Mixing Golf Inventions with Reality TV: Brilliant!
Americans love a good invention. They also love their reality TV. To capitalize on these interests, the television network ABC had developed the reality television show American Inventor. Many independent inventors, for better or for worse, have participated in this show. Even more viewers, including those in the IP blogosphere, watch the show on a regular basis.
Inventions and reality TV . . . what could be better (or worse), you ask? Well, we happened across a show titled Fore Inventors Only this week on The Golf Channel. This show narrows down, in full reality-TV glory, a field of individuals who have invented golf-related devices. A cheap knock-off of American Inventor, or a brilliant concept whose time has finally arrived . . . you be the judge!
