For this week’s broadcast of HomeTalkUSA’s “InventAmerica!” segment, Michael King and co-host Rita Crompton discuss the best type of marketing – a professional tradeshow – as the 2024 National Hardware Show approaches. Joined by inventor and industry expert Jim Gurule, membership chair for the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NorCal Chapter) and council member for GLG. Jim has a family of patents related to cabinet installation. His first patent is used to install millions of cabinets every year and continues to be sold nationally through retailers like Home Depot, Lowes and on-line through Amazon. He is currently working to commercialize his second generation of patents. His newest invention, a multi-use panel clamp, is used for cabinet and closet installation and assembly projects, taking advantage of the growing Ready to Assemble market in the U.S. & around the world. Jim also leads an AI project and team that uses machine learning to build a neural network for scene reconstruction
of an existing kitchen, using a standard mobile phone camera to create a digital twin.
