Ok, yeah, will start right off by admitting I blew a lot of money putting together a trip to Houston audition only to not make it past the assistant producer to get to the actual judges. You know, the hours standing in line. Planning the return trip for extra days out on the assumption (assumption you _have_ to make, right? Don't want to make it and then have to spend huge extra $$ on new air tickets) that you would be held over.
Bitter, I'M NOT B I T T E R!?! Hehe, actually not. My point is more that me thinks the producers might have let some big fish slip through their nets. You tell me?
Actually, they didn't even want me to take my invention out of its case for them to see it, let alone see what it does. They did say it sounded like a great invention, "BUT NOT RIGHT FOR THE SHOW". ?!? No friggen idea what that means.
And yeah, was disgruntled to see new toilet seats and what-not that _did_ make it to the judges.
Here's a blurb w/YouTube video link, about my technology for those interested in checking it out. My technology is better than my vid production skills, be patient past the few seconds of blank black screen...
Hi All -
Have a multiple-patent-protected technology you folks may be interested
in for a story. It relates to "Technology", "Science", "Entertainment",
and "Health & Fitness" areas.
Posted a brief video on youtube that demonstrates creating a mechanical
control out of empty air! Thinking your audience would be wowed by
this...creating functional mechanical controls out of nothing or "ex
nihilo". Also, hi-tech entrepreneurial efforts in the area. There is a
ton more info available on it...has sooo many
applications...but keeping things short and sweet by way of
Such Virtual Controls in the demonstration and also the more intriguing
Virtual Ghosts are possible. The example is of creating a musical key
from a "virtual keyboard" which hangs in empty space. Check it out.
The video gives an overview and it may help to get the vision of what
the technology promises. There are a few seconds of "black screen"
after a scrolling slide of potential applications...be patient, the
main part of the video follows.
Adaptive equipment for the disabled, collecting work and power metrics
while you exercise (no clipboard, no manuallly entering data in a
computer to graph it), and COMPUTER GAMING are some of the best
applications (but not all). Will revolutionize computer gaming (The
Virtual Controls and Virtual Ghosts stomp the Wii).
