  • Could this be used to charge from small a water turbine generator such as this: http://a.co/7feGy1I

    If not, any suggestions on what I could use?

  • Does anyone have any suggestions for an LRA to use with this? I want to get "click" effects, and my thought is that an LRA would be better with these. However, you only sell and ERM, and I'm having trouble finding a reasonable source for LRAs. Alternatively, has anyone tried producing a "click" effect with an ERM?

  • It’s always fun to trash patents, but take a look at, for example, the fishing robot. Claim 1 has so many parts that they run out of letters, and get all the way to (xx) using double letters. In order for your alternative fish-catching-and-cleaning robot to infringe this patent, it has to have all of those parts that work in the way described — and the inventor has had to tell you enough about his invention so that you can figure out just how it works. So now, armed with that information, you can change and improve on his invention, and make something better (and that doesn’t infringe).

    And take a look at the edible 3d printer filament patent. He’s told you how to produce it, including his magic ingredient: polyvinylpyrrolidone. So go out and find something that works better than polyvinylwhatever (and maybe is easier to pronounce), and patent it yourself — or open source it if you like. Or do both!

    And, by the way, the US patent on form-fitting pants (https://www.google.com/patents/US3068871) expired in 1980, so go ahead do whatever you like with that one! ***

    *** There are other design patents on things like pants (see https://www.google.com/patents/USD736495 for example) but these are completely different, and provide protection to ornamenal designs, not to innovations — don’t be fooled (See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_patent)

  • Anyone know of an enclosure that would fit this nicely?

No public wish lists :(
