American Inventor Judge DOUG HALL BLOGGED LIVE! - Anecia Car Seat Survival Capsule – Q&A


My choice for the final four is The Anecia Survival Capsule. It’s the invention of Janusz Liberkowski

This invention is a true “new to the world” concept. As such it has generated a lot of technical debate and discussion. I do not presume to know all of the answers. However the following are my personal perceptions and opinions. They are not the opinions of Janusz, Freemantle, the producers, ABC or anyone else.

1. How does the Anecia Survivor Capsule work?

When a car crashes there are two collisions. The first is when the car hits the other car or obstacle. The second is when the baby hits the seat belt or when the baby’s head get’s shaken and snapped in the direction of the impact, at the same speed that the car was going before the crash. read more »

Spherical Safety Seat, Un-Brella, Double Traction Bike: Are They Copycat Products?


Since I wrote my last article "Are the American Inventor Final 12 Products Already on the Market?"

So I decided to write a follow up on the following three products:

1. Sheryl McDonald – Un-Brella (InBrella);

2. Francisco Patino - Double Traction Bike (D-Tract 2x2); and

3. Janusz Lieberkowski - Spherical Safety Seat.

None of these three products had a patent.
