hi everyone and welcome to the inventors
0:03
Launchpad Network
0:05
I am carmine danesco your host for this
0:08
special edition of the quirky show I
0:10
have with me
0:11
Aisha Moore assumed was just a
0:14
participant at the HSN American Dreams
0:17
Academy here in Tampa the actual Academy
0:22
was awesome it took place at the Lowe's
0:23
Entre Nous Center on the University of
0:26
Tampa ground just on just right on the
0:29
Hillsborough River I mean it's such a
0:30
great location to have a school makes me
0:33
want to go back to college myself but I
0:35
have a ish here and she's up in Chicago
0:38
she's all bunker down cuz it's freezing
0:40
cold up there but she was down here in
0:42
the Sunshine State it was a little cold
0:44
here we'll see how she fared at the
0:48
Academy hey Aisha over there I'm doing
0:52
good am i pronouncing your first name
0:53
right I knew that
0:57
oh yes yeah Wow
1:05
way off that's that's pretty cool I
1:08
won't forget that one that's uh that's
1:10
pretty cool yeah you know and again this
1:14
has been my mistake for first for some
1:16
reason usually it's like a pet peeve for
1:19
me to announce or to speak peoples for
1:22
you know names correctly usually I go
1:24
over that with them but sorry about that
1:26
but that yeah that's that's pretty cool
1:28
the first name so listen you you were
1:34
you were you were at there at the
1:37
Academy and you were kind of there with
1:40
your product you have a product ready to
1:42
go or you and are you in the different
1:44
phases of creating it yeah I'm in the
1:49
beginning phase and actually you know
1:53
coming to this event helped me out a lot
1:55
you know my products called SRC CT and
1:59
it's smart remote cordless charging
2:02
technology and essentially it's a
2:06
wireless and portable charger so what
2:11
you can do is you know a lot of charger
2:13
you can't actually charge from a
2:16
distance yeah thing and I'm talking
2:18
about any distance and the other thing
2:22
is you can streamline all that that
2:25
ability into one remote so you know I
2:28
could be in one room or I can be at the
2:31
airport and let's say I'm on the way
2:32
home and I forgot to charge something
2:34
because I need that device at home for
2:36
something I can charge it on the way
2:37
home Wow
2:39
yeah so take away confusion you know how
2:43
it is you know people go over there to
2:45
the power outlet and they kind of you
2:48
know secure it oh wow that's really cool
2:59
I mean obviously that has happened to
3:01
you so that you you saw the problem the
3:03
pain point you know you know I think on
3:12
average it was reported you know the
3:14
average u.s. household has like five
3:16
connected devices
3:17
I have sick like three or smartphones
3:24
oh right I'm laying on the couch and I
3:29
have some other businesses and they're
3:31
all one has a like direct mobile device
3:35
connected to it and I was trying to
3:37
charge up everything and I'm going to
3:39
tell you I had like eight different
3:42
cords going on it took me 15 minutes to
3:44
get off the couch to go to the restroom
3:50
right I and I was telling him I have a
3:53
mother right now she tripped this is not
3:55
only firk for portable devices the
3:58
eventual goal is to get any device
4:02
object that needs to get plugged in
4:05
change the prototype so that we're not
4:08
using plugs anymore I have a mother
4:11
right now who has two fractured
4:13
vertebrae mom stay with me you know
4:16
lemon bars after you'll get entangled in
4:25
cords
4:27
and split down No so you know the real
4:31
the real birth of this project came from
4:35
it was ridiculous too many cords too
4:37
much keeping up with stuff I'm having to
4:40
get up and go in the back room I get my
4:41
other phone and bring it out here and
4:43
try and streamline everything and it was
4:47
toxic it can be toxic especially now in
4:50
this tech-heavy world I'm you know you
4:52
know how it is all these cords you have
4:54
to deal with just to get set up you know
4:56
it takes a minute and you got to wash
4:59
your hair brush your teeth eat clean
5:02
your house no no I agree I'm looking
5:06
around just my desk I mean you you know
5:08
the viewers can see I got cords
5:10
everywhere it's crazy when you're
5:12
talking about I'm like I wish drives me
5:15
nuts you know right I mean do you have a
5:18
background in this or it's just
5:20
something that just annoys you you're
5:21
like I'm gonna fix it because I went
5:31
looking for it I said wait a minute I
5:33
have a background in physics I've done
5:35
research I'm not saying I'm perfect I'm
5:38
not saying anything you know I'd have to
5:40
work with other people but I do believe
5:42
that sometimes you can't go take a
5:45
direct route there around about weights
5:47
to getting to you know the end result I
5:50
do believe that um and I think that I
5:53
have found it and I think I came up with
5:56
it almost by accident like oh wait a
5:58
minute what if we did this
5:59
more like adapting you know so it's a
6:03
little bit of both that's awesome that's
6:07
great well that's good sometimes it's
6:09
good to experience that and now because
6:13
you're not really deep embedded in the
6:15
electronics industry you see it from a
6:17
different view yes and I really believe
6:21
that you know there are a lot of people
6:23
that come up to me or like wait a minute
6:25
you can't do that they haven't even
6:27
figured out I think scientifically
6:29
they're working or like while I was
