Starting to Log my Story for my own reference, and to help me figure things out…
This document is a personal story of My life’s journey with inventing and thinking?
There have been to many Coincidental ideas that I have thought of and then seen it materialize, of come into market.
Throughout my life I have studied inventions and technology.
When I was 5 years old in 1975′ my dad taught me basic electronics,
we made an electromagnet and a motor with just some scrap pieces of wood, metal, wire, 9 volt battery, and a nail.
The next year or so I received my 1 st erector set, and some legos,
and it was on!
So anyways back to the story. ..
I need to figure out for Myself why I have had some many
Ideas, inventions, and other various types of art (I have a lot of Copyrighted material)
So it started with 1975-76′ erector set creations, and Lego builds
Not much here to talk about just the actual time it all started to develop.
I did build some pretty interesting things, and always original stuff
The I remember the most was the exploding Lego ball
We would make rubber band paddle boats, so I had the idea to apply that with all my legos wrap around it, fully wound, with a Lego pull pin
Walked into the kitchen where my mom and uncle sitting at the table,
I had my uncle pull the pin, We heard a winding noise for a second,
Then BOOM! legos everywhere!!
My mom obviously was Mad, my uncle thought it was cool.
So another early memory is drawing a Rocket and launch area,
I was Really into Star Trek and Star Wars (still I am to this day!)
anyways in the picture was a rocket on a launch pad with a fuel hose going to the ocean (cause I knew NASA was by the ocean)
And I remember my mom saying “How is the water powering the Rocket?)
and I said without hesitation “someday we will have Hydro power!”
I always tried to be technical even as a kid,
and this memory from the 70’s makes me wonder with today’s
Hydro power, how did I in vision this?
Also as a kid I would draw a lot of pictures of high tech cars
They would be equipped with cameras, oil slick, smoke screen, guns, ect…
I know alot was influence by James Bond 007 movies and Batman’s batmobile
Just I now I drew these pictures in great detail like a plan
I would show the actual wiring, and mechanics I believed it would take to make everything work,
I had an idea for the Metal windows like on the Batmobile
Simple Three windows on separate tracks
1. Regular glass (except it’s bullet proff!)
2. Tinted glass ” ” ” ”
and I would draw up hidden compartments that you cloud open with secret actuators.
and probably the coolest original idea I had even tho I know the auto industry was working on it also… it’s just in 1979′ I had know way to know?
anyways I was starting to learn about LED light emitting diode
and figured I could make a digital display in my car and it would work from the analog gages a/d conversion before I was taught in electronics
I also drew up a complete plan of my house (Laboratory)
Complete with cameras, sensors in the floor, and microphones
All connected to my computer a commodore 64
By 1985′ I was really into computers and programming, and electonics.
Me and one of my Best friends Mike Cabanaw where in a computer class at High School, although we where in middle school, we took a senior class computer test and past to get special permission.
We had to do many programing projects, and one I will Never forget
was a “program application” at the time home pc’s where just starting to come out and software was just starting to be developed.
The project was to create a viable software program.
I was also just starting to learn how to play the guitar and couldn’t read music?
I was learning by a New method at the time called Tabliture
Now days with the Internet every guitar player knows about tabs
Anyways again this was 1985′
My project idea was a Music notation to guitar Tabliture conversion program
I worked for weeks programming, and going through All my guitar magazines (they had 4-5 songs every issue with sheet music and tab)
