Beat that summer heat

The first photo shows our front wooden doors, which facing west. At summer afternoon, even walk behind them you can feel that sizzling heat. You can see that I did everything I can to stop the heat: hand small blankets on doors. Put fake planets in front of them. And you can see two side glass windows aren’t helping either. I had put foam board in window screen and curtain behind them, but nothing really works. Every time I walk by those doors, I know whether sun is shine on those doors and where.

That’s until recently. Right before this summer, I learned radiation heat wave can penetrate roof plywood and send heat into house. Those boards can stop visible light but not radiation heat wave. But a thin metal foil can. That’s right. Even the thin kitchen foil can. So I apply thin foil behind any possible place I can. See photo two. That’s funny, The thick wooden board can't stop the heat; but thin foil can. I stopped heat completely. I beat that summer heat.

My commute gears

Now I drive my car 4 miles to a park near a bike route and paddle 2 miles to our nearest lightrail station. And take lightrail to work. The whole deal take 1 hour 30 minutes, up from 40 minutes via driving my SUV all the way to work. But I can rest on train and bike for health. Last time I fill up my tank was 3 weeks ago, and I still 1/3 left.

Green way to travel with baby

Baby need its own bed, it's not safe to sleep with baby in same adult bed. I submit this one to Everyday Edison online casting call. This suitcase can be convert into an infant bed/playard in less than a minute. This is what I meant better than most of EE's season 1 and 2 inventions since it resolve a bigger problem.
Sorry I won't reveal how it works at this open blog.

Everyday Edisons season2 invetions

The show will be aired Jun 19 2008. And inventors and their inventions can be view at PBS site. I took a look at their inventions. Maybe because there isn't any visual on the inventions, I feel those inventions aren't so beneficial, nor valuable. I submitted two inventions for season 3, and I think both of them would take over the champion position if among season 2 inventions. I don't dare to post anything at Inventorspot or Edison Nation forum, so only at here I can reveal what I really feel. Thank God for giving me all those brilliant ideas. If wasn't Him, I wouldn't think of any of them.

Summer is around the corner

Do you know your AC can consume 26% of your fuel? You probably didn't know. Click here to find out why.
Add a sunshade can cool down your vehicle a lot and then save some fuel. XSHADE cools your car while parked, and it works like a dashboard cover to further cool down your car while driving.

Welcome to MakeWorldBetter Blog

Hi, welcome to this blog. This blog is dedicate to inventors who help this world become a better place everyday. You can post whatever idea you think would make this world a better place. Currently high gas price is certainly a top topic among us, I personally like all green ideas. I myself have few. How about build up a series of windmill along highway to recycle wind energy generated by passing traffic? Tell me what you think.
