Are you already an inventor?

Yes. Thirty plus issued patents; mechanism for signal seeking radios, used on Cadillacs and other GM cars for six years., patents on various dolls for Mattel, knee bending, hair growing, fingerprinting unit, swimming pool chemical holder, Et cetera. Important---all but two made money.

Are you willing to share your invention experiences at meetings and listen to the experiences of others?

Mattel's Barbie's bendable knee

A. What's your day job? __And: B. Why do you want to join this Meetup group? (Please answer both questions)

Engineering consulting - consumer products - appliances, medical disposable, I take the hand-waving of people with new ideas, making prototypes, and turn them into designs that can be manufactured, have a computer office and a machine shop.

Do you agree that you are not a service provider whose intent is to sell members on services or products? (You must answer "yes" to be considered for membership)

Networking. If I can help someone with their concepts, I will. My background is helping people understand the manufacturing processes used in bringing products to production status.


30+ patents. Ex General Motors, ex Mattel. What is the location of the Sherman Oaks meeting?

What Dick M. is saying about this Meetup Group

First meeting attended. Too soon to evaluate. Of the three 'experts', Miller was head and shoulders above the other two. I understand this was the second meeting and you are still finding your way.
