The stick may be hollow from inside with provisions to keep medicines in separate tiny drawers for different ailments. Pen that beeps at the wrong spelling Chitra Class VII, Hazaribag, Jharkhand & Himala Joshi, Std. XII, Haldwani Uttarakhand Both the girls have conceived an idea to have a pen with an inbuilt memory, where spellings are saved. The pen would be able to identify the hand movement and understand the spelling being written. It would then give a beep if a wrong spelling is being written. Pen with magnifying glass Joseph Sabu, Hyung Jun, Digjay Rawat Class VI, New Delhi Identifying the need of old aged people with very low near vision and who have to use thick spectacles or magnifying glasses to write, the children have come up with an interesting idea. They have thought about a pen that has a small magnifying glass attached to it that would help them to write. Heart Attack Detection System R Vignesh Class IX, Chennai, TN Many people suffering cardiac arrest have been reported to die before adequate medical support has been provided to them. Vignesh has been working to develop a vest with integrated medical detectors like mini ecg, respirometer, bp sensor.
