Fun Fact
In 1948 a Swiss mountaineer and inventor, George de Mestral, found his pants covered with burrs. He discovered small hooks on the burrs attached to loops of his pants fabric. He designed a two-sided fastener with hooks and loops and called his invention ‘Velcro’.

Lightning simulator

Our Client

A manufacturer of lightning rods was having difficulty with sales demo kits designed to simulate lightning on a model house.  The demo kits had been designed nearly 50 years ago and were based on outdated technology. Facing complete loss of the last remaining demo units, the customer enlisted Inventure to update the technology and fabricate a new set of lightning simulators.

Our Solution

Step one in the redesign process was to study the operation of the few remaining outdated demo units.  After gaining a thorough understanding of the device and of the customer's requirements, Inventure set out to bring the latest materials, components and safety features into the redesign.  The result is a portable, attractive and robust lightning simulator that produces sparks up to 8 inches long.
