Closing Post- Braeden Benedict

Hi everybody!

This is going to be my last blog post. This has been such a great experience for me, as I am sure it has been for all the finalists.

As I mentioned in my last video blog, my favorite part has been working on something that has real world application. I feel like my innovation has the potential to really help people. Along the way, I have learned so much about the process of innovation. I had no idea when I began how many poor ideas one must go through to find a good one. I have come to realize the truth of Thomas Edison’s saying, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.” I had to put in so much hard work to make my idea work. Read more

YSC Final Two Weeks - Albert

I started off these two week with an intense crackdown on my prototype and rapid depletion of my cellphone minutes. I had about two hour-long conversations with Roger, a co-worker of my mentor, who helped me get a sense of what I was doing and how I was to approach my final presentation. So I'm piecing together the bits and pieces of my final online presentation and I will complement it with a short demonstration of the mechanics of my innovation.

My favorite part about this journey was the "challenge" which, after receiving insight on my limitations, I finally realized that it was building the prototype. Yet, along the way, I learned a great deal about marketing, engineering and integrating an innovation into the real world. The reason was because Roger gave me an example of a development that had died off because of either lack of funding or interest. It was then that I fully understood the difference between concept and reality. There are so many great concepts that have not been made reality. Read more

Week 10- Braeden Benedict

In this video blog post, I will be showing you some of the testing I have conducted. I had to split the video into five parts to upload it, but it's all here.

In the videos from the testing at Gunther's Athletics, you will see Jose. He works at Gunther's Athletics and helped me operate the testing equipment. He was a huge help with the testing and made the whole process go smothly. Thanks, Jose!
