Re: Interest in personal acoustic target

First thing that comes to mind is if you have had a meeting with a patent attorney to make sure your not wasting your time or steeping on someone's toes. It's a very interesting concept and would like to know more

Isn't technology great. Good luck with your venture.

I would be very interested in something like this
something i could attach to my steel or near to anyway that could tell us how far off we are would be much better than guessing through a spotting scope

I think something similar already exists. MIT students? Saw it on 6mmbr.com last year if I remember right. They weren't selling there's at the time.

Ohler has something along those lines. I know it's under there professional series but might be worth checking out to make sure it's in the clear as far as patents. What kind of target area would you build?

My bad. Not acoustic sensors & not MIT. They used accelerometers, and it was Waterloo labs. Here's a video. You can go to their website and they give you an overview of the system and give you the code so you can build the system yourself.




I'd still be interested if someone put together a commercial system that had the same functionality.

I think he lives in Korea. Is US patent law even applicable?

It is if you try to buy or sell something in the US and get caught.

Even if you buy something and don't realize it, the goods can get confiscated and then you're recourse is to take civil action against the seller.

I'm no lawyer. But, that's my understanding anyway. Leupold deals with that constantly with Chinese knockoff scopes. ...although, they brazenly use the Leupold name and trademarks as well.
