I am a part time inventor and Objectivist in NJ, USA. I received a patent for a continuously variable transmission, but have since let it lapse as I couldn't find anyone who was interested in it. Even though I still think it was one of my best ideas. I have now applied for a patent on a new kind of Space Suit and am now attempting to market it.

My degree is in Physics, but I'm much more of a mechanical engineer at heart. In the past have run a CAD/CAM machine shop, tech support for a Fortune 500 company and now I work as an IT Director for a small company.

I'm a serious inventor and if you are reading this because I ripped on your idea, I'm sorry. I really like stuff to work in the real world and many times miss the amazing sense of whimsy that so many of the contributors here have. My wife says I lack whimsy.

My personal favorites of my ideas are: Rockeloonannon \ Tiny personal flashlight \ generator \ Eco-max mowing service \ Audio Manual gear shift trainer \ Bussard Centrifuge (OK, it won't work for people, but I still think it would work for automated probes.)

My personal favorite of others ideas has to be N-Prize. If the space suit sells, I will be pushing hard to help out with making the N-Prize a reality, but for now I just work too much.

All I believe are bakable ideas.
