For production of an educational,
informative and entertaining, made for television, series titled: THE PATENTS PENDING SHOW™. From the platform of the show, promote energy efficient ecologically friendly products and lifestyles.
The Patents Pending Show(PPS) evolved
from my long time desire to live a more self-sufficient environmentally friendly life. When I was a young child a neighbor
once told me that if I wanted to have a good life and become rich, all I had to do was invent the next Frisbee ™ or
Hoola Hoop™. I never forgot that thought. Since my adolescence I have sought to achieve a rural alternative lifestyle. I thought such a life style
would give me independence, pride, freedom and provide a meaning in life superior to that of an average worker enslaved by
money. I believed it was more efficient, cheaper and more rewarding to provide
most of my needs through my own labor. Back in the mid ‘70s when I was
first introduced to the Whole Earth Catalog, I was excited to find that others had similar desires. Since the mid ‘70s the earth’s human population has increased from about 4 billion to over
6 billion and each individual’s desire to consume has also increased. While
the Earth is suffering from the impact of our species, the Whole Earth, catalog/ magazine concept is still around. Published by Point Foundation, Whole Earth is the successor of the Whole Earth Catalog, first published
in 1968 by Stewart Brand, http://www.wholeearthmag.com/about.html. By 1980 I had began to make prototypes of windmills and other alternate
energy devises such as a parabolic trough solar collector. I lived off the grid
during the 90’s where it was essential to explore and use energy alternatives to maintain a modern life style. By the mid ‘90s I began to document some of my progress though photo and video
footage. It was some time in 2002 when I first became attracted to the thought
of developing my invention endeavors into an educational yet comical TV Show.
It is around that “new millennium”
time when I noticed the so-called ‘reality TV’ concept was becoming popular.
It would be hard to debate the statement that the Survivor and Junk Yard Warriors shows have little if anything to
do with reality. Those type shows illustrated to me that there is a vacuum when
it comes to the successful combination of educational and entertaining programming.
I was also familiar with The Red Green Show at that time. While most of Green’s skits are more entertaining then
educational, meaning that in the real world there are only so many uses for duct tape, I enjoy the light and setting of the
show. Finally in his January 31, 2006 State of the Union speech; even the
silver spoon, oil man, President George W. Bush mentioned the need for energy conservation and alternate energy development.
There is a niche, which The Patents Pending show can fill like no other.
The PPS will become a series,
which will document and illustrate all phases of the invention process. The first
few episodes will center on my own inventive efforts. The show will be educational,
entertaining and sometimes even comical. If the show achieves a level of interest
and longevity it may evolve beyond my own efforts into a show that seeks out inventors of alternate energy devices and documents
their stories. Even if such topics are usually presented in a serious manner, my vision of PPS would add some comedy to the
chore of inventing and bringing eco-friendly products to the marketplace.
A typical show will consist of scenes
and conversation involving concept, design, patent process, prototype manufacturing, marketing and promotion of the products
There will be the ongoing optimistic
versus pessimistic dialog. Usually the inventor has to defend and explain his
works to an antagonistic nay-sayer who believes the inventor’s efforts are a useless pipe dream and total waste of time. There is the potential for real and staged action scenes during most all of the focus
themes. None of the shows that could be considered the competition to PPS have
been able to wear out the use of skits involving ‘don’t attempt this at home’!
Success and popularity will be accompanied
by spin offs such as a movie version of the show. Some of the products featured
on the show may be manufactured locally and marketed to end consumers creating high pay manufacturing jobs for people in the
The Patents Pending Show series
episodes will start with a typical show introduction including scrolling title text and music. Then the lead person (inventor)
will be introduced working on one of the phases of development of their product. Right
now I’m sitting on the computer as I often do. My girlfriend is usually sympathetic and supportive but sometimes she
just cannot understand how or why I spend so much time in front of this computer. Dialog
may be similar to her saying “get out from in front of that computer right now Ken. You ran out of unemployment and
you better get up off your ass and go look for a real job”. I could get
mad and walk out heading for a tavern or a library where I meet a third person and begin explaining my product and/or efforts
to make it real. That person will be negative, in most cases an echo of the significant
other’s disbelieve to the point of being antagonistic. The inventor will
be forced into defending and explaining that his cup is already half full even if he has yet to receive even an iota of compensation
for his work.
