Happy National Inventors’ Day! In honor of this day for inventors, we thought we’d shed light on a major part of inventing – problem solving.
No matter how big or small, inventions should not be taken for granted for at some point they solved a serious problem for a new mom, member of the military, fashionista, or perhaps someone who loves engaging in do-it-yourself activities. Creativity, innovation, as well as determination are employed to produce a vast array of new inventions throughout the world.
Solving a problem or finding its need has been going on for hundreds of years. Early man was determined to come up with inventions of his own, such as the wheel that still plays a pivotal role in our lives today. Perhaps the best way to discuss what type of inventions are needed in the future is to examine some of those that solved various needs in the past.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has invented a multitude of products since its inception in 1958. This prolific problem solver has created many products that have made our everyday lives more comfortable and safe. While the products were initially designed for urgent needs and to solve many safety, comfort, or technical problems, they have also solved numerous everyday problems when they became part of the mainstream.

Welcome to the New Year! Happy 2014! Ah, the start of a fresh, new year and all of its potential. A blank slate that is ready to be filled.

Almost half (45 percent) of Americans make a New Year’s resolution, with one of the most popular and hardest to keep being to lose weight or live a healthier life. If this is your New Year’s resolution, the HAPIfork may aid in successfully reaching this goal. This electronic device measures how long it takes users to eat a meal, the amount of fork servings taken per minute, as well as the intervals between each fork serving. The information is uploaded via a USB or Bluetooth to improve the individual’s eating behavior. According to a series of scientific studies eating meals too quickly leads to weight gain, digestive problems, gastric reflux, and postoperative complications. Read More >>
Dragon’s Den originated in Japan with variations that then spread to various other countries including the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Israel, Ireland, as well as the U.S. With the popularity of Shark Tank growing throughout the U.S., we thought we would take a look at its predecessor to the north.
The Canadian version of Dragon’s Den began airing in 2006 and is currently in its eighth season. With some 2 million people tuning in each week, it’s one of Canada’s most watched shows. The current season features 20 episodes with five special episodes: student special, holiday special, second chance show, update special, and a Canadian-themed episode.
Shark Tank fans received a few early Christmas gifts. First, ABC has ordered four more episodes of the hit TV show. Combined with the two additional episodes featured in October, the total order for season five is 28 episodes!
In addition, CNBC has licensed the exclusive off-network cable rights to Shark Tank. Starting on January 7, 2014 Shark Tank swims over to CNBC at 8 and 9 pm on Tuesdays.
With the holiday nearly here, why don’t we take a look at a few products that were pitched on Shark Tank that may provide the perfect last-minute present? Read More >>

Happy Birthday to Eli Whitney today who was born on December 8, 1765.
As most of us know, Whitney is most famous for inventing the cotton gin, which highly streamlined the process of extracting fiber from cotton seeds. It produced more cotton in one hour than would be produced by multiple workers in one day. Unfortunately, Whitney struggled to earn any money for this invention as the patent was widely pirated. However, his affinity for machine work and technology led to success in various other fields you may be unaware of: Read More >>
