well, I guess they might have gotten one right, the baby seat may get him to the million, but!, now they've made it too elaborate, with it's new size how will it fit into the smaller compact cars, with gas like it is people are buying these cars, you'll have to buy a pick-up truck and put it in the back, the word game?, this is probably the winner, this guy has shead enough tears that he has probably lost 20 pounds, and the phone calls? why didn't this guy use some of that $80,000 and get his mom out of that basement, So now we have a football pole that no one will buy in a retail store, a bike that will cost so much that the less fortunate that the kid ment it for won't be able to afford it, a word game that no kids are going to want to play, (they want video games) unless it's in a class room where the teacher makes them do it, and finally, a car seat that when you buy one you'll have to buy a new car to haul it, the judges had it easy picking these, but when America votes for the winner, they may just not even call because they don't want any of these so called inventions that are going to be on every retail shelf in america, yeh right!!!

by george, your right... no winners , all four inventions? (what inventions) good luck If the car seat wins, the shows spends at least $300,000
more to get a product to market, but still no patent in the near future

Say hallelujah! They finally got one right... the carseat for the baby. One out of four isn't too bad, is it?

That electronic word game was confusing though. Couldn't this be a card game? From what I could see, and, they didn't show too much of the game, I would say that a card game costing perhaps 5 to 10 dollars could easily replace the $50.00 electronic game. You wouldn't have the glitzy electronics but the working of the game would be the same...it could easily be multi-lingual and not just bi-lingual.

I too had high hopes for this show when I first heard about it. But, after seeing so many worthy inventions passed up for the better sob story, I am thoroughly disappointed. Rather than focus on the merits of the "invention," I absolutely HATE when Mary Lou asks the "why should you move to the next round?" question. Because then it just becomes a who tells the best tear jerker story competition.

Emalie (not verified) | 2006-05-04 18:15 | What are they thinking?

After the sacmaster rejection I was concerned about the results and how they were picking winners. As someone who saw first hand a coworker lose her hair to Chemo and complain of wig sweat, I thought "way to go!" . Then they give it to some "educational game" that will be too expensive for most who need it, and can be played with pencil and paper, or chalk on a board like hangman, instead of a product which again is useful to rescue workers and regular people!?! I am in disbelief...

yes the sandbag shovel should have gone on, the football pole isn't going to sell in the mass marketing line that the show was intended to do, and the bike?, if it's compared to the Bilenky one, how many of these are going to be sold?, the other one goes for over $4,000 only the rich will have one, these judges? well they're only judging the inventors that the producers had picked to be on the shows, they may have picked some better inventions if they were at the original auditions, but still the choices they have made on the shows are mostly terrible, and maybe they have a script to follow that the producers want to liven up the series, anyway you look at it a lot of good inventors and inventions never made it past the audition judges in the 7 cities.

Oh, if we could only start over again.
No, this isn't about romance, it is about the politically correct American Inventor fiasco. The judges reject the sandbag filler shovel. This was one of the few merchandisable inventions presented.

Instead, they cheer for the football "breastbone" gizmo. It won't sell because it is cumbersome and blocks the player's vision. Also, when a player receives the pass, he must pull the ball in as close to his body as possible to protect the ball.....the "breastbone" discourages that.

The front-loaded bicycle won't work as any kid who has tried to ride another on the handle bars will verify. Too much weight up front makes it hard to steer and blocks the steerer's view. Is that an open manhole up ahead? I see lawsuits, lots of lawsiuits.

Dump the current judges, get some folks with common horse sense and no political correct agends and do it over!

...that NO 'professional', or full time inventors even made it into the finals. Not one, to my knowledge. Which also re-inforces other points I made earlier about alot of really good inventions were deliberately passed up, in order to meet the pre-determined quota the producers had created. The stink factor just went up a notch yet again.

Dripnot (not verified) | 2006-04-27 12:35 | Here's some positive amid all the negativity

Well, I believe it is universally agreed that the show could have easily been the "Thinking Man/Woman's Reality TV Show" if only they had done a better job on a lot of the issues previously discussed among these threads. But, I digress.

