So, I just had my 3rd interview with a large regional newspaper. Also got talked about in the Philadelphia Inquirer, but those guys didn't even bother to talk to me, or read the information materials I sent them. So, not surprisingly, the article is full of inaccuracies, like me winning the 5k grand prize, which most definitely didn't happen.
Still, publicity is publicity, and it's an essential component in any kind of crowd sourced campaign, and if there's one single thing I'm good at, it's getting my mug in the press.
As for the device, I met up with patent attorney friend, and we've been doing searches on my implementation. More on that coming up later. In the mean time though, this blog establishes me as an author of prior art, should it ever arise.
But on to technical details!
