John Daniels has over twenty-five years experience as an engineer and patent attorney.

John has a multi-faceted career as an innovator and entrepreneur. His first invention, a fog-less shower mirror, was patented while still in law school. John turned that invention into a product, the FogNot, and sold tens of thousands of units. His first patent portfolio sale consisted of an electrorheological fluid brake for exercise equipment sold to NordicTrack, Inc. John has innovated and sold inventions to companies such as Abu Garcia/Outdoor Technologies Group, a leader in sports fishing equipment, and a cellphone range extending and radiation shield to a start-up called RangeStar.

John created a suite of interactive television innovations, and built the world’s first television pause button. The prototypes were demonstrated and this patent portfolio sold to Microsoft.

John founded a start-up company called Articulated Technologies, Inc. based on his innovations for Light Emitting Diodes, displays and solar cells. Articulated Technologies was sold in 2010.

With a proven ability to see where the future intersection of enabling technologies will occur, John has demonstrated he can conceive of useful inventions, protect those inventions, build working prototypes that further the building of the patent portfolio, and finally commercialize the resulting technology either through the introduction of products or the sale of significant intellectual property to industry.
