American Inventor Final 12 Update: Mark Martinez - Inventor of the SackMaster
We just received an update about Mark Martinez, the inventor of the SackMaster, by none other than bottleslingguy (anyone who visits our site frequently knows who I am talking about). Mark was one of the Final 12 contestants in the American Inventor TV show. The SackMaster is a shovel like device that enables one person (vs the regular two) to fill sandbags.
This time Mark is trying to help out our troops in Iraq. Our troops are developing an ailment that is being called "Sandbag Palsy" from filling so many sandbags. "The soldiers use sandbags to protect their shelters from shrapnel, to buffer the impact of gunfire on the undersides of their Humvees, and in the trenches to buffer the impact of gunfire." The article tells us that US Government officials aren't open to listening about the faster, easier way to fill sandbags. Mark is asking for everyone's help to get the government officials to listen. If you can help, contact Mark at his website: www.theSackMaster.com.
