A test of inventors and futurists.
A new patent so simple that most everyone will get it, poses the question of a more difficult riddle within. Could a successful reader identify themselves as the next Einstein?
Feb. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- On Tuesday 7th February, Nick Hanigan inventor of the patented Diaxi Hinge posted his project on kickstarter.com, the largest group funding platform for creative projects in the world.
The Diaxi Hinge was granted US Patent approval in June 21st 2011 (US 7963 002 B2). The Kickstarter launch is the first step in commercialisation taken with the invention. See:
The launch is framed as a test of an inventor’s skills; by video Nick Hanigan poses questions and puzzles for fellow Inventors & Futurists. Nick says, ‘The patent design is so simple, just about everyone will say ‘why hasn’t that been done before?’ Prompting the inventor in us all to answer.
Inventors & Futurists are then encouraged to map future demand (PCs, doors, boardgames etc.) Finally, there is a more difficult puzzle. One that the inventor put on paper 5 years after the original patent was filing date, which was 30 June 2006.
Nick says, ‘I new there was something more profound to describe and it changed the game when I found it.’ This last claim is the answer to the inventors test.
