U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez Unveils National Campaign to Inspire Invention in Children The Advertising Council joined with the Department of Commerces United States Patent and Trademark Office USPTO and the National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation NIHFF today to launch a national, multimedia public service advertising PSA campaign to engage a new generation of children in innovation. The campaign seeks to make inventing and developing new ideas part of American childrens lives. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Carlos M. Gutierrez unveiled the campaign at the National Press Club. For generations, the United States has been a recognized global leader in technology and innovation. While the country represents only 5 percent of the world's population, it accounts for nearly one third of the worlds science and engineering researchers and 40 percent of all research and development, according to the Council on Competitiveness. However, with increased economic competition globally, its widely recognized that the United States must take steps now to maintain its leadership. In particular, America must ensure we inspire future generations of innovators. The new Inspiring Invention campaign, created in conjunction with ad agency Publicis & Hal Riney in San Francisco, aims to inspire children specifically the tweens, ages 8 to 11 to recognize how their imaginations can lead to the technological advances of the future. The campaign communicates that there is a role for every kind of unique curiosity and imaginative idea as it relates to invention. Ultimately, the goal is to motivate children to pursue inventing and innovating as part of their educations and, later, in their careers. Secretary Gutierrez said, In an innovation driven economy, the key to our future success and competitiveness lies in making sure we are sharing Americas culture of innovation with our young people. In doing so, we will prepare them to compete more effectively in the global marketplace and ensure that the United States maintains our global economic leadership. Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO Jon Dudas added, We see the Inspiring Invention campaign as a wonderful opportunity to show kids how fun and rewarding it can be to create. We hope that children who watch these ads will want to become more inventive; explore math, science and other creative fields; and then share their new ideas to continue Americas legacy of innovation. Developed with extensive research with inventors and children, the campaign includes new television, radio, outdoor and Web advertising that feature ordinary children creating inventions to solve everyday problems. The PSAs communicate to children that anything is possible and encourage them to keep thinking. The ads direct audiences to visit a new comprehensive website, www.InventNow****, to explore and discover their own innate inventiveness and curiosity. Designed by VPI Visual Perspectives Internet, the site features interactive games and allows children to explore their inventive interests in space, sports, design and entertainment. Research conducted for our new campaign found that children are naturally curious and inventive, but they do not realize the impact of their creativity, according to Peggy Conlon, President & CEO of the Ad Council. We are proud to join with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation on this wonderful effort to help children see that there are no limits to their creativity and imagination and that they can have a role in the technological advances of our future if they just keep thinking. The Inspiring Invention campaign is one of several educational initiatives in which the National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation and the United States Patent and Trademark Office partner to encourage children to think inventively. Among these initiatives are the National Inventors Hall of Fames Camp Invention and Club Invention programs, which are supported by the USPTO. Camp Invention, now in its 17th year, is a summer day camp that fosters creativity and inventive thinking skills that allow children to learn through hands on activities, subject immersion and discovery. In 2007, more than 60,000 students will attend Camp Invention in 47 states. Club Invention is an after school program directed by the Hall of Fame that extends scientific inquiry based education to after school sites. National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductee and inventor of the modern microphone Dr. James West said, This campaign relates directly to our mission of inspiring invention and creativity. Its a prime opportunity for us to capture the attention of children and share with them the wonders of science and technology, inspiring them enough to become involved in life ong endeavors in these fields. Our future, and theirs, will be much richer because of it. We are honored to have been chosen to create a campaign with the important objective of engaging a generation of kids to make innovation and creativity an integral part of their lives, said Karen Francis, CEO at Publicis & Hal Riney. The work shows real kids creating and building incredibly innovative solutions to their problems. We hope that this campaign will help kids realize that they have the power and imagination to invent something totally new. The PSAs are being distributed to 28,000 media stations nationwide this week. Per the Ad Councils donated media model, all of the new PSAs will air and run in advertising time and space donated by the media.

AMO's Advanced CustomVue™ LASIK with the IntraLase® Method Proves Ready for the Rigors of Space Travel Advanced Medical Optics, Inc. (AMO) (NYSE: EYE), a global leader in ophthalmic surgical devices and eye care products, today announced that the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) has approved the company's LASIK technologies for use on U.S. astronauts. The NASA decision was made following review of extensive military clinical data using AMO's Advanced CustomVue™ LASIK with the IntraLase® Method, which showed the combination of technologies provides superior safety and vision. Approved for use on consumers almost a decade ago, more than 11 million LASIK procedures have been performed to-date, making it the most-common elective surgical procedure in the U.S. But it wasn't until LASIK developed into an all-laser procedure that NASA approved it for use on pilots, mission and payload specialists who face extreme, physically demanding conditions in space. The all-laser LASIK technologies, which utilize wavefront guided and femtosecond lasers, have also been cleared for U.S. military personnel, including most recently Air Force pilots.
