Have you thought you had a great idea for a new invention, but couldn’t get any farther than that?
A local man said his invention could change the game in a big way, when it comes to connecting electrical wires.
These days if you want to connect two pieces of wire, you have to crimp them together.
Twin Falls businessman Mark Melni thought there had to be a better way.
He based his idea for an electrical connector on the 4,000 year old Chinese finger trap.
“This invention is a next step invention. It changes everything. If you get on the internet and take a look at crimps and other types of connectors, you’ll quickly recognize what we’re talking about. If you were to imagine going from buttons to the zipper, and from the zipper to Velcro, these are next step inventions,” said Mark Melni, Inventor.
