April 2012 Meeting Recap

The April meeting featured a lot of newcomers.  Interestingly enough, it turned out that two groups that got here independently were neighbors at one time!   Small world.


The whole group was good sized, and featured a great mix of successful and brand new inventors.

One of our attendees, Sam Conte, showed a newly received patent for an innovative cover for aircraft pitot tube probes.  Congrats!

Another, Kaleb Reinhart, explained how he had invented an iPad mount and just barely started to sell it when it was acquired by a large consumer products company.  It now sits on shelves at Best Buy and Kaleb receives regular royalties.  Very cool!

And, of course, we had some pizza and some great conversations.
