Sam Asano's Let's Invent: Knowing what you don't know is key
In the experiment conducted at the shooting range, we were able to discover the critical incident angle of a projectile. An incoming projectile with an incident angle larger than the critical would pierce through the shield, while the narrower incident angle would cause the projectile to bounce off the shield. That is a fundamental purpose of this trial. Two types of test bullets were used on each angle: one smaller with .223 55 grains, and one larger with .308 110 grains.
But my intuition tells me that 11 gauge (1/8") plate is just too heavy as a shield. Now I am standing at my knowledge boundary beyond which darkness prevails. I know little about material science and the technology of sandwiching various materials to strengthen the plate while simultaneously lightening the weight.
Patent 1.01 Dealing with naysayers
Who needs it?
You are wasting time and money.
That's been done before.
These naysays are hurtful, and often kill your invention before it sees daylight. You must notice that the first four naysays are not based on actual knowledge and are nothing but irresponsible wisecracks. Young inexperienced inventors often succumb to these negative comments and quit pressing their inventions forward. The fifth comment probably is based on some half-baked knowledge without in-depth search, and is indeed very poisonous to inventors.
Shintaro (Sam) Asano of New Castle, who speaks and writes English as a second language, was named by MIT in 2011 as one of the 10 most influential inventors of the 20th century who improved our life. He is a businessman and an inventor in the field of electronics and mechanical systems, who is credited as the original inventor of today's portable fax machine. He also developed a data tablet used in the retail point of sale to capture customer signatures when credit cards are used. Write to him at email@example.com.
