Better Living Through Inventing

It is possible and desirable and fun to invent and create technologies that help our world. Have you ever wanted to shut off a TV that was annoying you in a public place? My extraordinarily popular invention, TV-B-Gone has made it fun to turn off TVs in restaurants, pubs, airports...

Using my invention TV-B-Gone as a demonstration, I'll talk about the following interrelated topics: the inventing process, technical details about how TV-B-Gone works, how to have fun changing the world, using cool inventions as a fabulous way to be an effective media-whore, as well as some possibilities for living a fulfilling existence on our modern world.

And I'll have plenty of TV-B-Gone remotes with me.
