6. Jaime Lee Curtis
Motherhood can leave you frustrated, especially when you forget to pack baby wipes. Jaime Lee Curtis must have felt this frustration one time too many. She designed and built a little waterproof pocket on one side of her baby’s diaper, which let her put wipes inside it. She patented her discovery but as useful as it was, it was not used because Jaimie insisted on diaper companies using biodegradable materials.
7. James Cameron
James Cameron was passionate about his work as a movie photographer, and it was that passion that led him to his invention. Set to shoot a scene underwater, James felt that he wouldn’t get the best clips and so he and his brother designed a contraption to help them overcome their problems.
They filed for patenting and used the same technology to get good clips during the filming of Titanic.
8. Herbert Zeppo Marx
Although Herbert did well in the movies he acted, he was much better at thinking and invention. He invented a device called the pulse rate monitor. The pulse rate monitor reads the pulse of the person wearing it and prompts the person that stops any harmful activity they are carrying out.
9. Francis Ford Coppola
All of us have that one annoying itch we can’t reach. Amid the irritating discomfort, we look around and realize that we need to reach that scratch. Even when you get someone to scratch the itch, they don’t always get it right.
Francis had had one too many failed attempts and so out of necessity designed the Garment for identifying the location of the body of the garment wearer.
10. Marlon Brando
Marlon Brando didn’t just regale us with drums because he enjoyed hearing the sound; he was passionate about drums. Marlon designed the drumhead tensioning device which changed the design of drums.
In essence, these celebs own these inventions, and anyone who breaks them should be prepared for a patent break lawsuit and patent endorsement papers.
