I love inventions. I wish I could invent something. I wouldn’t want the fame or money. I would be happy basking in the glow of knowing I helped other people. I once knew a man who worked for a fast food company. His entire job was inventing packaging for hamburgers and fries. Sounds like a cool job to me.

 

The whole process of inventing baffles me. I wouldn’t know where to begin. My friend recently introduced his golf invention on the market. I never asked him how he came up with the idea. I don’t know if he even plays golf. All I know he is out there promoting his invention the Nanoswing.

 

I find it even more amazing when children come up with inventions. I couldn’t believe it when I learned a child invented Braille, the modern day ear muff, and the trampoline. I find it even more amazing that a 14 year old invented television.

 

Everything we use today is someone’s invention. When I went out to the car one chilly morning, I sat there in the cold watching the snow defrost from my back window. I wondered who came up the idea to put a defroster on the back window.

 

I know it might not seem like that big of a idea, but to me it was amazing. Think about all the little things that you come in contact with everyday that didn’t exist a short while ago. I can barely remember life without a remote control. My children will never know what it is like to have to go change the channel with the knob.

 

The microwave was invented in the 1940s. Microwave popcorn wasn’t widely common until the 1980s. I find this amazing. I always remember microwave popcorn being around. In school I remember them teaching us about great inventions - cotton gin, penicillin, the steam engine, and the automobile. A lot of great inventions including penicillin, were created by mistake. Can you imagine not having Post-it Notes, the pacemaker, or potato chips? I can’t.

 

I want to give a big thank you to inventors, big and small. The next time you pick up a pencil and use the eraser, think about how someone had to say, “Hey why don’t we put the eraser at the end of the pencil?”

 

Also, if you have a great invention lurking inside of you, please put it out there. You never know, your invention could help people everyday, even if they don’t realize it.

If David Handy is your friend, I feel sorry for you. He is a very BIG liar and likes to scam people. Beware of him.

as everyone can see, the nanoswing site is gone because the device was pretty much garbage. david and all his failed business ideas. it's obvious his wife runs the show in the family. david is just broke. check his facebook. he's mostly ignored or talked about behind his back when he posts his lies. anytime he has to take a picture with a hangover 3 movie poster and brag how he got free tickets from one of his "clients", goes to show he's not much in the business world. but let him tell it, he has multiple offices and people working under him. not one person has any of his "businesses" listed on their resume or linkedin profile. david is a joke.

Great article!

I am a successful inventor. I've been building businesses around ideas for 23 years. The most difficult task was figuring out how to move forward and not be taken advantage of.

I am so passionate about helping inventors that I have just released a self-paced online class consisting of 25 short videos and steps. All for only $29!