As far as inventors go, Mark Martinez - inventor of the Sackmaster 2000 (now the Sacmaster), has my vote. His invention is the embodiment of good design- Simple, low-tech, low cost, and most importantly- it works. I also think his presentation was quick, to the point and effective...a very good job. While it can be argued that 'Not everyone in America would need one'... think of the world. I bet A LOT of people on the banks of the Danube river in Europe wish they had them weeks ago. With the looming threat of more hurricanes and flooding around the world, Mark's invention solves a problem facing mankind now and in the future. Inventing isn’t just about what *you* can do. It’s about what you can do for others. Take a bow, Mr. Martinez.

Will tonight's show include more parading and showing of the deviants and imbeciles so that the audience can laught at "inventors" who are being serious? The joke is on them, and I think that any "inventor" who is obviously "used" for their entertainment value as opposed to their invention that wasn't quite good enough to make the cut ought to be COMPENSATED monetarily for their "gig". To do less than that is a gross injustice.

Yes, "ABC did go so far as to claim They are looking for the next big thing, something that everyone in America needs." (as stated by "anonymous)

and "the ads that ABC had going to get people to the auditions, said they Were looking for the next big invention" (as stated by another anonymous).....

but they also state: "Envision the Cabbage Patch Kids®, George Foreman Grill®, Post-It® or Rubik's Cube®."

What were you all expecting? A microwave? television? or something along those lines?
With that being said, the show is obviously for entertainment.....

However, I think it would have been nice to get a little knowledge from it also. I am disappointed with the editing. I think the producers should have keep the wacky stories to the first few weeks. Now that they are narrowing down the contentants, I would love to see more of the actual proces of producing and manufacturing the products. We have only seen 3 contentants receive the $50k, but we don't really get a clear idea of what it takes to market their products or what the money is spent on. It would have been better if there were some "learning experience" for those of us who want to learn what it takes to produce and market an invention.

Anybody agree?

Dripnot (not verified) | 2006-04-26 14:55 | RE: in response to "Whiners? maybe" and "ABC ads"

Firstly- I don't post 'anonymous' unlike alot of the other cowards here. I can stand fully behind any statements I make.

Secondly- For them to *even* suggest a parallel between their 'show' and to state: "Envision the Cabbage Patch Kids®, George Foreman Grill®, Post-It® or Rubik's Cube®." is a typical bait and switch. How low can you go?

What did I expect? It's called truth in advertising, something Hollyweird doesn't acknowledge. The contestants were not the only ones who got ripped off, viewers with both sides of their brains working got shafted as well.

American Idol *insults* those of us with decent 3 digit IQ's, *assuming*
that we wouldn't be able to watch real intellect-based programming, instead of the SOB Story Circus Hour. I bet that any intelligent people from abroad (meaning not US) are laughing their butts off at the 'best' that America can offer.

What did I (and others) expect? Way, too much from the looks of it.

Anonymous, but dont take it personal (not verified) | 2006-04-27 09:47 | I stand fully behind any

I stand fully behind any statements I make also (whatever you mean by that). But I don't have a link to a website if that's what you want from me. You are actually still very *anonymous* to me.

I'm not a bitter inventor that claims my idea is better than anybody elses. I am a viewer of the show and I wish they did a bettor job in the editing process, but nevertheless, I am entertained by the show. Again, I would have loved to see more of the production and marketing of the inventions, as I imagine most of America would want to see....but for those of you who are ripping apart inventors that are on the show, we can see right through you. Get over the fact that for one reason or another your idea did not make it to the final 12. There were many of you who had great ideas, but the show cannot be about thousands of people. Sorry for those of you that had great inventions that did not make it on the show (which, by the way, I think "dripnot" is a great invention)
But here's the answer: if you don't like the show, don't watch it. It doesn't take an average IQ to figure that one out.

Anonymous (not verified) | 2006-04-25 12:46 | Talk about drama....

You know, I'm having a hard time deciding whether there was more crying out of the contestants that made it, or more crying on this thread. Maybe if y'all had acted as whiny as y'all are acting here, they might have picked you! The show isn't formatted around really picking the best product. They aren't out to show the best of what came. No reality show is really reality, because America isn't that interested in reality. No reality show is going to focus on the good points. The American consumer doesn't' want to see some intelligent person make it big, they want to see and support some sob story and feel like they are helping along someone who couldn't do it without them. I completely agree that this is a horrible show, but I hate all reality shows. I hate what it says about our society. I'd rather get the money on my own and feel better about myself then sell out to what reality TV is all about.

