New Invention Ideas

I love solving problems and the more innovative the solution the better. Whether it is something to help a difficult medical condition, a way to help with the issues associated with aging, or a way to extend or enhance the use of electronics (along with many other things), I am on the trail.

So what will science, technology, and creativity be bringing out next? I'll be on the lookout for the new, the innovative, and the cutting-edge. If you are looking for smart products that solve everyday problems, stay tuned to this blog and I'll keep you updated.

It is a deep fried snack made of batter-dipped maple leaves and is more popular than our ubiquitous pumpkins. Perhaps we need to expand our autumn diet..
