Yeah, it will be 5 years soon from the day I launched my homepage while I was living with my lovely wife & daughter Charlotte in the UK. It all happened in a rocky seaside town called Torquay which is the heart of the English Riviera , well known by its history and nightlife. Honestly this place is full of legends from the past like Charles Darwin, I.K.Brunel, Agatha Christie, Isaac Singer and many others. I must admit it is the most inspirational place on the planet Earth I ever lived in my entire life.
As many of yours, so did my parents devorce which I found hard to overcome. But life went on & so did I. After passing Oisu Primary School in flying colours I graduated Kuusalu High School in 1992 and then Tallinn Medical College in 1996 as Military Assistant Doctor. I practised in hospital & military field for few years before I left for the UK where I lived 12 wonderful years in total. Now, England really got me as I experienced & learned a lot in those years. I learned how to play tennis & golf, I studied sports medicine, I worked, I got married & we made a business. Also I was a keen member of local poetry club & writers club at St.Marychurch. After graduating as a Sports-Massage Therapist at South Devon College in 2001, I had a luck to work with some of the finest sportsman in the World. My massage clients included 4 World champions & 2 Olympic gold medalists. But that wasn’t my final call yet as you might of thought …

The first ever Estonian Inventors Conference was held at Mektory, Tallinn University of Technology campus on Friday the 13th December 2013. Now this is a serious stuff as within 20 years of freedom no such conference has been made! Let me ask Why? I guess reasons are obvious: Post-communist back does not encourage people to invent or to be creative individually but tells them to get a good job and obey the system instead. So this is not yet as trendy to be inventor or entrepreneur over here. The other reason is fact that the Estonian Inventors Association which is connecting independent inventors, has been performing low core and there are no funds in place to support such kind activity. It is almost expected that if you are serious inventor you must invent the money making machine first and then all other things on the top of that ! Apparently this is not the practice of the most innovative countries in the World today. All of them have made some serious investments to their public sector first, like Japan, Switzerland or Sweden who has the oldest inventors association in the World today …

The Latvian marine company Catrigroup led by Mareks Justs is looking for the sponsorship for their new ultimate trimaran Catri 25 on hydrofoils. Their previous yachts, built under the managment of inventor Aldis Eglājs were named as Catri 24, 26, 27 & 31. Surely they have done well, but now is the time for upgrade, said Mareks who believes that their new yacht is probably the fastest C-class trimaran in the World, which has been designed for both – Racing & Cruising. In fact 10 years ago Catri was the only trimaran on hydrofoils in the world, with 40% hydrofoilng. “Today we attend to be the first trimaran with 100% hydrofoiling that extremely increases speed up to 30 mph or more instead of 20-25mph and this difference on sailing yachts is big. More important is the Stability System invented by Aldis, which allows to sail on Catri even in open sea waves” – said Mareks. Catri 25 Team has set the target to compete at some of the major European races starting from March 2014. As we all know – good things take time. Therefore, if you are interested to join the team and to get your nice logo on Catri 25 trimaran, please contact to me soon by email: firstname.lastname@example.org as this sems to be rare, uncommon possibility for advertisement on the fastest yacht !

If you are inventor or would like to be the one, then you really should visit the Science Centre AHHAA in the City of Tartu ! It is kind of A&B in physics, technology & medicine which explains simply how things work. It also leaves some caps for your imagination how things could be if YOU decide to invent something
There are many attractions at Ahhaa centre which can buzz your mind so that you are amaized how easy it is actually to confuze your brain and knock out your sense of balance. I must admit I was buzzed till the end of the day when I first visited Ahhaa Centre about a couple of weeks ago with our latvian inventor-friends. Now being there for the second time last Thursday I am still buzzed by some of those tricks and by the fact that something wonderful like this has been created here in Estonia !
Well done guys !! It is the perfect day out for a family or anyone who is interested in technology, medicine or physics.
Want to know more just Go : www.Ahhaa.ee