In his/my determination I
may go to a pawnshop to pawn something to raise money to rent a machine shop to manufacture parts for the prototype. Then I head to the machine shop where the owner doubts my experience but eventually
lets me in. Then being overwhelmed with work I recruit helpers in Tom Sawyer fence painting style. I could be machining a part of which I need multiple pieces while explaining the process to the prospective
Episodic descriptions of the
series when first considered sound like an oxymoron. Each episode will have aspects
of a beginning and end within the episode. Many of the episodes will also have
a “To be continued” overtone so important to a series that wants to attract and keep a television audience. In other words an episode may include a review of the patent application I just finished
drafting, writing up an IOU, then robbing my girlfriend’s piggy bank for the application fee. That episode will end
with a scene at the post office when I drop the envelope into the box. It takes money to make money and the good inventor
knows he will be able to pay her back. More toward my reality I worked trades
jobs to get money to spend on inventing. So while each episode has an endpoint,
the story line of the product of the day is ongoing. The individual product ideas
will involve several episodes and the completion of those connected episodes will end in ways that reflect the actual outcome
of the work on that product. If the show were to mirror reality, where most ideas
patented or otherwise end up never making it to the market, the ending episode of product that turns out to be a useless widget
would end with enactments of, “Back to the drawing board” or “It is a good thing you kept your day job”.
Some if not most of the products,
which will be the chosen subject of one or more episodes, would require amounts of money outside of the realm of this proposal
to bring into full working industries and selling products to end users. We could
debate outsourcing to China and that whole debacle. Many shows will only
involve the design and workings of micro versions only intended to prove or disprove the feasibility of the technology. In other words, we at PPS will not reinvent the wheel or even the Space Shuttle, we will explore alternative energy sources and sustainable lifestyles. Below are some of the ideas for products I would consider featuring on PPS.
there will be many models including pedal assisted and non-pedal motor only models.
There will be models with suspension, street and off road models. The
first model will be a kit, which adapts to most non-suspension mountain bikes. Specific
design characteristics, which make my design superior to other designs, will not be discussed until the interested persons
sign a nondisclosure agreement of some sort. If this project receives funding
soon, I am capable of producing at least 10 production prototype bikes by September
Although I’m open
to suggestions and alternatives, I believe I am most prepared to produce the first episode around the electric bicycle, which
I call the Electric Horse™. The prototype Electric Horse featured in the demonstrational DVD included as sample work
proves the concept works. A battery powered electric bike can be a useful, economical, ecological, short-range transportation
vehicle. While this prototype bike performs well, it is an ugly ducking. I have
designs for an even more efficient, faster and much better looking bike. Since I have a plan and it is my most current project,
I believe the Electric Horse ™ would be a good project to be the feature of the first few episodes.
Ultra Light Electric
Automobile (ULEA): In my opinion the history of electric vehicles is plagued
with the concept that they must look and act like current fossil fuel consuming vehicles.
Diminishing fuel supplies and increased cost should force transportation of goods off the highways and back to the
rail system. This factor will help convince people that they do not need the
false security of several tons of dead weight in their automobiles as a safety factor in case of an accident. Furthermore many people are willing to ride motorcycles, which expose the rider in great bodily harm in
an accident with another vehicle or a singe vehicle accident for that matter. It
is possible to make an electric or internal combustion engine vehicle with acceptable
acceleration and handling weighing as little as 500 lbs.
Lighter Than Air
Surveillance Vehicle (LTASV): I have plans for a miniature craft that can
carry cameras and sensors for military, governmental and commercial use. The
original plan was for the design of a sort of two-passenger blimp, which could be used recreationally. The drone and the manned
versions could both be used for nature observation quietly and therefore superior to the way helicopters are now used. Nondisclosure agreement necessary to receive design specifics for this project.
Solar Powered Refrigeration/AC
unit: This product is illustrated on the PPS archive episode DVD attached.
Once the prototype is built and tested for output performance it could be possible that a large commercial unit is economically
feasible. There is also a still picture of an earlier prototype of the solar
powered refrigeration unit attached below. If this project were used in the series, it could be centered around building a
devise that keeps beer cold from the heat of the sun.
to Fuel Conversion: If you mix human urine and dryer lint then heat it to about 98.6 deg. F, you are going to get a lot
of ammonia gas being produced. Ammonia is an industrial chemical that is a precursor to acetylene and other products. If you have smelled used baby diapers you know a lot of Ammonia is produced. While ammonia gas does burn, in my opinion even under ideal conditions, I really don’t
believe this one is viable. As a show theme, we could attempt to recruit volunteer
urine donors. Then the processing of it all could get quite stinky. There is something to what I am saying. I do not know how
many of the men folk around here have peed directly on a camp fire, but doing so makes the fire flare up with a yellow smelly
smoke. Raw urine almost burns!
business and community plastic shredder: Some communities require residents
to buy marked garbage bags to pay for processing of garbage and limit the amount of garbage going to landfills. Plastics can be shredded, recycled and then extruded or formed into useful products. Paper shredding technology
has been made economically reasonable. I have experimented with using a paper shredder to shred plastic bags with some success. I believe micro residential and small business plastic bag and bottle shredders could
be designed, produced and sold to help reduce those items landfill impact, save in transport costs of recycling and encourage
the production of items being produced from such plastics.
