As the Research/Marketing Analyst for IpAuctions, Inc.™, I have explored many industries and several aspects of the Intellectual Property field. Whether we are retained to assist in licensing or selling patents outright through our live on-line auctions or private offerings, I have had many opportunities to see into the windows of inspiration and the people who drive technology's growth that most individuals are unaware of.
Green Technology Inspiration
Davel Foote | IpAuctions, Inc.
- In a ten month study, China manufactures and exports over $823 million LED Christmas lights worldwide. During that same time it is estimated Americans use over 38 billion individual lights during the Christmas Holidays.
- Power companies across the US and Canada try to reduce power cost during peak seasons like Christmas. It has been calculated LED’s reduce power consumption by 90%.
- Commercial contractors in landscaping have increased the use of LED technology both in residential and commercial use, utilizing the brighter glow LED’s emit.
- Solar based holiday lights are still wired and come with a large solar panel mounted in the ground with a stake. This technology is unique with a miniature solar panel that charges a micro-coin cell battery (a rechargeable hearing aid battery) during the day via a trickle charge. At night a LED light comes on and discharges the battery.
This design won 3rd place at the “Watchamacalit” contest at the South Dakota State University’s Innovation Expo Conference.
