Visions far beyond what others see
This website is to
provide a little background
( this website is being developed and
expanded since July 2010 - updated Jan 2013)
Currently I have over 20 new ideas that I am in the process of
developing. These ideas are totally varied - from a new
spoon, to a new calendar, a new device to create electricity to
power an entire farm, a new chair and two unique new bed
Many of the things I have created catch the attention of others and with building / home design people ask to see them. Today I want to continue with my idea that I currently have in the process to see them all come to reality. And I want to work in the area of creating attractions like tourist attractions / novelties / museums.
I know that what I can create others will gladly pay use or just to see. My ideas are most always ahead of their time and that creates the problem of them not being accepted as they are to advanced or to simple for others to understand. My business name means exactly that - normal vision is 20-20, my visions are always far ahead of what others see, my ideas/visions are 20-80.
Thank you for reading a very little about me and consider me for you next new vision/concept/product development. I will create something others will want to see and buy.

Below is more about me and many other things / accomplishments that I have to my credit:

a farm in Southwest Iowa and lived in Iowa all my life except
during my military time. Grew up on a farm with outdoor
plumbing and wood heat. As I grew up I built and designed
all kinds of things and in school learned that if I applied
myself to any subject I could soon become an Expert on it even
surpassing the teachers. While serving in the military in
Vietnam I designed and built numerous things from the scraps of
my surroundings to make life easier and more comfortable for my
fellow soldiers. I had a Top Secret Clearance and working
in Operations and Intelligence. After the military I
designed various furniture pieces and some very amusing light
box end tables.
While studying Architecture I designed a totally unique chair which you sat on backwards and years later came out as one of the ergonomic chair designs. During the early seventies the first energy crisis swept the country. I was preparing a personal house design so decided to make it an energy efficient home. After studying everything I designed a totally new design and created all kinds of innovative ideas in one of the simplest and most advanced Passive Solar homes in the country. As usual my ideas were far ahead of everyone else. I was rejected by 16 banks for a construction mortgage and ended up loosing my job because I was not supposed to be able to design the things I had - because I was not an engineer. I received state level acknowledgement for my designs and many things I designed are now used in today's construction.
Thing after thing in my life I devised a new simple way to do things better. I prepared family trees for my immediate families and created a coding system that tells you exactly what generation someone is in and what family group they are in. An innovation system that works much better than the ones currently being used.
Over the years I had my own retail business and many times customers came in looking for certain things. When I would see that there was no such item on the market from manufacturers I created many things to fill those needs - sometimes by just talking to one of my suppliers and they would make the item for both me and for the rest of the world.
I still all the time in my daily life look at things and can't figure them out, so I have to create a new way to do them. Out of need but sometimes just for the interest of it my mind comes up with new products, new views of existing things, new concepts to make things work better. My biggest concern is my ideas are always totally new and ahead of their time and this makes them not accepted.
Today I see many things on the market that I thought of years before and every time I tried to talk to people about them they just looked at me like I was crazy. So now I am going to ignore others as they really don't know anything about new ideas. And it just shows me how little they know about things and developing new products. But the First thing I get is a lecture about that I better Patent the idea and how expensive that is and all kinds of other advise from them. And yet when I ask them or someone to sign a "non-disclosure agreement" they have never heard of that. (It is one of the most important and "basic" items used in new product development)
Here are some ideas that I have had over the past 10 - 15 years or so and everyone just ignores me and thinks I'm crazy - yet a version of them are being sold today.
Currently I have many ideas of things that I have been developing over the past few years are still in the process of being sold to different businesses. And as always, everyone you talk to thinks they are an Expert at Patents and try to give me advice. And the thing I have learned is even though everyone ignores my ideas they are all good and I am always way ahead of my time on them. 20-80 design - seeing new things far ahead of everyone else.
Please consider me when you need something unique, something different than the generic that anyone can come up with. I will solve a problem, create an interest, and make things that people will be amazed at and will pay money to buy or just to see.
Sincerely, Rex O. Karas
Updates: Another idea that I
have had for over ten years and everyone just thinks I'm stupid
for thinking the world needs them.
- You go to the hospitals and they have the sinks with the foot pedals to step on and turns on the water so you can wash your hands without touching anything. Now both Koehler and Moen have ads on tv for their new kitchen faucets with Koehler you just touch the faucet and it turns on and Moen has theirs that are motion detection so you just pass over the sensor and the faucet turns on. Good ideas but the units are very expensive at 375 dollars for the unit. A set of properly designed foot peddles to go on the floor under the basefront of sinks would could only 50-75 dollars.
- Using new technology wanted to make a small locator for remote controls and keychains and more to find them. Old ones have been around for years but most were large silver dollar sized items at least half inch thick and were to large to conviently put on things. With today's technology of making things much much smaller figured could make one size of the anti-theft electronics in most packaging today. This would allow them to be stuck onto a remote or cell phone or keys in a size 1/10 the size of others from the past. But just seen one on tv that is similar that you put one part on your keychain and the other on your phone and when they are separated by a certain distance an alarm goes off preventing someone from taking either when your out or you just loosing one or the other.
