Fun Fact
Alexander Graham Bell and Elisha Gray both filed patents for the telephone on the same day, February 14, 1876. Bell's patent was granted on March 7, 1876. Western Union Telegraph Company declined to buy the patent so Bell, with financial supporters, formed the Bell Telephone Company.

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  The demo kits had been designed nearly 50 years ago and were based on outdated technology.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Step one in the redesign process was to study the operation of the few remaining outdated demo units.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.