6:30
charging for mic and it was a big deal
6:32
because they just figured out how to
6:33
charge for my three feet ya know I mean
6:36
it was like a huge deal well that's
6:39
great but I'm not trying to do it
6:40
way I feel like I have a bridge I don't
6:44
I don't I'm not trying to figure out how
6:46
other people or jump on that I just want
6:49
to get to the end result and I believe
6:51
you have to sometimes dream about that
6:53
and work backwards no no it's great
6:57
the the world is full of products and
7:00
inventions that people said couldn't be
7:02
done so that's what I love about what
7:03
you're doing you know it's like a lot of
7:08
people say to you when they hear this no
7:10
way and in my mind yes way yes
7:13
absolutely I'm kind of free that way
7:17
that way I and I mean it's just that's
7:19
one of the products and I actually have
7:21
a book called power harness I'm living
7:24
no existence and it's about and everyday
7:26
learning how to live that way
7:28
whether you're inventing trying to get
7:31
out of a stagnant area in your life I
7:33
mean they're all the same right and you
7:35
have to have the courage to just find
7:37
out who you are be who you are and do it
7:39
wow that's awesome very good great way
7:43
to look at it I mean really cool so so
7:45
you how did you find out about the
7:48
Academy just stumble upon it someone
7:57
said you know most inventors tend to be
7:59
really good buyers and consumers I
8:07
believe in that Shopping Network
8:10
it has made my life more efficient okay
8:15
I don't even go out and buy as much as I
8:19
used to
8:20
why I can run my businesses and shop
8:24
from my TV or online that's right
8:35
so then I started seeing you know HSN
8:39
would start advertising hey American
8:41
Dreams I said wait a minute wait a
8:42
minute what's going on you know I said
8:45
I'm gonna I'm gonna go for it
8:47
awesome and when I you know it's a
8:50
platform to make things happen is it
8:54
I mean it's one of the best platforms
8:56
yeah right they see tons of stuff all
8:59
the time and then for them to take their
9:01
time and do this I don't think a lot of
9:05
people know what it takes to to utilize
9:08
your energy to put something together
9:12
and help other people to get there hmm
9:15
you know the respect level for energy
9:18
needs to be an all-time high for this
9:20
whole event you know because a lot of
9:24
people won't do it so I saw that oh I'm
9:28
gonna submit I was flipping out I said
9:30
oh I have to do this and it worked out
9:34
so far I'm very least I have tons of
9:37
information oh yeah no there's no loss
9:40
there's no loss in it and you're exactly
9:42
right I mean you know with the
9:44
University of Tampa one of the top
9:46
entrepreneurial schools put that
9:48
curriculum together so you know now you
9:50
have a highly ranked College putting a
9:53
quick them together
9:54
yeah I've HSN as you said I mean these
9:56
guys are experts in taking products the
9:58
market I mean there's really you know
10:01
there's not so many people that are
10:02
better they've been doing this for so
10:03
long and then quirky backing them with
10:05
product development and manufacturing
10:07
and different things I mean it was kind
10:10
of like a perfect storm for any inventor
10:12
I was like you know I was listening in
10:14
here and there but you know we were in
10:16
the back but I just was looking I was
10:18
looking at the speakers that they were
10:19
bringing in and I wasn't all myself that
10:22
they got all of those speakers in the
10:23
room I mean I knew most of the guys but
10:25
I was just so surprised that they got
10:27
them all at the same time it was a
10:32
little touching I know what it is to
10:35
exert energy I'm you know I'm a stickler
10:38
about how I exert my energy yeah those
10:42
experts to come out and say everything
10:44
they did I don't think people understand
10:47
the value of what they did I I can't I
10:53
don't have the words and then on top of
10:56
it I think about probably ten years ago
10:59
I was living somewhere else and I
11:01
remember purchasing something on HSN
11:04
with my remote control
11:07
this is dangerous I said I and it says
11:12
you know press okay are you kidding me
11:16
so between that and then learning about
11:19
quirky a lot of these things you don't
11:21
know about you're right I mean you know
11:24
how are you supposed to figure you know
11:27
you go online and then they give you
11:28
these resources I couldn't believe it
11:31
the paperwork they had with the
11:32
resources of where you could go yeah and
11:35
at the very least you can compare other
11:40
companies that do the same thing it was
11:44
just incredible and they're like I said
11:49
HSN I mean I've been perching I can show
11:51
you stuff right now I'm here well I
11:53
don't show you the other side market
12:02
works yeah
12:04
no it's it's really great I and I'm glad
12:06
you got a good takeaway from it what
12:08
what is one of the biggest things like
12:10
what did you take away that you're like
12:12
I have to do this right now
12:13
like like what's one of the biggest
12:14
takeaways that you got physical that's
12:23
what I'm interested now and you know I
12:25
look up this morning and after I read
12:28
across the street and got my little fuel
12:30
and breakfast and stuff came back I did
12:33
a little preparing making making sure
12:35
things are right I said you know after I
12:37
do this you know it's time to start
