This was my first idea. "No Slide Spike Pants": A pair of snowpants that have spikes that come out when you pull a string! This would be for when you are skiing, snowboarding, sledding, or any other winter sport, and you wipe out. When you pull the string and the spikes come out, your pants stop you from sliding down the hill! It was a combination of snow pants, and a solution to scraping ice.
My second idea, "Freeze Trax", a sled with a light and hose on the front, would make sledding so much more fun (and dangerous!) the hose would spray water or a gel agent onto the snow in front of you, making the sled go extra fast. This idea came from combining winter sports with ice, and thinking about how every kid wants to go as fast as they can on a sled.
Color Tracks! My third idea, would, when you hit your breaks and create friction on the ice with your tires, create colorful lines and patterns on the ice where you slid! Not the most practical idea, but it could be cool, right? Everyone loves color, and hates sliding in their car.. Why not try to make sliding a little more enjoyable?
Liquid Build-A-Maze would be cool for little kids, maybe? Say you have a big snow bank, and want to do something with it but carving tunnels isnt a practical idea at the moment, you could use Build A Maze in the bottle and start at the top of the snow bank, pour it on, and see what designs and maze tunnels are carved out that you can then race things (like marbles) down!
Co-Z-Mits: You'll never have to worry about your hands and toes getting cold from sticking out from under the covers. When you come in from a cold snowball fight, you can crawl into bed, slip your hands and feet into the built in mittens and socks, and sleep warmly! A combination of cold weather, and wanting to be cozy.
My sixth idea, Spike Sled, has spikes on the bottom of a typical looking sled that would carve a track in the ice and snow as you ride down a hill, so when someone else comes down on another spike sled, or you want to ride down again, you can take the same path, and create cool designs to ride down the hill on!
This one is for the architects at heart: Snow Fort Skeleton. It is snap pieces that you can put together to create the structure you always wanted your snow fort to be when you were a kid, and then cover it with snow. you could make castles, igloos, or just crazy forts with this!
Confetti Lights would be the perfect addition to any holiday party. Just string them up, and when they sense someone walking by (by way of a motion detector), they shoot confetti and streamers out of the light bulbs!
For my last idea, I came up with a pair of snow shoes that have heat radiating from the bottom, and called them "Melt-A-Path Snow Shoes". This would allow a more lazy snow shoer to still do the sport- without having to trek through the heavy snow! The shoes would actually melt the shoer a path through the snow, getting them to their destination and creating a path leisurely and timely.
The three sub categories I chose were: Snow Pants and Mittens, Sledding, and Ice.
