Happy National Inventors Day

Posted on February 10, 2017

In recognition of the enormous contribution inventors make to the nation and the world, Congress designated February 11 as National Inventors’ Day back in 1983 because it was the birthday of inventor Thomas Alva Edison.

Edison held over 1,000 patents from the light bulb to the motion picture camera and was affectionately known as America’s greatest inventor. While it’s true we’ve all come to depend on Edison’s inventions, we’d also like to take the time to recognize another very important inventor in our lives.

Our founder, Shane Chen, is the brilliant mind behind all our inventions here at Inventist. Shane has over 30 patents, from the Aqua Skipper to the new Solowheel Iota. Many of his inventions have gotten national and even worldwide attention, being featured on such programs as QVC and CNBC’s Squawk Box. We’ve also received images and videos of fans using his inventions in Australia, Italy, and Russia.

Shane, as your staff, we would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday and to say a BIG thank you for all you do!  For us, this day will always be National Inventist Day! 😉
