Over the years I've had many different inventions. The ones that I never got a chance to pursue grossed over a billion dollars. So I decided not to take any of them to the grave with me. So here they are. Starting with my most current project "Zombietown"
The first Amusement Park / Reality TV Show / Interactive Web Series every!
We've take a rundown poor town and moved all of it's occupants in a new apartment complex. Everything is paid for in exchange for there services as professional zombies.
A Few square miles of abandoned single family homes, diners, gas stations, and stores. Not completely abandoned though. Turn the wrong corner and you'll encounter zombies.
In groups or on your own spend up to a week fending for yourselves in this zombie infested town. Experience the zombie apocalypse first hand.
Available packages options:
-1-7 day packages
-1-7 bite packages
-Unlimited bites package available
-Group rate discounts
-Each participant will be given a rechargeable flashlight and 2 melee weapons at the start. A foam knife and a foam machete.
-An Airsoft m92fs pistols will also be given at the start (with 1 full magazine) and full instruction on how to use them. Ammunition, magazines, gas, etc. will be hidden in most houses and buildings along with canned food and bottled water.
-Zombies fall with a strike or shot to the head. Anything else will only disable their limbs. They will act accordingly. i.e. A zombie with a shot leg will limp.
-There will be 1 zombie supervisor with each horde who will control the horde's movement and be in constant contact with headquarters.
-Zombies will not run nor climb. When killed, after 5 minutes they will get up and act as a different zombie.
-Participants are aloud to bring a book bag (provided by Zombietown) with as much food, etc. as they can carry.
-Participants will remove all personal belongings except their shoes and undergarments before being given Zombietown coveralls and the above listed items.
-Participants will be given 2 pairs of coveralls. 1 black and 1 tan. Black indicates that you do not want to be approached by others (you are invisible). Tan means that you're willing to join a group.
-The unused overalls will be kept in the cellphone locker in case a user chooses to change his/her experience in Zombietown.
-No Cell phones aloud. Customers will keep their cell phones in a locker in a locker room in the center of town (supervisor at door). Spend as much time as you need in the locker room. Return cell phones to exit.
-There will be a tipped over cone on every porch. If that cone is standing up, that house is occupied by either staff restocking items or another team that does not want to be disturbed. DO NOT ENTER.
-Every house will have at least one can of food, flashlight charger ports, and one can of green gas (for the pistols) (charger and gas are not to be removed). Some houses will have the following: Microwaves, Airsoft pistols, melee weapons.
Every Zombie you encounter will be purposeful, documented, and monitored.
-Zombies will have a piece of double sided tape on their chest. When pressed up against a customer it will stick to them and act as a bite. The zombie supervisor will document that and the customer then has 24 hours to live.
-Supervisor will give the option to purchase more time.
-If no time is purchased, wherever he/she is in 24 hours a horde will take over the area and they will not survive (the same applies for people who's time is up).
-dying customer can choose to tell their group that they are going to be overrun the next day or not.
-A Key Fob bracelet will be put on all participants. Online spectators can click on a participants name and follow them online. The camera closes to a participant will be activated automatically.
-Cameras will be in every room except the bathrooms and the locker room.
-Bathrooms are fully functional
-Each participant will be searched for anything that could hurt an employee of Zombietown.
-The zombies are paid actors who have to go home from work just like you. All melee weapons will be foam and provided by Zombietown before entry.
-Do not assault or shoot at other teams/participants. If your paths cross, you can choose to work together. Any hostility will result in a removal and a lifetime ban.
-No hand to hand combat aloud AT ALL!
-Video surveillance will be monitored and recorded 24 hours a day.
-Any customer who caused injury to a Zombietown employee will be banned for life.
-Wrist bands must be worn at all time so we can monitor the heart rate, location, etc. of all participants.
-The "safety word" is Mississippi. When you yell it, all zombies will drop and the game is over for you. No refund. i.e. if you paid for a week and can't handle the pressure after the first hour. Game over no refund (6 month ban from park)
*large groups will result in "multiply hordes strategical strikes" coordinated by supervisors and headquarters.
*Camps can attack other camps. No shots are to be fired at another customer. If so you will be ejected (6 month ban from park). If you are at gunpoint, give up your good and move on.
