Here's the deal. Over the years I've come up with some pretty good ideas for inventions. And for those of you who don't know, when you go to one of the invention companies, they want around $13,000.00 to get an invention up and running. So up until now, most of my inventions have remained in my mind, as a secret. To be most effective in this world I've decided to share my ideas in hopes that one day the world can benefit from my creative side. Call me Crazy, lol! but those who know me, wouldn't be surprised at all!
PROJECTS / INVENTIONS
-Some time in the early 90's (before 1994) I was hooked on the game Street Fighter 2. And I was a huge Comic Book Character fan with a very large collection of Comic Books and Cards. I'll never forget this. I went up to my dad one day and said "hey dad, if we created a video game with Street Fighter character fighting Comic Book characters, everyone would buy it". He replied "boy ain't nobody gonna by that shit!" lmfao. I love my pops. And I'm sure there's been millions of gamers who have also thought the same thing. Kudos to their creativity, and congrats to the people who capitalized on it. Now it's a multi-million dollar franchise.
-In 1995 we moved into a new home. It was lot bigger than the apartment we had moved from. One day coming back form a weekend vacation to Wildwood, the house was blazing hot. I went to the thermostat box and said to my dad "what do you think about a box that you can call and push a few buttons to control the temperature from any phone anywhere" (keep in mind this was way before cell phones, emails, and text messages). He replied "boy ain't nobody gonna spend money on that, when they could just set it before they leave the house!" I said "but what about last minute schedule changes and stuff". I got no answer but the idea always stayed with me. I was 14 at that time. As you can see with technology the way it is, someone else has tapped into their creative forces and made my idea into a reality. And for that, I thank them. Them creating those devices reassures me that my creations and ideas are in fact not only good, but great ideas worth millions. That alone is payment enough for me. Every time I see a commercial for this I laugh a little and consider it a success.
-1998 Creds: My "Cred" system
-1999. Me and my cousin Taz use to eat at the Philly Diner almost every night. And they use to have the best chicken fingers. I have to admit, Taz did introduce me to dipping them in buffalo sauce, I wasn't a big chicken finger person. So I placed an ordered to have mine covered with buffalo sauce. The waitress looked at me like I was crazy. Everywhere we ate I would order my chicken fingers smothered in buffalo sauce. And everywhere I went they looked at me like I was crazy. Now they're on every menu I see. Buffalo Chicken Fingers. It's silly, I never thought to give it a name. I would just ask if they could smother my chicken fingers in buffalo sauce lol.
-Somewhere around 1999 or 2000 i was playing a game called Shenmue for my Sega Dreamcast. I was hooked on that game. Anyway, it was cold outside (in New Jersey) and I had been playing for hours with a blanked on and it was a hassle to deal with. Then it hit me. "Throw some sleeves and maybe a pocket or 2 in this blanket and I'm good"! Sound familiar? And as i said before, I'm sure there's been millions of gamers who have also thought the same thing. Kudos to their creativity, and congrats to the people who capitalized on it.
Sometime in 2004 while eating my favorite food, chicken parm, I came up with an idea to wrap a thin piece of chicken around a tube shaped piece of mozzarella cheese. Or inject a tube shaped piece of chicken with mozzarella cheese, fry it, and dip it in some marinara sauce. Thus was born "Parm Poppers". I tore my kitchen apart making prototypes. Adding different ingredients, spices, etc until it was restaurant worthy. Invention Submission Corporation wanted $14,000.00 and "up to 6 months" to make a move. They say that's their "Standard Price" SMH!
2006. You can create a file of ringtones that rotates every time your phone rings. This will have an option to exclude the ringtones that are assigned to specific contacts. I've got so many classic ringtones on my phone, and I'm tired of hearing the same one for every call. And who wants to constantly change their ringtones? Surprise me!
-"Neo's Spirit Beads"
In September of 2010 I saw a rise in the sales of rosaries. But they weren't colorful and they were expensive. I had a thought, to make affordable rosaries that served their normal purpose plus could be stylish. That was the start of Neo's Spirit Beads, and neosspiritbeads.com. Theme or team colored rosaries that don't cost an arm and a leg. Neosspiritbeads.com is still up and running and open for business. And since my first order of beads and strings we have been sending rosaries to US Soldiers.
-"Mirror Crown Molding"
January 2011. Imagine if the crown, chair (middle), and floor molding of a black and white living room were all mirrors. Actually picture it. Being able to see your reflect in the top mirror. A middle row that would seem to catch your eye when you move. And while your seated on a sofa, you can see behind you :) And floor molding that kinda makes the walls seem like there hanging form the ceiling. I'd pay a pretty penny for that.
-"Ringtone Timer App" (mobile app)
A cell phone app that will allow the user to set what times of day that he/she wants their cell phone to go from ring to silent/vibrate. ie. phone is set to automatically go to silent/vibrate from 10pm till 9am.
