Inventors meeting 8/27/08

Part of the challenges we face is getting our ideas brought to life. Having a good looking prototype really makes a difference when you are trying to sell people on your idea. This week we are pleased to welcome back Mark Kemper of EMS to share with us some of the latest projects he has been working on. He plans on talking about some recent projects EMS did that included: scanning, product design, prototyping and production.
They include:
- A medical product
- The drummer leash product.
- looney pals shoes
- mechanical pencil product
- guardian lion kids GPS tracking product
Mark will answer many of your questions regarding prototyping and developing a polished product. Please join me in welcoming Mark to the meeting!
Also, we will hear from Startec about an opportunity coming up soon to become one of their next tenants. This will be a great meeting so don't miss it!