Heating and Cooling System: Will use two shallow non-potable wells 20 ft.
and circulate that water through a heat exchanger and or a heat pump/refrigeration unit. In the summer cool water could be
circulated through a radiator with a fan to cool residential space with much less energy than conventional air conditioners.
In cold winter months the geothermal configuration of heat pump use could provide space heat at an energy use rate below that
of conventional heat pumps and fuel burning.
Each human at one time in life has had experienced the wrong combination
of food and bacteria in the stomach and intestines resulting in a buildup of gas where you feel like you are about to explode. We human mammals are not very efficient burners of the food we eat and most of the
energy in our food remains in the feces. Certain bacteria could be added to our human manure to produce methane, which is
the main ingredient of natural gas.
I’ve heard that
some Asian communities use human manure on vegetable gardens and also to produce methane.
Automobiles can be run off of methane gas. This is a subject that would
make a great episode for the Patents Pending TV series. It may also be an experiment
that can be undertaken to find maximum yield of usable fuels and compounds that can be obtained from human waste. Louis Pasture’s invention of the gooseneck to make a barrier between human wastes stored in the septic
system and our living space was quite ingenious and certainly saved humans from the spread of infectious disease when we had
a limited understanding of disease. In today’s society I don’t believe
it is necessary or prudent to flush 5 gallons of water we could drink down the toilet every time we have to urinate or defecate. The waste of energy to pump water and the later use of energy to purify the water
mixed with human excrements are compounding factors adding to the deficit of not utilizing the energy contained in these excrements.
Wood waste utilization: In rural areas where family residences heat with wood already, some of that energy
could be turned into electricity with a boiler, steam engine and generator configuration.
I have a design for just such a unit, which is discussed in the attached Archives segment of the DVD. Rural residents increasing the efficiency of wood and bio-fuels use can significantly reduce the use of
fossil fuels on a national level.
Portable Wood Slash
Pile to Electricity Conversion Processor: One tractor and trailer would haul
the transformers, one would haul the boiler and genset. The generation would
take place near a highline and a fiberglass non conductive boom extension device will hook up to the highline. Short haul trucks and front end loaders would be used to transport the wood fuel (slash piles) to the portable
electric generation plant.
Wood to bio-fuel
conversion: I would like to build a pilot plant that combines the use of
two processes to produce a blended bio-fuel capable of replacing gasoline. A
recently developed genetically modified microorganism can be used to digest sawdust and produce ethanol. A liquor can be produced from destructive distillation of wood that can be burned in a modified diesel
engine. I believe the use of these substances through mixture and maybe chemical
cracking or reaction will produce a liquid fuel near enough to gasoline that it can be burned in automobiles designed to burn
gasoline with little or no modification. This part of the series
will “in fiction” have a secret garage where the fuel is made. Distillation
of ethanol, even if it is made as a fuel and not for consumption, requires a BATF permit which we will get. In the show the
ethanol production will be portrayed as if done in a secret clandestine operation.
The ruff version demonstration DVD
included with this proposal took most of the summer of 2005 to produce. As with
most things people do in our modern society, money is a factor. I had to work, live and operate on an inferior shoestring
budget to produce the low quality demo’ show. At minimum, with higher definition
television broadcasting quality equipment, I could film and edit footage of a reenactment of the design and production of
the Electric Horse™ as it exists, and edit it by August of this 2006. I
have designs for a more high tech cool looking bike with even better performance qualities.
If funding were provided for the improved production prototype I’m sure I could build that and produce several
episodes of the show this coming summer.
I would be much happier with
a budget that would allow work on multiple episodes beginning now and through this summer to prepare for the Patents Pending
series airings beginning this fall. If the sky were the limit, I would have a
Patent’s Pending Show prototype production facility built and in use by mid summer.
If the funds were available, we at the PPS studio would be working on several episodes simultaneously this summer. The happiest goal I could imagine in the progress of the show would be the dream of
owning or even running a prototyping workspace, home office by 2008.
Yes it would be applicable and advantageous
for The Patents Pending Show to also have a web site. It will take only a season
or two to go through the majority of my show and product ideas listed above. A
web site could be used to solicit for inventors and their products to be featured on future PPS episodes. The site could contain
links to sites where products featured in past shows are available for purchase. Web site builders and their companies are
highly competitive and visible. If PPS is successful and generates money for
the construction of a web site, all as we have to do is ask for bids from reputable companies and individuals.
