The one gadget I am seriously interested in patenting is the helium-inflated bellows. I figure it will lighten the load of the backpack by several pounds. Of course, the attached helium tank and valve needed to refill it after you use the camera will add about a eighty more pounds than you take away,
but that's the kind of thing one puts in very small print on the backside of the marketing brochure, if
at all. The inflation gage would have to have a digital readout, however, remotely programmed to an
I-phone across the meadow, of course - otherwise it wouldn't be cool enough to sell. Heck, pretty soon
even that crazy porcine dictator in N Korea will just have to own one of these!
