InventionsDid I hear that the photocopier was invented over 30 years before it was mass-manufactured? Did I hear the everlasting light bulb works and was patented but never produced? Did I hear of some U.S.A. Patented ‘Hobogen Project’ that delivers infinite worldwide electricity without polluting and using raw materials?

We have all heard such rumours but someone out there knows the truth. Are these just rumours or are useful inventions slowed or pushed aside and un-used?

Technology is certainly moving fast but it is also moving at a pre-determined speed, being constantly regulated by forces stronger than ‘logic’. This system of ‘timing advances’ is common, and the consumer has no way of knowing what would happen if all inventions were explored, prototyped and assessed for global or local ‘usefulness’.

As ‘new’ things appear regularly, we think that inventors are busy, happy and un-frustrated – or do we? Why was it that the inventor of the ‘clockwork radio’ found it tough going to get his great product noticed early and into production?

I know that many inventors are concerned about discussing their ideas because of ‘idea-theft’ and that sadly, some ideas never leave the drawing board, but there are things like ‘Non-Disclosure Agreements’ to help protect ideas whilst they are being discussed.

Perhaps most of the stuff we hear about the hard life of inventors is false, but if there is just one inventor out there reading this who feels their inventions should be making more headway, then the World should give them a platform from which to speak, as we depend upon such enlightened individuals.

Perhaps there is a web site I have not found yet? Perhaps it exists but few inventors trust to use it? Whatever the situation, if you know something I should know, let me know!

Eddy Champion

Eddy ChampionThe living spark that is ‘Eddy Champion’ is all ready for a new adventure. Since the Eddy Champion Comic first appeared where he told the story of his daring rescue of a snail caught in a drain pipe on a stormy night, Eddy has responded to the call of nature day and night from his secret under soil M.U.D. (Main Utility Department).

Never daunted by any cry for help from a fellow earth-creature, the World’s most exciting, fearless and legless worm is ever-ready to leap over newspaper racks faster than a frightened tortoise.

Eddy pushes the environmental concerns of millions into the public arena and from his Caster Cave deep below the turf, he champions environmental causes on behalf of all the little creatures that get neglected.
