Default Whatever Happened to Washington Hunter's Invention?

At least, I believe it was Washington Hunter who was telling us a year or so ago that he and his friends had a creation that would make any archer more accurate immediately. What came of that?

He's prolly got a patent on it, sold it to some big name company, and is sitting on a beach drinkin a root beer somewhere.....

I dunno, I remember something about that too, and I believe it was him.....

Like most great ideas, it went the way of the buffalo. Extinct.

For whatever reason, Josh and I decided the idea was a flop and dropped it.

Rest assured though, the idea was amazing and would have revolutionized the archery industry as we know it today.

Kidding, of course. It was a good idea in theory, but I think we both realized that it wasn't as great as we initially thought.

Plus, around the time that Josh and I were discussing this idea I lost my internet connection and didn't get it back for about six months.

Never quit inventing. It keeps the mind fresh. You also get you name in history and on file.

I've had a few ideas. Some patentable some trade markable. Only followed through with one to a patent filing. Didn't get it, but know I have a much better application then the ones who did. I've just let it die, since technology is moving so fast. I have another friend who did get his patent. I have to work harder since he has one leg up on me.

One thing you will find is that the individual inventer is going the way of the past. Corporations are more and more becoming the ones who file and win out there. It cost a lot of money to defend a patent. If you do come up with one selling it to the big guy maybe your best bet.
