    I think that innovation without invention is like a car without engine. In order to get new brands and businesses going we need new inventions and services with cutting edge. To get those we surely need inventors. Developed countries do understand the value of intellectual property rights (IPR) and the power of invention much better than those behind. Therefore they also look after their technically gifted people and help them to materialize their dreams. Finland seems to be one of those countries who is taking care of their inventors in order to improve the quality of life and to raise its prosperity for further generations.

    Finnish Inventors Week gathered more than 40 inventors with over 60 inventions at  Viitasaari, South-west Finland from 8-10th November. Estonian Team was presented with 4 inventions: Berry Picking Machine by Hando Kruuv, Radon Filter by Rein Koch & Alar Jantsikene, Chord Viola by Gabriel Passov & Raybike by Raino Sinisalu. There was a great interest about Raybike and Handos berry picking machine. Last one even made it to the national countryside newspaper, but the rest was also checked up by various journalists and is likely to make some headlines in a local paper and Finnish inventors Magazine.  Raybike, which is still looking for the investor was kids favorite for sure 🙂 alongside with the little camera-helicopter shows, constructed by finnish photographer Jari Tuukkanen . There were also many other groovy and useful inventions presented by private inventors & various companies. Photos of the show are uploaded at my Facebook page & Video is here Finnish inventors Week 2012 was supported by Viitasaari Town  and  Witas OY. The next show will be held in a year and is expected to grow much lager.

    Unfortunately we had no support from any of our state institutions and that perhaps shows the attitude towards to independent inventors and their association in Estonia overall. Despite low numbers our best inventions of all times have come & will continue to pop up from private sector indeed.  What are these inventions  then? You can see as soon you ll check up my  TOP10  page : o)

    Finally  – The Special Thanx goes to Viitasaari town council , Witas OY & everybody else who has supported me & my fellow inventors !!