What is the recipe for a Great invention show? – I asked myself when I was participating at Latvan show “Minox 2013″ for the first time last Saturday. Luckily I’ve got the answers, which I am planning to implement for our show in Estonia next Spring. Yes, you heard right – there is one coming up probably in April, so get your spirit ready to visit the Skype country !
Back to the show, I must admit it was the good one. First I saw many inventors presenting their groovy inventions, then I saw more ladyinventors than usual and then young inventors and even kid inventors which made me really happy : ) Great was also the place – Riga Technical University ,which is located by the river of Daugava and has also a great exhibition of Da Vinci inventions on its ground floor. Organizing committee led by Elmars Baltins did a great job with a programme and specially with the closing ceremony where every inventor got the certificate and mug to remember the show + of course they had some special prizes for better ones !
I was also impressed by Old town of Riga and the timing of the show as latvians celebrated Inventors’ Day & their 25th anniversary of freedom movement. So, if you are about to choose your next destination for the weekend break then take a flight to Riga and enjoy Da Vinci exhibition @ the tech uni and Velo Riksi limo-services in Old Town
Seeyou in Riga next year !

The 7th annual Week of Innovations which was held at Viitasaari from 19-21st september gathered more inventors and visitors this time around. Luckily it was held nearly 2 months earlier than last years event, so we even could jump into the beautyful lake by the hotel sauna …
As times are hard and recession continues we surely need more innovative solutions and inventions to improve our technologies and to save money. Surely, the trend is to produce more stuff with a less energy and manpower. How to do this? That is the question. But not for those who are on it every single day – they just do it ! Therefore it is always pleasure to see what good neighbours have done and to show off our new solutions & toys’ as well.
So, how was the show and what sort of inventions we saw this time? Well , the show was great & inspirational as always and those who didn’t come missed all fun ! Veijo Vaakanainen from Finnish Inventors National Federation - Kekery has just released the Video footage about the show on his Youtube channel.
This time we had inventors also from Poland & Hungary although our Swedish friends from Triljard.com couldnt make it. Hopefully next year … But the good news is that Estonian team had grown from 4 to 10 members and so we had even our own little street ! Inventors and their inventions of this street were next : Aavo Murutalu – A simple method of taking 3D photos with any camera , Indrek Hallikmäe – Tiretower , Enno Sinipalu – filament , Hando Kruuv with his unique Pendulum , Karmo Kaaristo - Pneumobile , Kalle Köömnemägi presenting Meiren OÜ snow blows , our high-end designer Leonardo Meigas with his unique chair and myself with the IdeaGuru – which is the cellphone application for would be inventors & entrepreneurs Worldwide / Out soon !
My personal favourite invention this year was the Airplane-Sauna called Flying Pig’ invented by finnishman P. Penttilä which i found very entertaining & also refreshing experience as the sauna was on !! :)* For more photos & comments please visit my Facebook Gallery.

I launched my homepage with the wish to help would-be inventors and to introduce Estonian made inventions Worldwide in Spring 2009. As a young inventor who lived in Torquay, UK at the time, I had no idea what sort of World I had entered to. Finally now, which is nearly 5 years on I can see the fruits of my leighbour.
I guess it is a dream of most inventors to hit the front page of the tech magazine or to crack the mainstream news channel. So it was mine, but mainly for a sake of my fellow inventors who have been abused by the system. As many of us know the Soviet Estonia was much different place as it is today …
The legacy of our prime invention – Skype has changed this land to the land of plenty of IT solutions. Many of them like GrabCAD , Fits.me & TransferWise are making their way to the World markets. Inspired by the success of those companies many youngsters here are dreaming to become the next generation IT millionaires. True, if there was no internet or blogging – there was no “Estonian Inventor” either .
But there is & for that reason I am IN ! And so has one of my dreams come true just last week when our main tech magazine Inseneeria released the cover-story with the best Estonian made inventions of all time. Yes, it surely feels good to be at cover of the magazine with something what matters to my people, but it feels even better to raise up those brilliant inventors who have done so well for my little country !
Refreshed TOP 10 is here for you to read. If you have suggestions how to improve it, please post your comments to Inseneeria or my FB page.