But ultimately, I don't fault the show. They are going to be rich and successful because the producers and ABC have an understanding of their target audience and are going to format the show and make their decisions with that in mind. I have no doubt that each one of you is going to stayed glued no matter how much you b**ch and moan about how you hate it and feel jilted and think the judges are making horrible decisions. Ultimately, the show's ONLY point is to trap as many suckers in to watching it week by week as they can. It is sad that the way to do this most successfully as has been shown time and time again is to pander to the low qualities of people and society.

If you really want to take a stand, DON'T WATCH THE SHOW and encourage every one you know to NOT WATCH THE SHOW. Crying on these blogs isn't going to accomplish anything. It will only be through consistent bad ratings that networks can understand that they need a different approach that applauds the high ideals and qualities of us as a people.

Dripnot (not verified) | 2006-04-25 22:08 | Whiners? Maybe...

ABC did go so far as to claim "They are looking for the next big thing, something that everyone in America needs."

What was that? To watch this poor excuse of a show...cause they SURE haven't displayed ANYTHING on the show yet that everyone in America needs. Talk about not living up to your own claims. They pulled a bait and switch, plain and simple. I think THAT is what has alot of people up in arms about. They expected ABC to actually follow thru on their own pitch.

As far as watching the 'show'. I couldn't stomach anymore than the first half hour of the first show, and haven't had the displeasure of watching it since. Friends don't let friends watch Jerry Springer level 'inventing' shows.

Dripnot (not verified) | 2006-04-21 22:25 | Greatest American Inventions? Where?

I too, auditioned for the show, and am also very glad I didn't make it onto the show. I had high hopes that this would NOT be like American Idol, but it seem the producers couldn't even think of an original effective format for the show. They had to re-hash American Idol.
Strike One.

The amount of paperwork involved was ungodly; I sensed that something was amiss when they asked questions about 'prior TV or acting experience' Of course they were looking for drama kings and queens, it goes with the lousy format of the show.
Strike Two.

After I auditioned, the judges asked me "What do you need us for?" Hmmm... I thought it was to showcase the American Spirit of Inventing and all that goes with it. I guess I brought serious inventions, presented them well, and that was not what they were looking for. Silly me.
Strike Three.

What disturbs me *MOST* is that I personally saw ALOT of great inventions...not crackpot stuff at all, and NONE of them even made it to the finals??? Instead they put 'filler' (a lot of it) into air time that could have been used to showcase some of those great inventions I saw. Nope. They had to waste time on crackpots and drama freaks instead. I remember an inventing show from about 10 years or so ago called "Why didn't I think of that?" and I must say...it was and still is...a far better show about great inventions than Ameriscam Dementor will ever be.

The silver lining?
I know inventing is not for the meek or poor, it is the hardest road you will ever run yourself down. But myself, like other inventors do it...because that's what we do, and we like it. For the record- I auditioned 3 inventions in 1:48 seconds, and they said no thanks. I am presently in talks with a MAJOR company to license or buy those *same* inventions they said no to. After it is all said and done, I will post them here for anyone that wants to see what American Inventor did not. ; )
Never, ever, let go of your dream. If you do, it wasn't yours to begin with.

The show will give away the million and the runner ups will get their $50,000. I think that as far as marketing any of these inventions the producers would be foolish. They are not exceptional inventions and would have no impact to the society. In other words the cost to market these inventions would be like betting on a turtle to win a race against a rabbit. They might as well flush the money down the toilet.

I find it very interesting that Doug Hall (the guy who fell through the ice TWICE) invented or is credited for inventing the Everready Lead Free Battery. He was the only one who said NO to the Solar Powered Cooler,
which by the way, I LOVED I really want one of those. I think he may have a conflict of interest judging a product which does not use C & D cell batteries and actually touts that they don't use them and is environmentally friendly. Hmmmm!

What a shame that thay chose the low road with this show! I auditioned and I'm happy to say I didn't make it to Hollywood.

