Inventors, innovators and developing new products
926_ 11/26/10- Talking with Tom Frey of the DaVinci Institute at the Inventor Showcase. Larry asked about some background and information about the event, the attendees and the inventors. Tom said, "We think the people that are developing new products are some of the most ingenious people out there. They dedicate their life to making the world better. Hollywood tends to trivialize the work of the inventor like the mad scientists. But actually they're providing a hugely valuable service. These people are dedicating a good chunk of their life and resources to get these products into the market and some of this stuff is absolutely fabulous, I mean it just jumps off the page when you look at it. I'm so amazed at the stuff they come up with every year and I feel empowered, I feel encouraged every year when I see all this activity." The Showcase features everything from manufacturers, to high tech to jewelry, just everything imaginable. :"Yeah, that's the real tricky thing for the judges. Going from booth to booth and actually evaluating some real sophisticated robotic product or some bio-medical product and then comparing it to games or jewelry, that's a tough job. But somehow it works. The credibility of the judges we have, there are so many talented people that are here, it's the credibility of the judges that adds weight to the awards that we give out at the end of the day. It makes this a fabulous event and it all comes together in the in the evening."
