last year, I tinkered and invented a very minor device used in surgeries.
It has gone through several processes. Submissions, legal gobbly-gook, further applications, design redo's.
It has reached the stage where prototypes were actually tested.
Minor design changes were made.
Today I was notified that the device will be named after me.
A Health company is contemplating a 350K grant to mass produce and have sole user rights.
More legal stuff.
Even though I won't have a road named after me, I will never land on the Moon or be placed in the history books for something awesome, I will leave, as a small legacy, something with my name on it that will aid in the treatment of people.
So yay. Just wanted to crow a little bit and was getting tired of the political stuff.
