Shark spotting drone voted top idea at boardroom lunch
Three ideas from IdeaSpies were presented at the Ashurst October 2017 boardroom lunch addressed by Adam Creighton of The Australian. The idea receiving the most votes was a drone equipped with artificial intelligence that can help identify and warn swimmers and surfers of nearby sharks, developed by Westpac Little Ripper Lifesavers with UTS researchers. This idea now goes to the final at the December boardroom lunch to select the top idea for the year. http://littleripper.com/world-first-for-shark-spotting-algorithm/

New bioreactor captures as much carbon as an acre of trees
A new algae bioreactor can suck as much carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere as roughly an acre of forest — potentially giving dense cities a new weapon in the fight against catastrophic climate change. https://futurism.com/the-byte/bioreactor-captures-carbon-acre-trees

Disability

A new service that provides support for people with a disability based on interests as well as skills
Hireup is an online platform that is changing the way Australians with disability find, hire and manage their own support workers, along with recent changes in legislation. Previously people with disability had to accept support work on someone else?s terms. The new approach encourages investment in technology and the community. The Hireup platform is designed to be secure, easy to use and flexible, benefitting both people who need services and those who provide them. It matches people with a disability and support workers not just on qualification but on shared interests. www.hireup.com.au

A ban on alcohol supported by women
Village women are enforcing a new prohibition law in Bihar, one of India?s poorest, most agrarian states. Since the law was introduced the crime rate has fallen sharply, brick houses are starting to be built instead of the usual mud huts and spending on things like motorbikes and appliances has risen significantly. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/04/15/world/asia/india-bihar-alcohol-ban-women.html?

Folding bicycle helmet
You know that bicycle helmets save lives and prevent brain injuries. Unfortunately, they are inconvenient to carry around with you after rides and are easily stolen if left with your bike. Maybe you're one of the millions of riders who doesn't wear a helmet for this reason, even knowing the risks. The Morpher Helmet may be a practical solution. Due to an imaginative concept and design, the helmet folds flat so it can be stored easily in a backpack or briefcase. See https://www.morpherhelmet.com
