Featured Invention at the Colorado Inventor Showcase

Perhaps you’ve see the blinky lights on bicycles that make them safer and more noticeable at night. We took that to a new level, and way beyond. Imagine as a bicyclist decelerates by putting on the brakes, a bright brake light lights up just like on a car, but it isn’t wired to anything – just snapped to the bicycle seat post.

Software That Gives A Sense Of Touch In The Virtual Environment

Software That Gives A Sense Of Touch In The Virtual Environment 

Being a human, you feel; so do I. However, software can also feel! Surprised, one might be. But this is a reality, as an Edinburgh-based company has just launched an incredible software technology by the name of Cre8.

Understanding the new realities of economic development

Thomas Frey:  The USPTO is hiring. In fact they are doing a lot of hiring, over 1,200 new examiners every year, and they still can’t keep up with the deluge of new patent filings. But while the number of patent filings has grown from 90,544 in 1967 to 484,955 in 2007, a 535% workload increase in 40 years plus an equally growing backlog of patent applications waiting for examiner attention, and no more room to expand in their current offices, the agency is now looking at a different approach to solving their growing pains.

The Fleecing of America

 The Fleecing of America

Roger Cohen: World leaders converge on a battered New York this week for the United Nations General Assembly and my advice to them is: think Damien Hirst.

It’s not that I expect them to dwell on the British artist’s giant tanks of dead sharks and piglets at a time when the U.S. economy is being socialized to the tune of $700 billion ($2,000 for every man, woman and child in the country) as a result of a giant mortgage-related Ponzi scheme.
