National Inventors Month: Client Spotlight

Davison - Positive Client Feedback

May is National Inventors Month and in the spirit of this month-long celebration, we’ve already covered the likes of some of the most famous inventors in history and the original piano man, Bartolomeo Cristofori!

Today, we’re bringing this blog closer to home and putting the spotlight on our Davison clients, who are taking the first steps in making their inventing dreams a reality!

As a company that’s committed to helping idea people from far and wide with their invention ideas, we always put a lot of stock in what are clients are saying, so that we can give the best service in return.

To make sure that we are helping these idea people and providing them with a Better Way to invent, we send out surveys, so that real clients can give us real, valuable feedback. From there, we use their suggestions, comments and ideas and infuse them into our work to provide an even better inventing method.

That said, here’s some of the positive feedback that we’ve gathered from happy clients that have received our Pre-Development Portfolios:

“Davison is a very helpful company to develop my idea.” -Donald H.

“Love this company.” – Joshua F.

This Inventor is the Original ‘Piano Man’

Bartolomeo_Cristofori_Google_Doodle

May is National Inventors Month! This month-long celebration promotes the inventors whose ideas have served as real contributions in the world.

When you think about inventors, names like George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein and Alexander Graham Bell might come to mind.

But in today’s blog, in honor of this inventors 361st birthday, we’re paying tribute to Bartolomeo Cristofori, just like Google did last year with Cristofori’s very own Google doodle.

Does his name strike a chord with you? If it doesn’t, you’ll want to listen to his story!

Bartolomeo_Cristofori

Though Cristofori likely isn’t a household name or a name that immediately pops into your head when you think of famous inventors, you’d be surprised to know that his invention is much more popular than you think.

As an Italian musical instrument maker, Cristofori has been credited with the invention of the pianoforte, or as we now know it, the piano.

Yes, Cristofori invented the piano – you know, the instrument that plays some of the most beautiful music, has helped create some of the most famous music pieces and has aided some of the world’s best musicians? Yes, we’re talking about that piano!

Cristofori’s invention idea started when he created a hammer mechanism that struck the strings on a keyboard to make a sound. Depending on how hard or lightly the hammer struck the key, the sound would either be louder or softer.

The ability to change the volume of the tones was a major breakthrough for the music world.

Before Cristofori invented the piano, he worked as a harpsichord maker. If you’re unfamiliar with the harpsichord, the idea of changing the loudness of the tones is very foreign for this instrument. So, Cristofori set out find a better way to make music.

How did he do so? As we mentioned before, his invention was comprised of a hammer that struck the strings to make either soft or loud sounds, depending on the amount of pressure placed on the key by the musician. He removed the plucking mechanism that’s commonly found on a harpsichord and replaced it with a hammer – thus laying the foundation for the piano!

The origin of the piano dates back to around 1709 and about four of his pianos existed by 1711.

But, like most inventions, the first iteration isn’t the last. In fact, it took Cristofori 25 years to improve his piano to the piano that we’re most familiar with. The frames for his piano were made of wood in the style of a harpsichord. Though his invention wasn’t accepted by his home country of Italy, it was the Germans who marketed and made the instrument popular.

If it wasn’t for Cristofori’s idea and his ability to think outside of the harpsichord, we can’t help but wonder where would the likes of Frederic Chopin, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johann Sebastian Bach, to name a few, be?

You see, there’s no idea too small or large. Who knows, maybe one day your invention idea will change the world like Cristofori’s idea did!

Start National Inventors Month with these Five Quotes

National Inventors Month - Davison

National Inventors Month is underway and we’re starting this month-long celebration off with some motivation – after all, it is Monday!

So, what exactly does National Inventors Month entail? The month of May is reserved for the celebration of invention and creativity, which began in 1998 by the United Inventors Association of the USA (UIA-USA), the Academy of Applied Science and Inventors’ Digest magazine.

At Davison, we take great pride in our clients who had ideas and believed in them so much that they turned to us to help make their invention dreams a reality. For us, we treat every month like it’s National Inventors Month as we champion the idea people who continue to create and innovate every day.

The purpose of National Inventors Month is to promote the inventors whose ideas have served as real contributions to the world.

Today, to kick off our celebration of all things inventing, let’s take a look at some of the motivational quotes from perhaps the most prolific inventors in history!

“There is no substitute for hard work.” ­ ­- Thomas Edison

“When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” - Alexander Graham Bell

“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs

“When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.” – Elon Musk

“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.” – George Washington Carver

Now that you’ve read the words of some of the most notable inventors, do you feel inspired to make today the day that you begin your inventing journey? For every inventor, it takes one step forward outside of their comfort zone to pursue that idea that’s been living in their mind for quite some time.

All it takes is a little courage, a lot of creativity and a healthy dose of perseverance to one day turn your dreams into reality!

Client Invention Shows QVC Viewers a Better Way to Make Brownies

PushPerfect 8 Brownie Pan - QVC

In case you missed it last Wednesday, Davison client Bobby’s PushPan Brownie Pan was featured on the popular QVC segment, “Kitchen Unlimited with Carolyn.”

Bobby came to Davison with his idea for better brownies. His innovative pan would later be licensed to our friends at Love Cooking Company, who were also excited for this brownie innovation to debut on leading video and ecommerce retailer QVC!

It’s always exciting to see one of our products in the limelight!

While on the show, the product went by the name “PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan with Slicing Grid” and was shown by longtime QVC guest host Marie Louise Ludwig, alongside host Carolyn Gracie.

This wasn’t Ludwig’s first time showing off a Davison-licensed product. In fact, she showcased the Pinata Nonstick Cupcake Pan last September.

PushPerfect 8 Brownie Pan - QVC

 

In last week’s segment, QVC host Carolyn Gracie and Ludwig both demonstrated the innovative PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan and how it can be used to make just about anything.

For example, brownies with ganache on top or crispy cereal treats to satisfy any sweet tooth and some other savory options like pull-apart pepperoni cheese bread and cornbread are just a few delicious choices.

It didn’t take long for Gracie to proclaim that the PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan had become one of her favorite baking pans!

The pan comes with its own slicing grid that can be used during or after baking.

“You get perfect squares every time!” said Ludwig, noting how you can leave the grid in during baking to make sure each square has a chewy edge.

“And, nobody fights because they got the bigger or the smaller pieces,” said Ludwig.

Now, thanks to the PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan, baking just got a little bit easier!

You can get your very own PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan on QVC.com for $27.50 right now. For a bite of inspiration, pick up yours to try a Davison client’s inventive idea today!
