Every 4 to 6 months I have an idea for a new technology or a new application for an existing technology.
The company I work for does not invest in R+D and that annoys me, as I am unable to further develop my ideas without help.
Advised by a business-creation program, 18 months ago I removed some of the ideas I had previously posted here.
Now, after a couple of disappointments due to other companies patenting my ideas years after I had “invented them” -I guess they have discovered those thing independently, I’m not suggesting they have ever copied me-, and a conversation with Agustín Benítez of
Fotón Sistemas Inteligentes Ejercicios Resueltos at aKademy 2006, I am reposting those ideas here. I hope they are still useful as prior art.
Use a wifi (a MIMO mesh network) to build your own TV or radio. No licenses needed. It could be integrated in DVB-T set-top-boxes at a very low cost.
I started playing with this idea for the first time in late 2003 to replace autoguides and work as a GPS-like device uing low-emitting access points, whenever someone with a wificast-capable device is near the AP, the system is effectively working as a GPS system; read more about it in WifiGas). I even sent an e-mail to Seth Godin and he liked the idea.
Unfortunately, I never applied for this patent (I did not have the money to pay for the fees and expenses associated with a patent) and now News Corporation has made public they will start to use this technology in 2007 in the USA.Read it.
- Cremation DNA
Very simple idea: when someone asks for cremation, store a partially-sequenced DNA. Very useful for post-mortem identification. Read it.
- Multiplexing CAS and RAS
Describes how to use base-band codification to improve memory-access times (hardware). Read it.
- Snapshot System State Management
Also known as “The Poor Man’s UPS”. Read it.
