I write about the future, for Futurizon. I am a futurist, futurologist, but underneath I am an engineer. I can’t help having occasional ideas. Many are already patented, so I can’t proceed with them, and my own experience with patents is that they are a total pain, so even if they are truly novel, I have little interest in patenting anything else unless it will make me an instant billionaire. For all the rest of my ideas, I will just publish them, and if you want to use them, go ahead. If you feel guilty about exploiting me, make a donation to a charity of your choice.
Some of these ideas will be sound, some won’t. Some will already patented, or maybe even available to buy, but I won’t be the first person to reinvent something, it happens every day in every R&D department. So read on and enjoy.
