About lebdavid

Taking marketing to a new level, David Leb patented a system of advertising on broad, exposed areas of the human body, such as the upper back and shoulder regions. His patents cover the placement of smudge-proof and perspiration-resistant washable tattoos on boxers, ultimate fighters, swimmers, beach volleyball players, and platform divers. The henna tattoos are also appropriate for triathletes, professional wrestlers, and kickboxers. Restricting the advertisements to those consisting of URL and domain names, trademarks, service marks, logos, and slogans, David Leb’s patents also allow promotion of online-wagering services. The first such advertisement, applied in the form of a henna tattoo, appeared on the back of boxer Félix Trinidad in his 2001 match against Bernard Hopkins. David Leb also shares a patent for TriviaMania.com, an online system allowing users to engage in trivia-based games for virtual and real money, in both multi-player tournaments and individual challenges. With this site, David Leb and his partner created a system that allows participants to communicate with each other until a question appears, at which point all discussion is closed. David Leb’s system protects the means for enrolling in games, delivering questions, placing wagers, assessing the accuracy of responses, paying winners through stored accounts, and collecting the TriviaMania.com commission. In addition to his work as an inventor, David Leb serves as an online marketing consultant, creating campaigns and events for such companies as a web-based casino. He also owns a Panamanian surf camp, Rancho Estero, located near Santa Catalina and overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Earth Day Test Run: David Leb

On April 12th, 2012, celebrating Earth Day, alternative-energy production from wave power achieved a significant advancement. In testing the installation of Eco Wave Power’s revolutionary design on the coast of the Black Sea, known for stormy conditions and high waves, the overwhelming success of the new technology’s features is a celebrated victory.

Installing the Power Wing and Wave Clapper designs on existing piers and wave breaks allows the mechanical portion of the devices to remain out of the water, lessening the risk of marine life’s exposure to chemicals, while in-water buoys position the main component to harness maximum potential energy. Additional advantages over previous wave-energy devices include the storm-protection feature, which retracts the “clappers” from the water, preventing damage during extreme weather conditions. A fully operational power system, producing 5Kw or more per device, is planned as the next stage in development along the Black Sea.

About the Author: David Leb, founder of Eco Wave Power, is the investor and patent holder of the Power Wing and Wave Clapper designs. Awarded the 2012 Frost & Sullivan New Product Award, these designs herald the future of wave-related alternative energy.


David Leb presents at the Blue Energy Workshop in the UK

Recently David Leb, the Founder of Eco Wave Power, spoke at the Blue Energy Workshop in England. With its innovative designs, Eco Wave Power provides clean energy at rates competitive with even traditional methods of energy production.

At the forum, Mr. Leb gave a presentation about the potential implementation of the company’s products in ports across Europe. Such an implementation would not only reduce harmful emissions and lower the ports’ already-high carbon footprints, but it would also have at least two beneficial effects for shipping terminals. The first would be a boost to a port’s and city’s eco-friendly profile, which has the potential to enhance its eco-tourism income. Secondly, simply by virtue of their placement in and around harbors, the floaters can reduce the negative impact of wave motion on the local environment by absorbing much of a wave’s erosive power.

It is unclear whether port representatives will engage Eco Wave Power’s services, but the presentation ended with many seeking out Mr. Leb to arrange future conversations.

David Leb Profiled in CEOCFO Magazine

The June 18, 2012, issue of CEOCFO magazine carried a profile of entrepreneur David Leb. Leb is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Eco Wave Power Company. At Eco Wave, he oversees the work of scientists and engineers who have developed a new method for turning the motion of waves into electrical power.

Waves contain an enormous amount of kinetic energy, but until recently engineers could not find a cost-effective way to transform the movement into electricity. David Leb’s company recently tested a medium-scale generating station on the Black Sea. The device successfully produced electricity and withstood several storms. Eco Wave’s next goal is to deploy the stations to locations around the globe in order to prove that they work for all sorts of coastal areas. After the next round of tests, the company will build and evaluate a commercial-scale generating station.

David Leb sees a lot of potential for his designs. They could provide electricity to isolated villages in the developing world. Wave power is the ultimate clean and renewable energy source, and Leb plans to bring it to the world.

Eco Wave Wins Frost and Sullivan Award

David Leb’s latest endeavor, Eco Wave Power, has won the prestigious 2012 European Frost and Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. The Israel-based company received this award for its technology, which uses the motion of ocean waves to generate electrical power. Frost and Sullivan recognized David Leb’s work because his company is the first in the wave power industry to achieve a good balance between energy production and durability.

David Leb has calculated that purchasers of an Eco Wave system should recoup their investment within three to six years, depending on the price per kwh of the electricity. He expects the systems to last about 30 years. The company has produced two designs: the Wave Clapper and the Power Wing. The decision of which generating station to purchase should be based on geography and customer need. Eco Wave is currently involved in extensive tests of the technology, which could revolutionize the market for clean, renewable sources of electricity. Villages in remote coastal regions in the developing world may especially benefit from Eco Wave technologies; on-site energy production would require minimal infrastructure.

Eco Wave Power

Eco Wave Power recently won the 2012 European Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. The company, which was founded by David Leb, has designed a system of floaters that are able to harness the kinetic energy locked in the very motion of our ocean currents. This proprietary technology has been developed to address the substantial challenges to wave power implementation. With minimal material located below water level, the system allows for easy access for maintenance and a reduction in the damage that can occur from both excessive wave height and force, as well as the damage caused by submersion in corrosive salt water. The company’s team of engineers recently established a medium scale power plant on the Black Sea.

Frost & Sullivan have been supporting innovators like Eco Wave Power and its Founder, David Leb, for over 50 years. With traditional methods of power generation coming under fire because of the toxic emissions produced by materials such as coal, the potential for wave energy to supplement or replace such methods with clean and renewable access to power makes them attractive to both investors and government policymakers alike.

The Basics of Wave Energy, by David Leb

Wind blowing over the ocean’s surface creates waves. As anyone who has witnessed a storm over the ocean can attest, waves generate tremendous power. The challenge of wave energy is how to harness that power and convert it to usable electricity.

Wave energy is only possible in those areas of the world where the wind is consistent enough to produce steady waves. Prime sites for wave energy include the northwestern coast of the United States, northern Canada, western Scotland, southern Africa, and Australia.

Wave energy technologies use the surface motion of waves or underwater pressure fluctuations to generate electricity. Nearly all are designed for use at or near the surface, and may be installed near shore, offshore, or far offshore, depending on the type of technology. The various types of wave energy devices use different methods for trapping waves and using their energy to drive turbines, electromechanical, or hydraulic energy converters.

Developers of wave energy technology must keep in mind potential hazards to the environment, including impact on the surrounding marine environment, harmful leaks or spills, noise pollution, and conflict with shipping lanes or recreational boaters.

An Introduction to the Patent Process, by David Leb

The patent process is a foundational aspect of United States and international innovation. It is a record-keeping system in place to protect the intellectual property of creators. In order to keep proper documentation of all patents, an inventor must go through a rigorous application procedure. The following list provides a few tips to consider when navigating a patent application.

1. As the adage states, “you have to spend money to make money.” The patent process is no exception. Be prepared to spend several hundred dollars on the application fee alone.

2. To speed up the process, be sure to do a thorough patent search to make sure your invention is an original idea. Some inventors opt to hire a professional agency to search for possible patent conflicts.

3. Seek the help of a qualified professional when creating the required drawings. This is an important part of the process and many applications are rejected on the basis of inadequate artwork.
