Meet The Inventor

Shane Chen founded Inventist so that he could design and manufacture his innovative creations and share them with the world.

Shane ChenInventor
Shane's active lifestyle and an overactive imagination combined to fuel his vision of enhancing the activities he enjoyed -- windsurfing and other water sports, skating, skiing, biking and cooking -- by creating unconventional and easy-to-use equipment. A self-described "tinkerer" from a young age, he holds thirty-three patents. Mr. Chen’s inventions extend beyond sports and fitness to include home electronics and kitchen appliances, such as the FizzSaver, Leantisserie and Alkacharger.
My mission is to develop sports-related products that are genuinely new and fun to use, while adding an element of fitness at the same time. - Shane Chen, Inventor

Come One, Come All
Trying to come up with a captivating trade show booth can be tough. Nowadays you need to include more than just a large banner, you need multimedia capabilities to really engage the audience. But bringing, or even renting an extra screen, projector, laptop, and extension cords can be a hassle. Even more, once you get your booth set up the way you want it, you almost always end up tripping over the cords and constantly walking in front of your media display. Enter Inventist with our new patented trade show booth design. With our display, you have both your banner and screen for multimedia projection all in one! Plus, it allows a projector to hide under the display so cords are out of the way and booth attendees can walk about without interfering with their media presentations, leaving the display to be the “big screen” attention grabber! Inventor and CEO, Shane Chen, and Chief Product Evangelist, Claude Rorabaugh, will be presenting this display live at the Exhibitor Live Conference at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas March 13-15, 2017. They desire to meet with trade show display makers who might be interested in a licensing agreement. The future of trade shows just got a whole lot brighter! Photos in order from top to bottom: an enhanced image of the entire Inventist trade show booth with the pre-printed background and a video on the top screen,  a close-up of the projector placement,  an extreme close-up of the projection screen material, and  a medium shot of our pre-printed display with the blank screen.

Happy National Inventors Day
In recognition of the enormous contribution inventors make to the nation and the world, Congress designated February 11 as National Inventors’ Day back in 1983 because it was the birthday of inventor Thomas Alva Edison. Edison held over 1,000 patents from the light bulb to the motion picture camera and was affectionately known as America’s greatest inventor. While it’s true we’ve all come to depend on Edison’s inventions, we’d also like to take the time to recognize another very important inventor in our lives. Our founder, Shane Chen, is the brilliant mind behind all our inventions here at Inventist. Shane has over 30 patents, from the Aqua Skipper to the new Solowheel Iota. Many of his inventions have gotten national and even worldwide attention, being featured on such programs as QVC and CNBC’s Squawk Box. We’ve also received images and videos of fans using his inventions in Australia, Italy, and Russia. Shane, as your staff, we would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday and to say a BIG thank you for all you do!  For us, this day will always be National Inventist Day! 😉
