Award-winning Filipino Inventions

Saturday, December 5, 2009

At the recently concluded Inventors week and Exhibition held at the Taguig City University, several world class inventions by Filipinos were displayed. It is really amazing to know that Filipinos can come up with gadgets, technologies, or products that can make an impact on the development not only of the country but also other countries that may employ such inventions. Take for example a device that can tranform ocean waves into electricity. It is said that the Philippines can achieve energy sufficiency by just tapping the power of the ocean. With this invention together with the advent of electrical vehicles, we can no longer be dependent on imported oil. Here is a photo of the device which is an invention of Engr. Macario Tagum from Laguna Province.

Another interesting invention is the Magichanic Oil by inventor Johnny Nonog Sy.

This is an engine oil additive that gives several benefits to vehicle owners. These benefits include increase power and protection to the engine as well as better performance and savings. This has been tested by the Department of Science and Technology as well as by the Department of Transportation and Communication.

Still another great invention that is good for the environment is the rain harvester by Engr. Antonio F. Mateo who is an alumnus of Mapua Institute of technology. As the name implies, the device would catch rainfall, disinfect it and store it in tanks for ready use. The rain harvester can be installed in buildings, homes and even in vacant lots. Just think of what it will do if all buildings and homes will have it. There will be enough potable water and it lessens flooding! Here a photo of the device.

Another inventor who participated in the exhibit is Arquilio Y. Melano, Sr. whose products include gas safety regulator with adjustable flow control and adaptor unit
and Super Turbo Atomizer with Anti-Pollution Device. These products were exhibited even in Switzerland!

Other notable inventions in the exhibit are:
1. Aeronox electro-Nitrous converter a fuel savings and anti-pollution device;
2. Carmenbees synchrotherapy apparatus - detects and corrects electrical imbalances in the human body thus boosting human immune system by Engr. Leonardo Orijuela;
3. Cratage - a 8 in 1 portable cradle bed with self built cottage and hand carry pack bag.
4. MCGrill - a griller
5. U-Wash - a do-it-yourself coin-operated car and motor washer
6. ATM or Automatic Tubig Machine -a cold water dispenser
7. Ironmate - a device to save electricity while ironing clothes

Of course there were also the usual food and wellnes products on display. The point is there are many talented and skilled Filipinos who are capable of producing world-class inventions. If these talents are nurtured and supported, there will be more competitive businesses that we can be proud of.

ngek, nawala comment ko.
sabi ko totoong nakakaawa naman at wala man lang suporta ang gobyerno sa kanila at ang ending e ibinebenta nalang nila sa mga foreign investors yung ideas.
nagkaron dyan satin ng fairtrade para sa mga produkto ng mga local inventors kaso naman diko talaga afford ang mga oresyo na sky high, meron din naman ditong available na kagaya nung mga inbensyon nila (na matagal ng naimbento dito) at talaga namang napakamura at tumatagal din naman ang buhay,so ang ending, dito din ako nakakabili.

magaling naman talaga ang mga ibang pinoy..may mga pinoy inventions kaso hindi binibigyan ng prayoridad o halaga ng gobyerno kaya ang imbento nila ay nasasayang lang o kaya ibang bansa ang humahawak ng imbento nila..

Hope to see these stuff on the market, hoping this will make Filipinos worldwide as innovators...

To Len, I agree. Our inventors deserve government attention and financial support.

To Lee, OO may mga inventions na nabili o kaya (illegally) nakopya ng mga foreigners. very sad indeed.

To Arvin, tama ka jan pare.

To Glentot, may nabasa nga ako sa Fortune magazine na "The Philippines is not known as a source of innovations but in the area of geothermal energy, the country is leading the way". Hope that really the inventors will make the country a known source of innovative products.
