|Single acting pneumatics with spring return. (and other ideas)||Provide pneumatic function using less air.||Very practical. Compressors don't have to work as hard.|
|Four way driver #1||Allows one motor to control four single direction outputs.||Pretty impractical since the gears don't always mesh properly.|
|Four way driver #2||Same mechanism, but uses friction drive to eliminate problems with gear meshing.||Much more practical, since proper meshing of gear teeth is not an issue.|
|CVT||A friction drive continuously variable transmission.||Its just a concept that needs improvement.|
|Resistor||Allows you to distinguish between two touch sensors on the same port.||Very useful, only requires some care in the programming.|
|Quick return mechanism||This mechanism produces a quick return stroke: just the thing for a compressor.||Might be useful for compressors and other things.|
|Torsen Differential||A type of automatically locking differential||Kind of big, but could be used for large scale models.|
