  • I actually did legally patent an idea I had years ago, thinking if a company decided to use it, I could get rich off of the royalties! It was for what I called "Cool Core." It was a freezable and reusable non-toxic gel "tube" that was permanently affixed to the lid of a water bottle (or similar container) and would keep water or other cool liquids cool. I included information in my patent to allow for warming version of the same technology--to be used to keep hot liquids warm--like coffee, tea, soups, hot chocolate, etc.

    Now, I have seen a few kids carrying around these "cool core" type water bottles, but my patent attorney says many companies find "backhanded" ways around ideas such as mine, and as long as they are able to "tweak" the idea enough so it doesn't represent the patented idea, then it's perfectly legal!! UGH!!

    Someday, I hope it pans out, until then.....back to the drawing board!! :o)

  • I hope the next big thing is a cordless vac that doesn't loose it's power. Like it runs on static electricity which it gains from the friction of rubbing against carpet. So it virtually never runs out of power! That would be awesome.

  • Hell, in the winter there's a ton of static electricity in the AIR! At least around me, I seem to get shocked by EVERYTHING, even things I didn't think could shock you. I get shocked bad, I see blue electricity shocks, and hear it, too. It's bad.

    Lori, that sucks ass. I'd like to see a someone be able to eliminate loopholes! Wouldn't that be awesome?
