About a two-three decades ago I have designed and patented a small project. After all design work was done I've hired a professional Marketing company to market the product to some manufacturers.
As you may expect the whole project fell on its face, so to say. Invested money for research, patent and marketing is gone. However I knew one day I will come back and finished it.
For the past decades there have been a few attempts to achieve what I did so long ago but very few and very poor designs have been made and can be found today on the market.
I have tried to find the manufacturers of my product myself but not one company would sign a non-disclosure and non-use documents. Everyone wanted the product fully disclosed to a minute detail without myself having any protection from them, the manufacturers and their future sales. Well, I was waiting long enough and I guess now is the right time to tackle the long forgotten project again.
I've designed and have patented the Enclosed Window Blinds between two glass panes. The blinds become a permanent fixture of the window. The difference between all the designs you can see on the market today and one I have developed is in the way the blinds are fastened and operated by the user.
Everyone else is using Venetian blinds (bought from the store) and slapped them between the two glass panes. Well, any child could do that. The only thing good by the design is that no closing/opening cord is present, which was the main reason for the re-design.
I have a totally different approach to the problem.
I will not disclose any details here. What I need to be done is a prototype. I will supply the necessary details via engineering drawings and materials to be implemented.
The design can be implemented for house, buildings (commercial), large boats (Yachts), Trains etc.
I would need a sample of window for home use. Wood should be a preferred material for custom homes. For mass production starting with home windows the materials can be aluminum as an option.
Once the product prototype is done the same have to be marketed.
Now I am going to have my own manufacturing facility from the beginning to the end. All manufacturing shall be under one roof.
The marketing will be done through the Internet Marketing media.
Anyone interested to take the challenge and maybe a partnership as well?
And at the end a few words about myself. Born 1948 in Europe. Graduated as Mechanical Design Engineering Technician. Worked for many years in Germany (long before the Wall came down) and in Canada. At a moment been retired. Been married for the past 40 years with the same woman. Have 4 adult children (3 boys and one daughter).