In June of 2011 I came up with an idea to make little plugs that plug into a wall, and you can plug things into them. The power supply to these plugs can be controlled by a remote, or your mobile device. This way anything you can plug into a wall (like lamps, radio's, etc.) can have a on/off remote. They're now in every Walmart and Target in the country.
Cyber storage with a few twist, tweaks, and cash give aways! Replaced by Google Photo. Except you can't lock certain folders or albums on Google photo. On mine you could!
-CYB App (mobile app): 2011
Count Your Blessings App. A mobile app that will sound an alarm asking the user what good thing has happened to them so far today (ie. around noon / lunch break). If the user is having a particularly bad day and decides not to answer, the alarm will sound again hours later (ie. after work) asking them again. The messages can be customized (so there not to aggressive), and the number of daily alarms can be changed as well. When the user does decide to respond to the alarm and type in a reply, it is recorded and can be viewed in chronological order. So you can always look at your phone, no matter what mood your in, and see several reasons to smile. The world needs more of the feeling a smile brings!
It's basically a Gym for your mind. 5, 10, 20, and 30 minute meditation rooms. Come in on you're lunch break and balance out your day out in 5 minutes. 10 minutes of meditation can balance out a whole 24 hour day. 5 minutes is great if that's all you can do, but 30 of course would be better.
Meditation is extremely critical to having balance in life. There's been hundreds of studies and events (ie. The White House experiment) that have proven that group meditation is more powerful and yields better results than meditating solo. Plus when I personally meditate with someone it just feels better, more natural, and more powerful. I'd love to bring/spread this type of energy into the world. This is one of my biggest passions. And a dream that will be realized.
-The Safe Kids initiative: 2014
A facial recognition software program will do the following:
-Find pictures of your children on the internet (ie. social media sites). *will ONLY work with CHILDREN that you have documented proven legal custody of.
-Warn the account holder of a 30 day suspension if all pictures of your child are not deleted.
-Provide public profile information on the account that has the child's pictures to the parents.
-Appropriately handle all disputes for "look alike" pictures (for the cases where it is, in fact, not your child)
-Establish and maintain a reputable relationship with all social networking websites so the suspension and termination (if need be) of all not compliant accounts can be swift, warranted, and documented.
*If the account you child's pictures are on is in fact secretly owned and operated by your child then at least they won't be able to post nor send pics (ie. social network's unboxing systems).
-Social Media Group Following: 2014
ie. If you're a big fan of a show (or movie, group, band, etc) you should be able to, in one click, to follow all of the "major" members of that show/movie etc.
-"All Natural Competition": 2014
A beauty competition involving no make up nor hair product judged on just the face. Categories include: Best Natural Male, Best Natural Female, Best Natural Male with Assisted Hair Styling (all hair styling must be done backstage on date of event for all categories), Best Natural Female with Assisted Hair Styling, etc. All Natural beauty being acknowledged.
-Website called "Highlights Plus" 2015
A website similar to youtube but it's just highlight films of all categories. Short sweet and to the point and another "Plus" section for those same videos with a few extra good clips added to them. The good stuff that didn't make the actual highlight film. Just highlights. No babies throwing up in their mom's mouths as funny as that is. Just highlight films.
-Disaster Pods 2015
Basically a stackable portable tiny apartment. Hundreds of them can be delivered to a disaster location and act as a temporary living quarters for victims of natural disasters. It beats sleeping in a high school cafeteria with hundreds of strangers: Some felons, some sexual offenders, some gang members, and some of them snore really loud, all night.
-"The Busted App" 2015
This is an app that I came up with when wondering how people put up with their spouses going through their phones and breaking their necks to see their passwords. Personally I wouldn't put up with that behavior.
But seriously, I truly believe this app will reduce the amount of domestic arguments because people would be scared to get caught. And it will shed some light for others.
-Text Stream 2016
You can live feed a video through your text messages. Added options will be to save the video, forward the video, groups, etc. For us non iPhone users who don't have facetime lol.
-Final Snooze Alert 2016
If your all set to hit the snooze button 3 times before you have to get up for work in the morning, how are you to know if it's time number 2 or 3. Are you willing to bet your job or career on it. Remember this is how you feed yourself and your family. "Final Snooze Alert" is a feature that Alarm apps can add that play a totally different sound at a totally different volume on the last snooze letting you know to GET UP! Vibration and LED color and light up pattern options also available
-SUV Remote (Smart Universal Voice Remote) 2017
A usb inserted device that allows smart devices to be used on your TV. Enabling an Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home to change the channel on any TV that has a usb port. Future Generations will allow you control most devices that have a usb port ie. "Alexa turn on my laptop and open google drive document called Inventions".
-THERE ARE SO MANY MORE THAT I CANT THINK OF RIGHT NOW, AND SO MANY MORE TO COME. I'LL KEEP YOU POSTED :-)
