Futurist Donald Spector donates invention to College
US Patent # 9,367,285 which was issued on Tuesday in New York creates a world of life-size Christmas Trees, Waterfalls and Zoos…without glasses…at the push of a button on a smartphone.
This dramatic technology was donated by Donald Spector, Chairman of New York College of Health Professions, to the College under the IP policy of the College, and allows for audio and visual streaming of Internet sites and playlists to be transformed into Holograms that are indistinguishable from reality.
Mr. Spector explains, “I grew up in reality, it wasn’t that great. Virtual reality lets you do anything, anytime and in many cases is indistinguishable from the ‘Real Thing’. An example is in buildings, homes and venues have Christmas Trees, which are short lived and a potential fire hazard which have to be discarded in a few weeks. Through this technology, a full size Christmas Tree, better than anything you’ve seen before, appears with lights, sound and decorations that move with the press of a button.
“Even Fireworks can come right at you with sound and light but no danger of fire. Waterfalls, bird sanctuaries, even volcanoes can erupt in your living room. Virtual reality will not be limited to glasses and gaming. Everything you see will be either real or surreal and there will be no difference unless you touch them.”
Already throughout the world there are virtual zoos and 7D demonstrations. The new generation will see musicians, athletes, celebrities, alive or dead appearing live. It is a limitless world, which Spector says will take a giant step forward in the next couple of years. Disabled people will be able to experience sports, as will the elderly and infirmed. Spector plans on adding virtually reality to Veterans Hospitals, assisted Living facilities, and to the general public in apartments within the next 18 months.
Lisa Pamintuan, President of New York College says “We are excited about moving forward in many areas of the patent portfolio of Chairman Spector.” She notes that Spector has opened up Billion Dollar industries in the past, including the first patents for location based advertising and one of the first Super Apps, the first electronic Fragrancer, for which Bristol Myers Squibb set up a special division, the first exerciser with hydraulics called the MuscleWorker, and hundreds of consumer products for brands as diverse as hyperbaric seed germination to Barbie and World Wrestling Federation toys.
“Currently the College is developing textiles that will increase performance, skin applications which will monitor Biometrics, bandages which will reduce bacterial growth, UV LED lighting to limit the spread of super bacteria, and a host of other products. Spector’s inventions and vision has propelled New York College from a small non-profit into a world leader in technologies for the future,” added Pamintuan.
She continues, “We are in discussions with billionaire entrepreneurs, major companies throughout the world, top universities and manufacturers to get our products to market quickly. 3D printing, for which Spector holds important patents, has accelerated the speed of modeling and proof of concept. We are excited about the future as most of the royalty income will benefit the College, which unlike other Colleges that are suffering from declining enrollment is being revitalized by the intangible and tangible assets of the future.” – USNwewswire