12:39
submitting to you know funny some
12:41
manufacturers and moving forward nothing
12:45
I'm confident
12:46
yeah I'm not perfect I don't expect
12:49
things to just be like you know a skip
12:52
but at least I can go in there knowing
12:56
what I need to do what to expect what
12:59
conversation you know the negotiations
13:02
I'm not really concerned with that I you
13:06
know I was thinking the other day they
13:07
should have negotiation classes in
13:08
school like like it's like that and like
13:14
networking classes you know what I mean
13:17
but but at the end of the day that meant
13:21
fracturing that was that was the big
13:23
doozy and then when I learned about
13:26
since my product is electrical all the
13:30
stipulations oh yeah the certifications
13:34
on it big yeah completely fair but whoa
13:40
and when you go down that list cost to
13:45
manufacture you know if you want to go
13:47
out of the country if you want to be in
13:49
in the car you know my mom dropped yeah
13:53
so it made my decision about the manner
13:56
in which I was gonna move forward easier
13:58
correct and this can be a little
14:01
complicated in a sense because it's
14:03
somewhat new I mean like you know house
14:06
impure like all my product you really
14:08
can't find it mine you really can't it's
14:11
something so simple but it could really
14:14
help a lot know exactly what the good
14:17
part about is now you are armed with
14:19
information which is so important
14:21
because you're only gonna make missteps
14:23
you're always gonna you know go the
14:25
wrong step or or pivot but at least now
14:27
you know if something does happen or you
14:30
run into this you hat you're armed with
14:31
that information education knowledge is
14:33
key to be able to get to move this
14:35
forward you miss something in their life
14:53
you know so you know at the end of the
14:58
day I don't I don't think there's a word
15:01
really to put on and I mean literally I
15:03
came back feeling like a different
15:05
person a different person so now I'm
15:14
super excited that's well that's awesome
15:20
how did you how do you think you did at
15:21
the pitch the pitch park like you walk
15:31
in there you're just like you're gonna
15:34
be
15:34
nervous there's nothing I mean some
15:36
people are good I'm I was just it was
15:40
nervous but I could still talk and stuff
15:42
you know it was just a little jittery
15:44
but I was nervous you know because this
15:46
is something you've been working on for
15:48
so long yeah this is kind of like I
15:51
don't want to say that baby cuz but you
15:54
really want it to you you want to convey
15:57
to them how you work it really can work
15:59
right it's important to you it came out
16:02
of a place that you know is special for
16:06
you each individual is different you
16:07
walk in there and you so bad for me it
16:10
wasn't even so much the information it's
16:11
just I want to convey how this is really
16:14
innovative how we cannot just kind of
16:16
regurgitate the state the same
16:18
technological stuff I don't want to see
16:21
another smartphone I want to see the
16:23
next step
16:24
do you know what I mean I want to see
16:26
the future something that's just the
16:28
next step and I just think we're stuck
16:30
you know stuff where we are in society
16:31
with that right now but I'm right with
16:38
you the pitched is always been tough I
16:41
think for almost everybody even if they
16:42
make it seem like they're rare relax
16:44
it's a very emotional very important
16:47
couple minutes so you all you know
16:49
you're it's kind of good to be a little
16:50
nervous because it kind of wakes you up
16:52
and get you going but I think everyone
16:54
is you know some people don't show it as
16:56
much some people do but the pitch just
16:59
that word just instills fear in me so
17:12
I'll do it in two little models I made
17:13
really quickly I want to give you this
17:16
kind of fun artistic you know expression
17:20
that kind of wakes people up I mean I'm
17:21
sure is not ours and I was just hoping
17:27
that they can get a little bit of my
17:29
personality in there because believe it
17:31
or not that's a huge part of the whole
17:33
thing you know I think no it is you 100%
17:38
you're exactly right so all right good
17:41
well listen I think that it's awesome I
17:43
love the idea I'm glad that you're
17:45
moving it forward and you got some good
17:47
Meishan from the academy you know that's
17:50
what it's there for
17:50
and you know I've talked to a bunch of
17:54
people from the Academy that
17:57
participated and they all had such great
17:59
things to say they all they've all
18:01
learned so much and and it's so nice to
18:04
know that you know what they're doing is
18:06
working I never thought you know it's
18:12
funny because I missed the Washington DC
18:15
oh yeah
18:16
I missed that one it was funny I turned
18:18
on and I'm like and that was for a
18:20
reason cuz I wasn't prepared enough I
18:22
still had some things I had to learn you
18:25
know but this time so when I came this
18:28
time I said this time I don't care if my
18:32
hand is hanging off let me tell you I
18:36
woke up that morning I never get sick my
18:42
stomach is like in knots couldn't eat I
18:44
was bent over I go to the front desk
18:47
like can you help me it was like 20
18:54
minutes for me to walk in went away
18:56
Wow I'm we will see there you go awesome
19:03
[Laughter]
19:14
