Swimming pools have been around for a long time. There many different types of swimming pool designs and swimming pool supplies. However, one kind of pool is getting rather popular, which is the lap pool. Lap pool utilizes much lesser space as is is designed to be ideal for health and fitness exercises rather than for pure recreation and leisure. Because of the compact size, lap pools can be custom designed to fit in with the look and style of your yard.

Swimming pools have always consumed a lot of water and since water has become a very important resource in some parts of the world, a new design to conserve water will be a point of attraction. How about combining Rainwater Harvesting system to capture rainwater for swimming pool usage? The Rainwater Harvesting system can incorporate filtering system to clean the water before entering the pool.

Sky Farms

With the concern of food scarcity and depleting land resources for farming, innovative ideas will be needed to reform the way we are growing our crops. As for residential houses, land size has become smaller and houses are being built with more levels to have bigger built-ups. Nowadays, it is common to hear the term zero-lot bungalow. Basically, they are bungalows with very small plot of land with limited land space. With smaller land space, garden space has also shrunk. For those who loves to plant trees and even vegetables for self-consumption, this has become quite impossible.

The only solution is to make use of the house usable space e.g. flat roof. More and more architects and home owners are going for this choice. Owners can even make use of patio furniture on the roof to turn into a private haven. In fact, some high-rise buildings have also started introducing this concept. Why not start a business to offer such services?

Rent a Friend

Talk about new age business ideas. I have heard of rental services for many things but this got to be the weirdest one I have heard. I came across the idea of friendship rental services on a newspaper recently. Apparently the target market is for people who are doing a lot of traveling and find it a bit to lonesome. Before I mind stray off to escort services, it is not like that. Just imagine if you traveled somewhere and you want a friendly companion to attend a social event or party with you, someone to introduce you to new people, or someone to go to movie or a restaurant with, can help. You can even hire a friend to  show you around an unfamiliar town orteach you a new skill or hobby. Before you hire anybody, you can view all of the profiles and photos on their website.

Apparently, it is a big hit in the US and Canada. I think this idea might just work.