I was a passionate advocate for this show and what I thought it would be since I auditioned and I told everyone I know to watch it. Now I'm embarrased to see those people.

IMHO showing all good inventions would have been far more interesting to most viewers. This show could have been inspirational for so many. The sad fact is that it insults the viewers intelligence. I'll be very surprised if the show's around next season.

Hey Simon, we're judging YOU now and it's a NO from me.

Anonymous (not verified) | 2006-04-03 10:21 | Where are the inventions?

I have been watching, and trying to figure out when they were planning to show the real inventions. I guess after 3 shows, I am not likely to see any.

I am really disappointed. I was hoping this show would help with ... something... I thought the judges would have intelligent constructive information, but no...

Where in the heck did they dig up Doug Hall. I thought he was bad, but his latest, wow. He actually said he fell through the ice several times. I don't know about his "friend", but if my friend fell through the ice several times, I would quit hanging around him after the second time because it is too dangerous being around him. He might pull me down the next time.

I am not saying he is a lyer, but how many people do you know that have survived falling through the ice several times? It really makes me wonder what else he is lying about: probably everything.

The other judges don't seem quite so bad, but with Hall there anyone would look good. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid. It is too bad. I really thought they could have had a good show here.

Anonymous (not verified) | 2006-04-03 09:49 | Is it illegal?

I was reading these comments, and several appear to deal with
the 25page "agreement". I have to admit, I didn't make it
thorough all of it, but I need clearification. The first 14 pages deal with identification information and background on the inventor and the invention. A few of the question seem a bit too personal, but otherwise understandable.

Because I didn't read the rest of it,I will assume the other posters are correct. This is what I need clearified. The contract says that the inventor signs away all rights to the invention for a million dollars. Isn't this what happens when you go to a manufacturer to sell your invention?

Say I have a whats-it, and I go to Matel and show them my proto-type and they love it. I then agree to sell them my whats-it. Matel pays me a million dollars, then takes the product and manufactures it and does all the marketing. Yes they get all the profits, but that is after paying me a million dollars, and manufacturing cost and marketing cost and who knows what else.

Isn't this the norm? Or does the inventor normally get royalties. If this is the case, how many would need to sell before the inventor gets that first million.

I really thought that is why inventors try to sell their ideas to companies. The inventor gets some money (hopefully a lot of money) and the risk and cost to produce the whats-it is all on the company, not the inventor.

If the inventor produces it on their own, are they likely to get a million dollars after costs? If they get royalties instead, how long before the first million?

Honestly, I don't know. I have ideas and a few proto-types and I thought going to a company to sell my item was a good thing. I wouldn't sell it for less then my cost with lots of profit...a million dollars would do that...wouldn't it?

See, I think your all just looking at this wrong. The 3rd show was my first time watching it. Now don't get me wrong, I would never sign that contract myself. I saw it as complete comedy, just like American Idol, someone told those people they had a great idea, even if it was the voices in their own head. I think that people realize that any respectable inventor would not be so stupid as to go on a show such as that. Just like any real musician would not go to American Idol. Here are a few thoughts as far as the judges are concerned,

1. Doug Hall - This guys a joke, I live in Ohio and was ashamed that he mentioned he was from here as well. He might have a think tank company and inventions under his belt (as part of a group) but his arrogance underminds engineers. He gives them a bad image. His know-it-all attitude drags the show down to a level below even Simon Cowell.
2. Peter Jones – Of course Simon had to get a rude Englishman for the judging, probably nepotism to say the least. This guy could pass as Simon’s personality double. Have you checked out his personal website? To sum it up in one word – EGOCENTRIC.
3. Ed Evangelista – I don’t even know where to start here. Seems a little too excitable at times, says yes way too often. Other than that he seems to be the most down to earth judge on the show.
4. Mary Lou Quinlan – Token female judge.

I also noticed that Simon’s company is Syco Television, or should we say psycho TV? I guess that explains the people that show up for auditions for all of his productions ( and I use “productionsâ€

PIECE OF CRAB SHOW. JUDGES ARE INCONSISTENT AND LOUSY AT BEST.
THIS IS NOT AMERICAN IDOL AND NOT EVEN IN THE SAME LEAGUE. THIS SHOW WILL NOT LAST.
