    invented anything?  i invented a paper airplane design although i don't have a patent.  i plan to shoot a video of my folding technique.   it's really cool.  it flies well too.  it looks a little like a stealth bomber.  when i first invented it i showed the complicated folding design to my cousin and challenged him to do better and he just crumpled a piece of paper up, threw it at me and yelled "Sputnik!"

    tell me if you have any inventions!

      I co-invented a glove that connects to a PC and helps people with lock-in syndrome communicate with finger movements. smile

            As an underwater engineer in a past life - there are already paper notebooks for use underwater that work really well, Surveyors also use them.

    My grandfather, father and 2 of his brothers have patented and sold useful inventions. I am always inventing!
    I invented a wheeled assistant to lift my mom from her seat and support her while she walked around. It was purely mechanical and operated by my mum's weight using two over-centre handle for leverage. I even think of new inventions through out the day quite often.

    from my friend David Walston about inventions:

    When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity.
    To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 C. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------> The Russians used a pencil <------------------------------------------------------

    I once invented a religion on the spot when some witnesses appeared on my doorstep - and one of them noted it down in a little book.
