    This was the first time when such a western show concept was introduced to Estonia. We had real inventors presenting their real inventions to the public and telling their stories at the stage. We also had guest speakers : EU Patent attorney Margus Sarap and FINF director and IPR expert Maunu Korpela from Finland.

    Gold medals were presented in 10 different categories and Public Award was given to inventor Jason Munro from England.

     

     

     Gold medals were given in 10 Categories :

    1. ENVIRONMENT –  Hydrogen cell for combust engines – Ecomotus Ltd / UK - Jason Munro

    2. CATASTROPHE –  Impulse Fire Extinguisher – Pulstech OÜ  - Allan Ventsel, Kalle Köömnemägi, Ardo Pärna and prof. Vladimir Zakhmatov

    3. MEDICAL – Microgenerator EHF – Valeri Aljas

    4. HOUSEHOLD – Fish Scaler – Hando Kruuv

    5. MUSIC – Chord Viola – Gabriel Passov

    6. LEISURE – Cumulus boat – Kalev Essenson

    7. CREATIVE DESIGN – Pearl Embroidery – Siret Esko

    8. BEST MATERIAL – Carbon Composites – Erismet OÜ – Ben Einborn and Rinaldo Olberg

    9. WORK WITH THE NEXT GENERATION  - National Contest for Young Inventors – Estonian Research Council – Margit Lehis

    10. CREATIVE SOLUTION  -  Arcallia – Kalle Köömnemägi and Veiko Huuse

    There were many more inventions presented at the show with working prototypes like magnetic motor by Raivo Pennaste and Anni Vahter, Biofor by Valeri Aljas, and a vertical windmill with recycled airplane wings by Ardo Pärna. Still, It is not so easy to engage public and media for a such a show. As we know 2-3% inventions can be commercially viable only. Therefore a startup or the tech show can attract more people as many things are working by then already. Regarding to invention, prototype is a very early and raw stage and needs to be tested many more times before the viable product can be made. Still, it is a great chance to meet inventors who are the original source of novelty. If we encourage those people and inspire public then society becomes more inventive and entrepreneurial and that will improve our technology and economy overall.

    Estonian Invention Show 2018 was supported by entrepreneur Veiko Huuse and  Arcallia which is a great platform for all inventors. To learn more about it please go to their homepage :  Arcallia.com.  I hope that Estonian state and the City Council of Tallinn can support the show one day as well.

    Inventor Nina Ignatius and me testing Myoton Pro at Stockholm ...

    It was really good to be at Swedish Inventors Association 125 Anniversary Show in Stockholm last week. We had more than 80 inventors from 17 countries presenting over 100 inventions ! Swedish people looked after us well and the Show was a Great success ! I saw some simple inventions and some really complicated ones.  Our box contained just 3 of those : Adjustable Reed by Kadi Pajupuu , Microgenerator EHF “Micro Fa” by Valeri Aljas and “Myoton Pro” by Myoton AS.  Although we missed the Awards due to late registration , we still got medals to take home :) which was decided by the jury made of participating countries.  The Gold medal came for the “Myoton Pro” , bronze for “MicroFa” and another bronze for our display.

    Congratulations to the winners and Big Thanx to all our supporters !!

    The 5th International Invention Show dedicated to the year of  Chemistry, will be held by the Association of Polish Inventors and Rationalizers in Warsaw from 3-5th November 2011.
