Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
According to PR Newsire, a Long Island special education teacher has revolutionized big-league play-calling with BoomGuard, a brilliantly simple device that shields coaches’ mouths from potential lip-readers.
Inventor Ramone Ward remembers the autumn Sunday in 2005 when it came to him: for all those NFL coaches holding laminated play cards over their mouths and running from cameras to protect their secrets, there had to be a better way. “Someone was going to make a lot of money,” he says. “And I decided that was going to be me.”
Less than five years later, Ward’s award-winning BoomGuard device is building a steady following in multiple professional and high school sports, including auto racing and football.
BoomGuard is constructed from a durable and flexible plastic called elastomer. It comes in a variety of colors and affixes to virtually any communications headset with a Universal Belt Attachment. The device won the Telecommunications Category silver medal at the 2008 INPEX Invention Convention, the country’s largest annual invention exposition, and has even provided a benefit its inventor didn’t initially intend: advertising.
