2015 Innovation Festival Calls for Exhibitor Applications

The 2015 Innovation Festival will be held on September 26th & 27th and will explore how today’s inventors are creating the world of our future. In preparation for the event, the USPTO and the Smithsonian are now accepting applications of inventors interested in exhibiting their inventions at this year’s event.

Inventor Spotlight – Alexei Novitzky, Inventor of the Skatecase

Avid skateboarder Alexei Novitzky was at the festival to display his unique invention. As a graduate student in the Mechanical Engineering program at USF, Alexei wanted to solve his problem of needing to carry around a backpack in addition to his skateboard.  For many students bicycles or scooters are an effective and efficient way to travel from class to class, especially when one is short on time or running late.  But Alexei, like many others, chose to ride a skateboard.  He didn’t like the idea of having to wear a backpack or having to carry items in his pockets, so he decided to combine the two items he needed, a skate board and backpack, into one item and his invention, the Skatecase, was born.
