- Among the innovations are those that can greatly cut your electricity bill
- Republic Act 7459 gives great support and value to Filipino inventors
When it comes to innovations and inventions, Filipinos are not left far behind. Among the innovations are those that could help solve the problems of many, like cutting on electricity bill.
In the GMA program “iJuander”, it was shown that a “vaporizer machine” made by Glen Castillo is a wonder invention; such that aside from providing drinkable, alkaline water, it only cost a few additional bucks on your utility bill because it has only about 300-400 wattage compared to other appliances of its kind that uses up to 1000 Watts.
Alkaline water is also said to be good for the health.
And speaking of good health, another of Castillo’s innovations is what he calls the “Stationary Bike.” It is effective for those who want to lose weight by exercise, and at the same time, it is able to charge 12 Volts or 24 Volts battery with 500 Amperes.
When it comes to ironing clothes, the flat iron is perhaps among the top 3 appliances on your list that is considered as a “monster” in energy consumption. And that is why Rodolfo Biescas invented the “IronMate” in 1988.
With the help of the IronMate, electricity consumption over ironing clothes could be reduced by 53%. It also has safety measures to prevent fire.
Biescas also invented the multi-cooler fan in 1982, and after decades, it still works in 2018 with its vintage, wooden look.
The Republic Act 7459 or Inventors and Invention Incentives Act of the Philippines gives great support and value to Filipino inventors.
However, not all were fortunate enough to be given financial assitance by the government, like Jess of Caloocan City, who invented a multi-purpose cooking stove he calls “fully pyro.”
Aside from being a stove, it can also be used to grill food. It is fuel efficient and has smoke-reduction mechanisms.
