About this project

Bio:  I'm a retired Science teacher from the Neshaminy School District in Langhorne, PA.  I've presented new inventions and technologies at several national conferences throughout the USA over the years including The Smart Fabrics Conference in Washington, DC, The Flexible Display Conferences in Phoenix, AZ and others.  Most recently I won an Honorable Mention from NASA for inventing a technology enabling visual ID from a distance.

Plan:  To manufacture and distribute PhotoFlyer flexible flying discs throughout the USA hiring employees locally. 

First needed:  Ring Molds for bonding silicon to the cotton-based fabric, perf-cut cardboard honeycomb structure ironing platform, package header, and circular cardboard ironing platform enabling the production of 4000 units per month ($5000)

Stock inventory material to produce first 4000 units (Ink Jet Transfer paper, Silicon, Fabric, Cardboard stiffener, perforated template page, instructions, packaging  ($16,000)

Employees (Made in USA), rental space & utilities for two months to get started plus shipping estimate for 2400 pledge units ($7000)     TOTAL:  $28,000

Product "Pledge" shipments begin two months following receiving revenue (January 2014). Pledges will receive awards prior to promotional campaign to begin distribution.

Risks and challenges

Although a patent application has been filed, there is the possibility that a company may copy and attempt to distribute this product without regard to legal implications. (I have a very good attorney firm to handle such issues.)

The package printer, silicon supplier, or other component suppliers used may go out of business. (There are no specialized parts to this kit that cannot be made by other USA companies).

We have several people including family, veterans, and retirees who are willing to work with us to launch this project in case unforeseen circumstances arise.
