I Have A Life Saving Invention In My Head

THE INVENTION

Most everybody, at one time or another, has an idea for an Invention. Every time I hear a news story of a lost child or adult, I say to myself, "Somebody needs to invent this." I'd pursue it myself, but in order to present it to an investor, I would need a lot of money and technological support. I have neither. Learned that on Shark Tank. So, to anybody out there who reads this: If you think you can manufacture this device...I give my idea to you.

A boy scout got lost from his troop and wasn't found for 5 days. He almost starved to death. A hiker in a National Park did the same thing. An avalanche covered a skiier in Colorado. All the State Parks and Recreation facilities should have better rescue communication.

My idea: A Chip Bracelet. Dogs and cats have chips. In Africa, they keep track of animals with a chip. Sea creatures can be tracked with a chip. WHY NOT HUMANS? Bracelets could be issued by all the State and Federal Park and Recreation facilities for groups and individuals. Surely, it can be done with the ingenious technology we have today. I wrote the governor of our state, and received high praise for such an idea. And was encouraged to get a patent. Actually, if money wasn't a problem, that little bracelet would already be known. It would be red. It would be called: The SML bracelet. "Save My Life"

      This really is a great idea; it leaves me wondering why nobody has thought of it already. It's one of those things that is so obviously needed but has escaped us all...go for it...somehow...some way...make it happen before someone else does.

      Ann, The name of the bracelet, Save My Life, is perfect. It sounds like a great idea. Best wishes in making SML bracelets a reality.

      Thank you for the vouch jeyaramd. I have tried to talk to a few people about this. And while all think it's wonderful, that's as far as it gets. Maybe I will try again. Thank you for the visit.

      An innovative idea indeed. Its troubling to hear about so many children that go missing. This would be a welcome addition to any summer camp or group outing. I really do hope that you get the funding. It would be priceless. I would pay for something like that. Children are so precious. God forbid, I hope that parents don't lose children. But, in the consequence that they do; this would be a great asset. Its true that we have many needless gadgets that the world can do without. We should think outside the box and use technology more wisely. You have my vouch. Great idea. Voted up.

      BioFlukes...This device would be for National Parks only, not individuals. Snow parks in colorodo, or parks that have hiking. It would not be for individual use.

      The problem is that people do not like to be tracked. They have problems when their cellphones are tracked, check Carrier IQ. And besides, this will cost a lot.

      I hope that you find someone to help you with this idea - if I had the kind of money you needed, I would definitely invest! Maybe you could contact the people with the "Help I've Fallen and I can't get up" bracelet or necklace - they have a similar technology...

      I think the best way to do it would be to approach microsoft or somebody like that, who could build the product for showing. But it would be hard to convince anybody who hasn't seen a model of it, to invest 10 thousand to get a patent. However, if an investor showed interest, I would pursue it.

      That's a really good idea! You could look into getting funding and grants for a patent, I'm sure there are organizations that would be willing to support your cause!