Writing a budget for a project like
this for me is similar to a kid in a candy store. To have the equipment and resources
to produce the PSS would be like a dream. When I awake form the dream and come
down to reality, to describe a bare bones minimum budget containing just what is necessary to record some professional footage
to be edited into one or two episodes, may be a real place to start. Then
in an optimistic light, the sky is the limit to this project as chances are it can be developed into a business with multimillion-dollar
annual gross income. Then to form a wish list containing the most liberal items,
equipment and personnel then introduce a spreadsheet style form with maximum and minimum columns and totals:

Screen Actors Guild Independent
Producers Ultra Low Budget Letter Agreement, states that all actors other than stunt men get a hundred dollars a day plus
benefits. The contract by the name above gives an idea of the going prices for labor in movie and for television low budget
start ups. I’ll work for $10/hour or a salary of $1600(negotiable) per
month on this project and be totally happy. I’d work for minimum wage until the grant proposals are completed and there
is money coming in to justify paying me what an average producer who works for a non-profit entity makes.
As with any thing else, as
the business grows the greater salaries will grow within the realm and reason of the regulations of a non-profit entity. Using some of the new and sophisticated digital media and editing equipment enables
high quality low cost production in reach. It is also within my philosophy that
local people could be educated and employed during this production.
Key Personnel (Required)
While I’m not a seasoned television
producer, I am a seasoned artist and inventor. The plan is for me to do a vast majority of the work myself and produce the
first few episodes with a minimal budget. With proper equipment and more time spent editing I am sure I can produce a few
very professional and entertaining episodes involving the process of bringing an idea through the inventing, prototyping and
patenting process. With out success on the plan to produce sellable episodes that receive airtime, there will be no income
and no money to hire all the experts that are often required to produce a show. In other words I, Ken Driessen for the time
being am the only key person.

*SEE SAMPLE WORK BELOW AND ATTACHED
Explain the current status of the
project and discuss your plans for completing it. Identify potential funding resources and indicate approach being taken to
Some of my inventions deal with
cutting edge technology pertinent to economic and environmental sustainability. There
seem to be no funds available to an independent private person for endeavors such as designing, building and patenting such
products. I support this notion with experience of searching for such private
and public funding. I have sent out proposals and business plans to private venture
funding entities and foundations. The only replies I received from the foundations
were rejections because I was not a non-profit entity. For such a project as
this, I feel lack of funding is quite an ironic and unfair situation.
I have donated blood to the Red
Cross and at times was a regular donor of gallons of my blood. Red Cross is a
non-profit organization whose directors all receive 6 figure digits. Since 2000 the presidents (CEOs) of the Red Cross receive
half a million dollar salaries for the sale of the blood good people donate. Non-profit
status has at times become a method for greedier and less savory people to receive a high pay rate and use up money that has
been donated to help less fortunate poorer people in need. In other words non-profit
has to do with the status of the corporation/business entity. Individuals within the non-profit organization can receive competitive
So this is why I am willing and
anxious to become part of a tribal education program. For such a tribal educational
entity, public grants and private foundation funding is available for such projects as an educational TV series that promotes
invention of alternate energy and energy saving devices.
While I would like to get equipment
and operating funds in hand as soon as possible to produce the show, I imagine my first job will be to raise the necessary
funds. Once I am an affiliate of a tribal education entity, I believe my first
job will be to write applications and proposals for grants. I have researched
and downloaded the forms necessary to become a tax exempt non-profit entity. I
have downloaded forms to apply for funding from CPB/PBS to become an independent producer for them.
It may be that The Patents Pending
Show could be funded as a program within the local education system or it may be that PPS could become a subsidiary non-profit
of a local community entity. In the second case it would be necessary to apply
for Federal 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Status. This requires filing a US department of the treasury internal revenue form 1023 titled;
Application for Recognition of Exemption under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, including a $500 fee. Once
this decision is made and I, as an employee of a local governmental or educational entity, we will be able to seek funding
from one or more of the following entities and many additional private foundations:
Public Broadcasting Service/Public
Independent Television Service
National Endowment for the
US Department of Energy
It is quite possible that commercial
broadcasting corporations such as Discovery, ABC,NBC, CBS, Fox, National Geographic network or others may want to purchase
rights to air to The Patents Pending Show. To get an idea of the money available
to produce movies and shows, the Public Broadcasting Service budget for program purchasing is about 333 million per year.
In a time when owners and manufacturers
are encouraged by greed and government tax breaks to make their products overseas, it may be possible to create good paying
manufacturing jobs in the community, producing innovative environmentally friendly products.
If products illustrated on the show lead to successful patented and licensed products, a contractual agreement could
make which would allocate some of those royalties to PPS to cover production expenses
The community would also benefit from use and implementation of products illustrated on PPS episodes. Such profitable spin-offs could assist in continued long term funding of the show. Another possible spin-off could be for the investment into equipment and resources used to produce the
PPS could be used to produce news and shows involving local culture.

for The Patents Pending Show project.
