Imagine. Invent. Innovate!

Posted By: Akhil Almeida|Dated: June 17, 2014

What stops India from being the nerve centre of world-class innovation?

Ask a visitor from another country what India is famous for and it’s likely that the answer will include the Taj Mahal, Yoga, and the Kamasutra. For a nation that strives to be recognized for world-class innovation, it’s important to realize the contributions that Indians have made to a variety of fields, and still continue to do so today. Here’s a list of 10 game-changing innovations that originated in India:

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to step outside the box and let your imagination soar. After all, the next big thing could come from YOU.

      NEW DELHI.
      Sir,
      Sub:-SMART CITIES DEVELOPMENT – CONCEPT FOR ‘CAR-LESS’ COLONIES / CITIES.
      Please find enclosed abstract for ‘CAR – LESS COLONIES / CITIES ‘, in the wake of our efforts to switch for Smart Cities.
      With this Project implementation we can achieve a great lead, as no other ‘mode of transport’ in the world, can move men / materials with this speed in the congested localities.
      A great saying: — Three (3) stupid stages in LIFE.
      Teenage        - have TIME & ENERGY     but no MONEY.
      Working Age – have MONEY & ENERGY but no TIME
      Old Age      - have TIME & MONEY       but no ENERGY.
      And most of the population in this world is in working Age.
      If we can show the way to save the Public Time at least their travel / Journey time, this Project will be a boon to mankind.
      Chinese Company is ready with quotation to supply required machinery.
      Please permit me to submit you presentation with 3-D Animation.
      Thanking you Sir,
      (P. RAMA LINGA SWAMY)
      Why Traffic Jam Occurs?
      Roads are designed to handle certain level of traffic – Vehicular / Human.
      In due course, there will be increase in users, vehicles, and timing
      (People want to use the roads at the same time in their hurry, i.e., Office / School Time 09.00 a.m.)
      In this project we use the Buildings / Apartments “Building Top” as our landing / boarding place.
      Hence, we can reduce the more than 50% of ‘congest’ on the roads.
      Every Building whether it is 2 floors, 5 floors or 10 floors will have a ‘Building Top’ which is lying idle.
      At present Tower Cranes are used for material handling at large construction sites only. With little modifications in the design and Integration with latest available technologies in Lifts, Roller Coasters, Rope ways, etc, we can use them in Public Transportation.
      A Football Field is 300ft x 160ft = 48,000 sq ft = 1.08 acres. 6 Football Fields = 6.5 acres. TOWER CRANE – The K-10000-L covers 7.5 acres area with over 100 tons lifting capacities.
      Tower Crane JIB length 100 meters. When it is used in Diameter (on two sides) it will be 200 meters. In the aerial distance of 1 K.m. of a colony we have to use five (1000 / 200 = 5 nos) Tower Cranes in line to transfer Public from one place to other, to reach every corner of the Colony. Tirupati City covers total 5 k.m. aerial distance.
      There are some lanes in a colony where two 2-wheelers cannot cross at a time.
      There are some streets in a colony where two 3-wheelers cannot cross at a time.
      There some roads in a colony where two 4-wheelers cannot cross at a time.
      There are ATMs in the colony, in the streets where a lot of money transactions are taking place. The ATM entrance may be 3-ft width. Like that, we can collect people through small entrance in the congested / narrow streets, lift them to Building Top / Pick up Centre and shift them through modified Tower Cranes.

    Sir I have an idea in electical system .I want to work on” flow of electrons in air medium” .so there is no wires requires in home appliances like tv,fridge,ACs and mobiles also we can share th electrons between two mobiles its means we share the battery as requirement s.

    Sir I have an idea.Must look into it.I dont now how to make the device because im just a student.And dont have enough knowledge of electronic or computer apllication. iam just sharing my idea.

    * It have been seen mostly in india that people have more typing speed on handset/cell phone as compared to desktop, laptop etc.
    * If a programmer or software engineer build such an application on a handset or a device similar to a handset that are connected to a desktop, laptop etc that will help the typing works done more faster and the accuracy of typing will be more.
    * It will be helpfull for the Data Entry Company and many other company to do the work done more faster and with less typing mistake.

    * It have been seen in india that the top quality agricultural production is exported to other nation.

    * If a company comes forward at take this issue and help to solve it.

    * just the company will have to tie-up with the farmers of india and pay them more then they earned before and sell that top quality products with reasonable price with the help of logistical support in our own indian markets.

    * The quality of perishable product and every agricultural product will be increased in india, farmers will enjoy more profit as there will no in between commission of dealer,for eg – farmers market where the farmer can solely and independently sell his product directly to the consumers, * * Employment will be generated.
    * The main thing the poor farmers can get better result of there hardworks.

    hello sir, as SUN in our life is the largest and free of cost natural energy resource, so i want to innovate such a kind of thing which can converges automatically the sunlight at smaller point so we could use its heat energy and convert it into other forms of energy to meet our different needs.
    ( like a tower on which all the sunlight is focussed by the lenses or mirrors, so this light energy is absorbed and transformed into other forms of energy.)

    Artificial cyclones can be created and so the electric energy created out of the spin.so if you know the cause of cyclones then you can minimize the devastation caused by it.I have an idea and can be worked upon.
