Portalis: 8 Channel Video Controller System

Picture
Control rooms, network operations centers, and command & control units all suffer from a similar and intense pain: their operators must source data from multiple, incompatible operating systems in order to make decisions. The risk of mistakes is enormous. Portalis solves this problem by giving operators the ability to 'Monitor and control up to eight different systems from a single Integrated Workstation.' Working in conjunction with Design Engine Inc., our engineers performed the main chassis design, which was challenged by the need to pack an incredible amount of electronics into a single 3U rack module. System cooling and modularity was a significant factor guiding many of the design considerations. Our staff also provided the Industrial Design for the chassis bezel and other critical components. The physical prototyping was all done using local rapid prototyping, sheet metal, and machine shops. This product is available from portalis, LC,

AudioShare: Smart Digital Intercom and Music System

Picture
The AudioShare 201 is a second generation, fully integrated digitally networked, peer-to-peer intercom, music and home control system. This project required incorporating state-of-the-art electronics into a new modern look and feel. Our Engineers completed the Mechanical Design, plastic injection mold development, and 3D Rapid Prototyping. The physical prototype work was performed in Utah and the injection molding was done in China.

Lazerbrite - Multi-Function Flashlight: Multi-Mode Waterproof Specialized Flashlight

Picture
Lazerbrite by Tactical Lighting Solutions, is a patented specialized multi-function flashlight primarily used by the USA military. This is a cost effective replacement for the common chemical glow-stick that you can actually "turn off" when you need to. Glow-sticks are once-on always-on for the next 8 hours. Lazerbrite can be turned on and off for about 4 months on one set of batteries. LazerbriteÒ provides tactical lighting capabilities and location marking functionality. Our engineers did all the mechanical/electrical engineering and system integration for this product line. We also designed and built a number of performance test fixtures, assembly tooling, and automation equipment used for waterproof and life cycle testing. We also produced production manufacturing tools used for component manufacture and final assembly. Along with the basic light head, we also designed a number of accessory products including a helmet clip system, specialty lenses, landing zone marking stake kits, connector tubes, and magnetic bases.

EyeShields: Binocular Accessories

Picture
We designed and manufactured a full line of binocular and spotting scope accessories for commercial retail and military optics. The requirement of designing a universal product that would comfortably fit ALL human face anatomies and ALL popular brands of binoculars offered a significant design challenge. This goal was ultimately achieved and the patented product is now sold as EyeShieldsâ in many sporting good stores across the country. The design and prototype development was performed in Utah and the production injection molding is done in Kentucky.
To increase perceived value, we packaged the product in a high-end metal tin box neatly placed in a felt covered thermoformed tray. The packaging is produced by our partner supplier in China. Vince Warner, the president of Rocky Mountain Product Development, is the co-inventor and president of the company that produces this product. This product is available now at http://www.fieldopticsresearch.com
You can also view a TV commercial on Youtube. On Vince Warner's drawing board is a revolutionary new optics cleaning kit and a state-of-the-art trail cam with uniquely developed IP. Watch Video Video 2

Grate Lift: Window-well Grate Cover Lifting Mechanism

Picture
The Grate Liftis a solution to a problem that, until now, had no viable commercially option available. In the case of a fire and emergency egress is required through a window-well equipped with a heavy grate window-well cover, most individuals would be incapable of lifting the grate up and away and allow a person to climb out. Also, removing the grate from the outside for cleaning and other reasons is very awkward. The Grate Lift easily attaches to the side of the window-well and then to the grate cover. Then, pulling the handle of the spring-assisted lifting mechanism with less than 7 lbs force, the grate is easily raised to a safe height allowing any aged person to escape. We designed and developed this patent pending product as an in-house invention. We just completed the product development phase and are now developing packaging and marketing materials in preparation for full production launch. This product was developed using manufacturers in Utah and will be mass-produced in China.
The Grate Lift sells for about $80.00 through big box hardware stores
and is available now through Safer Home LLC, www.saferhome.com.
Vince Warner is the co-inventor of this product. Watch Video Video 2

Oxy-Reel: Medical Oxygen, Remote Controlled, Hose Management System

Picture
Our company designed and developed this product for I2I, Inc. The product allows patients on supplemental oxygen to retrieve, via wireless remote control, all the extra and unwanted oxygen hose that can develop around a patients feet in their home or hospital room. The device allows for zero resistance "out-spooling" and wireless remote control "take-up". Oxy-Reel helps prevent the user and others from tripping or stumbling on the excess hose that can pile up around the users feet. We performed the Industrial Design, Mechanical Design, electronic integration, PCB layout, and prototype development of this product. We are currently in the physical prototype and production component sourcing phase.
These will be available soon from www.oxy-reel.com

ThermaSpin: Thermally Actuated Convection Oven Turntable

Picture
Microwaves have turntables, commercial bakeries use turntables, why not residential ovens? Because until now there was no good way to build a turntable for an oven that can reach 500 degrees. ThermaSpin is patent pending technology, invented by our President, Vince Warner, that is activated by the ambient heat within the oven itself. By use of the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of dissimilar metals, linear motion is translated into rotary motion which provides 2-3 rotations of the platter in a typical 30 minute cooking cycle. This product is used for cooking short-cycle food items such as breads, cookies, pizza and other items that are susceptible to ovens with uneven cooking characteristics that "burn in the back and are raw in the front". Market research has shown that 1/3 of all ovens sold in the USA have uneven cooking characteristics.
This product is in the physical prototype and material selection phase.
