Hi everyone I’m JD Houvener your host of the bold Today Show were you the inventor entrepreneur and business owner get your daily dose of inspiration to make the world a better place right we’re in part five of our flying animal theme and I wanted to search high and far across the animal kingdom to find a really cool example and the funnest one was and then will it actually can’t fly but it falls with style this is the flying squirrel okay so you’ve seen these animals perhaps you can picture the image right away these flying squirrels to a specific part of their body that connects the with the air connects their wrists to their body and it’s sort of like a membrane and they’re able to do amazing things my research finds that I’m able to fly up to 300 feet and they can turn 180 degrees in the air while they fall in us glide through the air pretty impressive and so I do group them in the grip of flying animals so what we can learn from a flying squirrel and apply to your daily business life is that they do indeed fall with style and so I encourage you on your challenge today is to think about failing right when you go for it and just stumble right you fall on your face you make a big mistake take ownership right say yeah that was me and you know when you do that you can fail it with and stay cool while you’re doing it say look you know what we’re going to learn from these mistakes and move on so make like a flying squirrel today so I wanted to look at the invention know humans constantly try to be these flying creatures and have an endeavor to do so so I look back a little bit as to the single-engine jet pack inventions so here it is this invention was by Moser in 2000 to put this pad together in this pretty amazing looking jet pack there’s lots of different jet pack inventions but I like this one because it showcased you know the huge fans at the bottom and really putting in a lot of different technology into their written description so make sure to take a look at this pulp the patent number and read through it with me when you do I want you to focus on the written description and for 35 USC 1 1 2 and section 112 the written description requires that just one version of the invention be described and this is the one embodiment rule embodiment means it’s a fancy word for just one one example right what is one working example of your invention and how does it get described so that’s all that’s required in the spec but a good application as you’ll see this one does goes into great detail about how in fact you could make it what are other alternatives other types of propulsion mechanisms in this case that could make this invention work better so have a look at the written description of this invention and let me know if you have any questions at all feel free to put in our comments below I’d be happy to read those and get back to you have a wonderful day everyone thanks for joining the bowl today’s show I’m your host JD Houvener and go big go bold [Music]
