I believe in giving back to the communities that I occupy whether that is in my neighborhood or cyberspace, so here I go. If I had paid more attention in chemistry, both in high school and college, I would be running with this multi-million dollar idea on my own, but my mind was better suited for remembering trivia from popular culture instead of formulas.
During one of my morning walks I came across this tired sign and it got me to thinking. If exposure to the sun is hard on our skin, just think about road signs who are in a state of constant exposure to all elements. Eventually they end up like this specimen and have to be replaced and that costs $$$ in materials and labor. Just think of how many road signs there are in the U.S. alone and how many are replaced each day. Did your "HUGE OPPORTUNITY" light just start flashing? I thought so.
All you have to do is develop a weather resistant, fade-proof coating for the finish on the signs, patent it, get backing from one the multi-millionaires on Shark Tank, and watch the armored trucks line up to make deposits at your bank. I've even got the perfect name for the product "Signscreen"...like sunscreen for signs. So, why are you still sitting there? I've come up with the idea and a catchy name. The hard work has been done.
