% at best. The said project produces remarkable results in terms of reducing consumption and emission reductions. I have already tried the system on one vehicle Fiat punto 1.2 8V Natural Power from 2005 and confirmed above mentioned.
    I have a drawing that would clarify the idea.
    Please contact me if you are interested in my idea/project.

    Thanks and best regards.
    Excuse me in my poor English

    Hello there, I have an idea to enhance all new automobiles. This brand new safety element could save thousands of lives and save millions on car insurance and car damage repairs.

Please can you let me know an email address so I can discuss this further with companies that may be interested. Kind regards, Catherine

  52. Murat Yavuz

    We invented ‘MECHANICAL ENERGY BOOSTING SYSTEM’ (both torque and power).
    INPUT = 1 unit OUTPUT = more than 1 unit.
    Consisting entirely of mechanical gears and parts (NO MAGNETS ETC).
    We are looking for an investor.
    If you are interested please mail us your questions.
    Thank you.

    As a new invention in energy multiplication, it is not a finished final product, but a power increasing (power & torque) gearbox system; in short, it is a design for a “mechanical energy boosting system”.

    The system consisting of mechanical parts and gears works cyclically and increases energy depending on the rotation (rpm) speed (efficiency rate increases as the rotation speed increases).
    The interrelations of custom-designed gear and mechanical parts, combining with a three-stage structure and based on the axis angle in spite of different degrees of the locations, are based on the operation principle that the transmission ratio is inversely proportional to rotation and speed.

    The factors that increase the efficiency of gear groups are based on the location of gears and mechanical parts with defined degrees, by transferring the speed and torque coming from the linear and graduated axes between them to increase the power.
    The transmitted power and speed are concentrated on the body. The basic principle of the system is to carry the kilogram m/s on the input gear to the body without loss. (Input Kg provides maximum Kg increase with minimum rotation.)

  60. Ashley Rivero

    I came up with an invention that will increase the safety of all vehicles. This invention will be worth millions, and the cost to manufacture it in every car is inexpensive. The enormous amount of lives as well accidents this will save/prevent.
    The idea came to me after I was in a terrifying situation with my, at the time 4year old, son.
    A few other times, this would have been highly beneficial to me and my friends and family. I want to sell my invention to all the vehicle manufacturers, but I am unsure of exactly who to contact. It is time we get anything and everything helpful, going to save as many innocent lives on the road as we can!
    Please email me if interested.

  61. Sunrise

    This is a gift idea to the World and the Automobile/Trucking industry and to anyone who wishes to benefit with grace and respect for the concept…. it is a frequency grill attachment to the front of vehicles with different size holes for air to travel through and emit a frequency that warns a range of wildlife that a vehicle is approaching and not to cross the road…. please know that i am not able to provide any technical information. New automobile designs are too quiet, and humans have issues hearing them approaching also.

    Electric cars and suv’s is not the way to go.
    Think what those used batteries are doing to our
    earth. No good what so ever and explain to people
    when they need to replace all those batteries the
    price. It is more than the car or SUV is worth.
    It is time for a change and it will clear our air
    and we on this planet have many of. Hydrogen is the
    way to go, let’s stop all governments getting rich
    in oil and all their cronies sucking us out of us
    hard working money.
    Let’s change the world with cars and SUV’s and change
    us to HYDROGEN to fuel up!
