Big Ideas Do Pay Off

Evan Savar has been inventing for as long as he can remember. At the age of 21, he has already found some success with a trophy picture stand, a talking gift wrap bow and a silicone flat-screen TV effect, reports Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Inventions, he said, just come to him. Take his latest one — the Digital Photo Trophy. His invention is the box-like base that can be programmed to show a stream of digital photos, as many as 100 in a loop, great for team shots and those special moments on the field or court.

The idea for that one also came from necessity.

As a youngster, Savar enrolled in tennis camp, played basketball and baseball and was on the volleyball and soccer teams at Palo Verde High School. With each one, he got a trophy. They began filling up his bedroom.

“They all kind of looked the same, and I couldn’t remember (which was for which),” he said. “I thought, “There has to be a better way.’ ”

Savar’s mother, Cindy Fox, said her son always has had a mind that looks for solutions. When his older brother Hal, a musician, was playing summer gigs on an aluminum stage in 115-degree heat, Evan borrowed an idea from marathon runners. He rigged a backpack with a water reservoir and ran a sipping tube around it.

Her garage, she said, is filled with his “dinosaurs” — his not-quite-ready-for-prime-time inventions.

“He has one of the three bays,” she said. “His car has to be parked outside because of all his stuff.”