-Before a team strikes they must let a supervisor know. That supervisor will hide some guns in the nearby houses for disarmed participants.
*Video backstory: More signs
Here's the deal. Over the years I've come up with some pretty good ideas for inventions. And for those of you who don't know, when you go to one of the invention companies, they want around $13,000.00 to get an invention up and running. So up until now, most of my inventions have remained in my mind, as a secret. To be most effective in this world I've decided to share my ideas in hopes that one day the world can benefit from my creative side. Call me Crazy, lol! but those who know me, wouldn't be surprised at all!
-Some time in the early 90's (before 1994) I was hooked on the game Street Fighter 2. And i was a huge Comic Book Character fan with a very large collection of Comic Books and Cards. I'll never forget this. I went up to my dad one day and said "hey dad, if we created a video game with Street Fighter character fighting Comic Book characters, everyone would buy it." he replied "boy ain't nobody gonna by that shit!" LMFAO. I love my pops. And I'm sure there's been millions of gamers who have also thought the same thing. Kudos to their creativity, and congrats to the people who capitalized on it.
-In 1995 we moved into a new home. A lot bigger than the apartment we had moved from. One day coming back form a weekend vacation to Wildwood, the house was blazing hot. I went to the thermostat box and said to my dad "what do you think about a box that you can call and push a few buttons to control the temperature from any phone anywhere". he replied "boy ain't nobody gonna spend money on that, when they could just set it before they leave the house!" I said what what about last minute schedule changes and stuff". I got no answer but the idea always stayed with me. I was 14 at that time. As you can see with technology the way it is, someone else has tapped into their creative forces and made my idea into a reality. And for that, I thank them. Them creating those devices reassures me that my creations and ideas are in fact not only good, but great ideas worth millions. That alone is payment enough for me. Every time I see a commercial for this I laugh a little and consider it a success.
-1998 Creds: My "Cred" system
-1999. Me and my cousin Taz use to eat at the Philly Diner almost every night. And they use to have the best chicken fingers. I have to admit, Taz did introduce me to dipping them in buffalo sauce, I wasn't a big chicken finger person. But it only took me seconds before I placed an ordered to have mine covered with buffalo sauce. Everywhere we ate I would order my chicken fingers smothered in buffalo sauce. And everywhere I went they looked at me like I was crazy. Now they're on every menu I see. Buffalo Chicken Fingers. It's silly, I never thought to give it a name. I would just ask if they could smother my chicken fingers in buffalo sauce lol.
-Somewhere around 1999 or 2000 i was playing a game called Shenmue for my Sega Dreamcast. I was hooked on that game. Anyway, it was cold outside (in New Jersey) and I had been playing for hours with a blanked on and it was a haste to deal with. Then it hit me. "Throw some sleeves and maybe a pocket or 2 in this blanket and I'm good"! Sound familiar? And as i said before, I'm sure there's been millions of gamers who have also thought the same thing. Kudos to their creativity, and congrats to the people who capitalized on it.
sometime in 2004 while eating my favorite food, chicken parm, I came up with an idea to wrap a thin piece of chicken around a tube shaped piece of mozzarella cheese. Or inject a tube shaped peice of chicken with mozzarella cheese and dip it in some maranara sauce. Thus was born "Parm Poppers". I tore my kitchen apart making prototypes. Adding different ingredients, spices, etc. Invention company wanted $14,000.00 and "up to 6 months" to make a move. SMH!
2006. You can create a file of ringtones that rotates every time your phone rings. This will have an option to exclude the ringtones that are assigned to specific contacts. I've got so many classic ringtones on my phone, and I'm tired of hearing the same one for every call. And who wants to constantly change their ringtones? Surprise me!
-"Neo's Spirit Beads"
In September of 2010 I saw a rise in the sales of rosaries. But they weren't colorful and they were expensive. I had a thought, to make affordable rosaries that served their normal purpose plus could be stylish. That was the start of Neo's Spirit Beads, and neosspiritbeads.com. Theme or team colored rosaries that don't cost an arm and a leg. Neosspiritbeads.com is still up and running and open for business. And since my first order of beads and strings we have been sending rosaries to US Soldiers.
