  • Amuzing as always – The British Invention Show 2017

    Posted on November 10th, 2017 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    The BIS 2017 was held at Barbican Exhibition Hall in London, same place as last year. The first difference I’ve noticed was Banksy art at the wall right opposite the front door :) The next one was that international number of inventors had risen compared to previous year and number of British inventors was a little less , say 1/4 th only. Exhibition was groovy as always. I saw very simple inventions and complicated ones. The youngest inventor at the show was 12 years old Sarah from London with her LollySpin, the flashiest was Paul A. Sparrow with his  X-Pro Tools , the sharpest was Martin Chard with his Marxman pen , the furthest South-Korean Electrical Corporation Inventors with their Cable Failure Detection and Line Finder and  the coolest for me personally were National Defence University of Malaysia professors with their inventions Bamboocrete and  How to make the Hydrogen out of Algi.  Yes, there was lots to see and discover and surely we will go back to the show next year. To prove that here is well educational interview with the english inventor Paul A Sparrow who invented this new kind of spirit level and also started a very first crowdfunding platform in Britain :

    The Awards & afterparty  were held at Charted Accountants House which is a impressive building in the City of London and also has a great cuisine. The band which played  for us  was led by Roderick Brosse who is also an inventor but  known to the public as quitarrist from the Beatles album “Imagine”. Awards ceremony was held by Kane Kramer, the founder the British Invention Show and inventor of the first Digital Audio Player. Here is a great chat we had with Kane later on

    The slideshow can be seen here which was taken by my mate Inch. Enjoy :)

  • Britain attracts inventors for so many reasons

    Surprise inventor Mr Lin from China with his waterproof socket called SocketKing @BIS

    Why so? I recon because of Britain stands out for its differences, engineering skills and industrial input to the world economy but not just. I do believe there is also something genuine in britts which makes inventing even more possible and that is No fear to be different or a nutter’ as we say ;) So, if you are british and you think that car can run on 3 wheels only – you can just do it and that is acceptable by the society. Not to mention their inch, foot and pint. By other words in Britain You can be different just like Mr. Bean and that is absolutely norm.

    The British Invention Show 2016  was held at Barbican Exhibition Centre, London from 19-22nd October. This years show was smaller but still gathered over 50 inventors from 8 countries around the World. The Silver, Gold and Platinum awards where given in many categories to thank inventors for their hard work. The main trophy went to Croatian team for their age recognition system for internet users. You can read more about the show at the British Inventor’s Society homepage or visit Britishinventionshow.com . Also you can watch interviews at the BIS Vimeo Channel and see photos at Invention News Facebook gallery. The British Invention Show was founded by Mr. Kane Kramer, inventor of the Digital Audio Player, back in 2000 and is run  by the British Inventor’s Society every Autumn.

    * As I have been inspired by Britts once again, I will start Estonian Invention Show soon. Dates to be confirmed but talks with partners have already started. If you would like to support or join in then please let me know via eMail : leo@estonia100.com , Cheers !

  • The 15th British Invention Show continued its legacy

    Posted on November 4th, 2015 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    I had a great chance to visit the 15th BIS anniversary show @ Barbican Exhibition Hall, London last weekend. It was historical moment indeed as Kane Kramer, man behind the show since its beginning 2001, called many national and international inventors together again to the place where the BIS was held at the very first time.

    It is clear that this kind of show is much needed also to aknowledge and promote inventors who are actually making innovation possible in many areas.  Well, frankly there would not be any innovation without inventions. I hope this message gets across to governmental institutions to support not just companies but also private inventors who making their efforts to improve the quality of our everyday life.

  • Better than recycling !

    Posted on March 9th, 2011 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    As times are rough , we got to think harder how to handle available resources. Statistics say that around 1/3 of food goes to the bin in Britain only… Shocking !!! But this is not just food that goes to the bin. There are all sorts of things, what could be recycled or even reused instead ! Englishman Peter Martin has come up with some great ideas how to tackle this issue. Here is just one of them :

    Junkk - Rubbish needn't be a dirty word

    I had an honour to meet Peter at British Invention Show 2009. Things have moved on since and many more great ideas have been added to his project :  http://www.junkk.com

    So, Stop before you bin anything !  Perhaps it can go around again …

  • Ollie’s wheels are rocking !

    Posted on November 13th, 2010 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    I met inventor Ollie from Cambridge at British Invention Show in October. Somehow I managed to miss him out of my first story and therefore writing one now.

    Ollies new concept in speaker design captured my eye as soon I entered to the show.  Eco friendly using recycled tyres to house speakers of custom specification is something I haven’t seen before. I’ve seen some tyre-clocks and flowerpots though , but no speakers. Ollie is so passionate about his tyre-speakers that he has even got his Patent pending. Well, what can I say ? Recycling is a BIG thing and good for all of us !

    The 9th British Invention Show is coming up soon and it will be the largest of all times ! The show will be held at Alexandra Palace, London from 14th-17th October 2009. There are more than 400 inventions on the list already including nearly 200 from overseas.  It is apparently the UK’s  Nr. 1 innovation Expo which is hosted by British Inventors Society and supported by the UK IP Office and Business Link.  So, if you have an innovative product and you’d like to be out there, please get yourself registered by 14th September ! I will be most certainly going to see it and I can help you to promote your invention and company there as well. Although two conditions apply : 1.You got to pay your fees (£480.- per square Meter)   2. You have a Estonian made innovative product.
