    Patent XYZ-T9000,

    "The structure borne sound machine"

    A combustion engine is run on an engine test for prolonged time. A sensor measures the vibration and noise it makes. Then, when different parts of the engine break, it's recorded by the noise analyzer.

    Optimal Outcome: To detect upcoming engine damage, via change in the range of the vibrating noise and as a result to develop an intelligent on board computer.

    I invented something today... but then I decided it would be mostly unmarketable and realistically useless, so I forgot about it.

    But if I'd spent my time on it, boy, you'd be impressed...

    A means of explaining automotive issues visually to customers using a remote computer access program like that used in conference calls, along with pictures of the engine itself, then simply using a pen or mouse to draw and write on the engine picture explaining what's going on to the customer who sees the picture on the other end.

    the question tho that remains would be: do most customers want so much information at all. I always meet rejection, when I dont explain things in one easy graspable sentence.

    I tend to explain advantages of cars like this:

    ^^ While that's often the case, I got this idea as I listened to a mechanic try to explain what was going on to a customer. Recognizing his frustration as he tried to explain his visual comprehension of the issues in the English language that was not totally fit for what he was trying to describe, I figured some sort of visual aid would help both the mechanic and the customer interact with one another.

    The photographs help remove the necessity for a simple graspable sentence, as multiple levels of cognition and symbolism are engaged simultaneously.

    Absolutely. There was a nice advertisement for a car where the seller explained all the technical components with "noises" he made with his mouth simulating the sound during operation of the component. I sadly dont remember what car it was for, but I am gonna post it when I find it

    But I did refine Wade's slow alarm clock idea back there to include your addition. Use a higher frequency for the alarm so that only your much younger trophy wife can hear it, then she can wake up first and oblige

    Ooh, here's another one: a microphone that's attatched to a lie detector, for politicians. When it senses that you're lying, it turns off