-"Mirror Crown Molding"
January 2011. Imagine if the crown, chair (middle), and floor molding of a black and white living room were all mirrors. Actually picture it, being able to see your reflect in the top mirror. A middle row that would seem to catch your eye when you move. And while your seated on a sofa, you can see behind you :) And floor molding that kinda makes the walls seem like there hanging form the ceiling. I'd pay a pretty penny for that.
-"Ringtone Timer App" (mobile app)
A cell phone app that will allow the user to set what times of day that he/she wants their cell phone to go from ring to silent/vibrate. ie. phone is set to automatically go to silent/vibrate from 10pm till 9am.
In June of 2011 I came up with an idea to make little plugs that plug into a wall, and you can plug things into them. The power supply to these plugs can be controlled by a remote, or your mobile device. This way anything you can plug into a wall (like lamps, radio's, etc.) can have a on/off remote.
It's basically Google Photo with passwords on photos and folders
-CYB App (mobile app): 2011
Count Your Blessings App. A mobile app that will sound an alarm asking the user what good thing has happened to them so far today (ie. around noon / lunch break). If the user is having a particularly bad day and decides not to answer, the alarm will sound again hours later (ie. after work) asking them again. The messages can be customized (so there not to aggressive), and the number of daily alarms can be changed as well. When the user does decide to respond to the alarm and type in a reply, it is recorded and can be viewed in chronological order. So you can always look at your phone, no matter what mood your in, and see several reasons to smile. The world needs more of the feeling a smile brings!
-The Safe Kids initiative: 2014
A facial recognition software program will do the following:
-Find pictures of your children on the internet (ie. social media sites). *will ONLY work with CHILDREN that you have documented proven legal custody of.
-Warn the account holder of a 30 day suspension if all pictures of your child are not deleted.
-Provide public profile information on the account that has the child's pictures to the parents.
-Appropriately handle all disputes for "look alike" pictures (for the cases where it is, in fact, not your child)
-Establish and maintain a reputable relationship with all social networking websites so the suspension and termination (if need be) of all not compliant accounts can be swift, warranted, and documented.
*If the account you child's pictures are on is in fact secretly owned and operated by your child then at least they won't be able to post nor send pics (ie. social network's unboxing systems).
-Social Media Group Following: 2014
ie. If you're a big fan of a show (or movie, group, band, etc) you should be able to, in one click, to follow all of the "major" members of that show/movie etc.
-"All Natural Competition": 2014
A beauty competition involving no make up nor hair product judged on just the face. Categories include: Best Natural Male, Best Natural Female, Best Natural Male with Assisted Hair Styling (all hair styling must be done backstage on date of event for all categories), Best Natural Female with Assisted Hair Styling, etc. All Natural beauty being acknowledged.
-Website called "Highlights Plus" 2015
A website similar to youtube but it's just highlight films of all categories. Short sweet and to the point and another "Plus" section for those same videos with a few extra good clips added to them. The good stuff that didn't make the actual highlight film. Just highlights. No babies throwing up in their mom's mouths as funny as that is. Just highlight films.
-"Drone Wars": 2016
Drone warfare style competitions using laser tag.
Ok you guys know I love participating in wartime shooting scenarios ie. my video games obsessions, paintballing, police work, etc. And you know I'm literally, over the top, obsessed with flying specifically helicopters and quadcopters aka drones. Well if you put them together you've got "Drone Wars". Race drone multi-rotors with advanced laser tag equipment onboard. Boom!
Since there are no real "shoot" buttons on professional transmitter like my DX6, I thought we could
-"The Affirmation App": 2017
Every hour my phone vibrates a few times. Nothing too abrasive (auto-snooze/auto-dismiss available). When I look at it, there is a preset positive affirmation displayed that I'll repeat to myself 10 times (in my mind or out loud). Times, ringtones/vibrations patters, and affirmations are customizable. Upon completion of this affirmation exercise there will be a button labeled "Next Affirmation". Pushing this button will display the next phrase in your list. This option is for the "go getters" that really want to improve their current situation sooner than later.
-THERE ARE SO MANY MORE THAT I CANT THINK OF RIGHT NOW, AND SO MANY MORE TO COME!
