Inventor Chad Xon Qua has discovered a way to use honey as a scent diffuser which among other benefits, saves the user money by making fragrances last longer. As a child, Qua recalls his beekeeping father show him how after extracting honey into a barrel, the flies, roaches, ants, and other impurities that ended up in the honey during the extraction process would float to the top and easily be scraped off the top of the surface of the honey. But Qua didn’t realize until three decades later how that could be applied to making perfume and cologne diffusers. Qua has discovered how to use only such top foam layer of honey, which therefore acts as a diffuser by way of the fragrances slightly penetrating such surface layer of honey, and spit back out in a rather recycling manner.
Caption: On the surface or outer most wall of honey is a foamy porous structure in which the primary scent producing ingredients of perfumes and colognes can recycle through and be activated by pressure.
Perhaps ironically, Qua will not seek patent protection, but instead will introduce the new technology in his new brief online course called Honey Hazard, referred to as a scent domination system; with detailed instructions of how to make such various diffusers using the new technology. The course includes his new book titled: “Beeing” Scentfully Successful, which covers techniques and tactics for having a strategic smell for given situations which are not all the same, such as the scent you would use on a dinner date vs. that which you might use at a job interview.
Qua explains why he’s choosing not to patent the new technology: “The Patent System has become a joke and a trap for the independent garage inventor. The big Wall Street conglomerates lobbied, for all intents and purposes, the right to steal IP [intellectual property] from the little guy, and they essentially got it when the AIA was passed into law. So this book and course is about my fight for a better method of bringing new technologies and innovations to the public; bypassing the need to deal with large companies like Amazon for distribution, and the Wall Street conglomerates to manufacture and market such.”
“I encourage independent inventors to brainstorm an innovation in which they can actually show others how to make it themselves with relative ease. Though it may seem counterintuitive to show others how to make it themselves, so they don’t have to buy it from you… think deeper!” continues Qua, and moreover:
“The same thing happens when you apply for a patent, and under far worse conditions! In fact, in order to get a patent, you must teach others how to make and use your best version of your invention in your patent application, which is a highly visible and easily obtainable public record. Then you get to make claims on what the invention is, but everyone that I know who is familiar with the process knows such claims allowed by the PTO are generally weaker than ever, and usually ridiculously easy to design around. And the difference between now and before the AIA was passed, is that before, an inventor could apply for one patent, and then use his notes as leverage, in which a large company wouldn’t know if he was going to apply for another patent and what the claims might be. Even if the large company applied for a patent using other claims before the inventor, the inventor could use his notes to override and get his own additional patent thereof. Whereas now, the First To Patent has all rights to the invention.”
Many inventors and organizations, such as the Save The Inventor foundation relate that this is maniacal to the small independent inventor, since it was already common practice even before the AIA, that a large company would knowingly and wilfully infringe on the IP of small and micro entities with very little fear of any consequences.
“The big Wall Street powerhouses know that the small independent inventor can’t afford the ten or more patents that it usually takes just to adequately protect one invention, and they like it that way. Of course you can search the internet for some stories about how a small garage inventor successfully sued a large company for infringing on his patent, but those stories are highly uncommon on the larger scope, and have only become even more rare since the passing of the AIA” says Qua.
Qua relates that he is currently taking pre-orders and registrations for the launching of his book and course, and that those who are among the first to review it will get the package at the lowest cost ever and will also receive additional benefits and bonuses that later members won’t get, such as no upsells, and all-inclusive free updates.
“I’m really excited to be launching an innovative technology and product in this manner”, says Qua; continuing: “I’m hoping my initial members will help me (the underdog) take the fight to the big dogs.”
