Hey, this looks like a fun one...

The sign-up looks pretty easy. (Don't bother with a video because they just run a commercial in place of it.) The money isn't that great, but the exposure might eventually be worth more. All you need is a photo and a good description.

They have a decent comment section for each entry, too.

Actually, if you upload a video, it will run after the short commercial. One of the judging criteria is creativity of presentation, so a video might be better.

Looks like we have some time to get our inventions together and shoot a video - June 8, 2009.

And it looks like they are really wanting a video. You could take pics and create your own video using Microsoft Movie Maker (usually on your computer) or free software like Microsoft Picture Story. You don't really need at video camera.
