San Jose, CA
|Description:||Being a engineer at Silicon Valley for more than a decade, worked and still working on interesting projects.|
I had jointly created the first US made CD-ROM drive design;
Created VCD/DVD player at front of tide;
Worked at ReplayTV (like Tivo);
Worked at Cisco…
Then I thought it’s time to challenge myself and see if I can invent something new, something useful for mankind, I have been thinking like a inventor since.
I filed couple of patent applications, few got granted, a few still pending. And I try to put them into use. That’s why I am here, to fulfill my latest invention: U-Star.
U-Star uses new technology to make ordinary visitors to parks and resorts the star of their own video. A customer pays a fee, and then wears a small device as they enjoy their day. Wherever they go, numerous cameras will capture their activities like they are the stars.
When they leave the park, they return the device and few days later; receive a well edited souvenir DVD video, that features themselves, in mail. People can enjoy their day without the worry of managing their own tripods, cameras, battery packs, carry bags, and other burdens. They simply have fun, enjoy themselves, and know that even unplanned moments can be included in a treasured memory disk.
We need $2.5 million in funding to get to the point where the company is self-sustaining. This should happen in the middle of our second year. Right now, we`re seeking $1 million of initial funding in exchange for a 20% ownership stake in the company. If we hit our numbers, we expect to be able to go IPO within 5 years.
I pray everday this will become true.
