Have you heard that they've started to make USB ports for bicycles, which allows mobile devices to be charged while riding?

4. Rain-Proof Bubble We're imagining the physical design to look like the "Cone of Silence" in the original Get Smart series.

3. Pothole Laser Leveler Houston would be a huge test market.

2. Bike Nazi Detector Inspired by the Texas Medical Center.
