Going back to the theme of marketing for my iCan innovation, mybabyjohn sent me a suggestion which I made no comment about for reasons which will become clear in a minute. She said:
"Here's another one you can market. Hold a glass up to a wall, put your ear against it and you have a prehistoric version of the whisper 2000. Should make you about as much money as the iCan. No charge for the idea. You're welcome to it."
I did not thank her for her generous offer, simply because I am currently in negotiations with various security agencies around the world for the supply of a device which is so similar to the one she describes, that I am beginning to wonder if my CAD system on the iMac has been hacked into. It is a sensitive issue right now, and the talks have reached a delicate stage, so if you breathe a word of this to anyone outside our immediate circle, I will have to have you eliminated. My Research and Development team have been working night and day on the latest project, and we now have a few prototypes to send to various security fairs around the globe.
Just to think that it all started out with the humble iCan (now available in a choice of Humbrol colours), and from there developed into the 'Stringless iCan' (range: 30 feet, depending on weather conditions), in response to the burgeoning 'bluetooth' market.
Of course, both these devices are aimed at the civilian market, but shortly I will be unveiling the indispensable piece of surveillance equipment so accurately described by mybabyjohn above. It is called.....
... the 'Private iCan' !
