American Inventor Judges Select New York And Chicago Winners

Ai_chicagonewyorkwinnerNot many inventors had success during the New York and Chicago American
Inventor auditions.  Wigberto Delgado invented the Urinator, which was
a device to allow men to urinate without having to lift the toilet
seat.  Darrell Fertakos invented Safety Bands, which was a band that
inflated to protect people from injury or to save people from drowning.  John Stark invented the Easy
Squeeze Ear Plug, which was a balloon that inflated in the ear.  Chris
Brooks invented a handheld massager that attached to a remote control.
All met with rejection from the judges.

David Skotzke invented the Hands Free Toilet Seat & Lid Lifter, which was a peddle to lift the toilet lid.  Weston Hinden invented the Snake Rake, which was an ergonomically designed rake.  Jessica Bilski invented the Mark In Time, which was a clock with a dry erase surface.  Jeffrey Bretz and Andrea Thomas invented a hands free flashlight.  Alvin Quiles invented the Skater Aid, which was a walker for roller skaters.  All got a yes from George Foreman, but no’s from all the other judges. 

Elaine Cato invented a backless brassiere, which was a bra with no back strap.  David Mallet invented The Wingman, which was an electronic device to help people find dates.  Doug Vetter invented a trash can lid cleaner.  Kristie Miles invented a car seat cover with vibration devices for an infant carrier.  Deryk Artioli invented the baby wedge which keeps a child’s head elevated.  Craig Forest and David Moeller invented The Claw, which was a device for hanging bicycles.  Ann Marie Bryan invented the Ready To Wear Speaker Gear, which was a vest with speakers that allowed deaf people to feel the music.  The judges put all through to the finalists round. 

After debating the inventions of the different finalists, the judges selected David Moeller & Craig Forest as the New York winners, and the judges selected Elaine Cato as the Chicago winner.

    I like Ricky DeRennaux’s model kit, the HT Custom Racers. It’s inventive and I think it can really help kids to learn about inventing. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Njn77XqwMH8

    I have to wonder about this show. I had nver watched it yet got into it this season. I decided to vote and while the choice was hard I wanted to vote for Ms Cato. However during the calling time for the East Coast my calls would not go through to her line ONLY the other two lines
    WHY is that?
    Yes I as dialing the correct number each time and I tried close to 20 times well into the night.
    I hope someone got to vote for her and while both the others were great I loved the Angel and cars I liked Ms Cato She was likable and I could see her passion.
    Good Luck Ms Cato. You should have had 5 more votes from my calls that would not go through, and who knows how many others that never got through.

    Elaine Cato is genius. I don’t know of a woman who wouldn’t want to purchase a backless bra. As for the judge who made her squirm because he thought she didn’t spend enough money on market research….he is not a woman. Good luck Elaine you have my vote. Even if you don’t win you will be able to sell your product.
