    Cool invention, but I would want no part of that. The regulatory labyrinth alone is enough to discourage me. Not to mention the potential for lawsuits.

    As far as the moral of the story: love it. Being an outsider often brings a different perspective that can be leveraged for novel insights and solutions.

    Perhaps you could find a medical device manufacturer to license it to. Royalties for life?

    Great story.

    Loved the bit at the end about him starting work on new medical inventions.

    Invent tech. License it. Go back to inventing.

    It was a simple solution to a complex problem. I'd like to think that his distance from the medical field allowed him to see the solution a different way, than say a doctor might.

    This is a phenomenon that fascinates me. When outsiders come in and disrupt.

    I have no experience in my industry, I just jumped into it. Every competitor grew up in the industry, and does things "by the book". There are so many opportunities to do things differently, and that's a big advantage for me. The biggest disadvantage is that I lack a lot of the intricate product knowledge the other guys have... but I'm doing my best to hire or contract that knowledge and skill into the company.

    I totally agree. While being in the industry has its advantages (know about the problems that plague the industry), I also feel like a certain amount of outside-the-box thinking is lost. Your no longer able to see the problems differently as a newcomer might.

    I think its a valuable thought-process that maybe only a few people have. Or only a few cultivate. It's very interesting.
