Cap Lamp: U.S. Patent # 6,056,413
The Cap Lamp was the winner of the personal electronics category of "Search for Invention 2000," a national invention competition between hundreds of patented entries. The contest was sponsored by Hammacher Schlemmer.
The Cap Lamp is a baseball cap with a hidden lighting system that illuminates whatever the wearer looks at. Lighting includes an angle-adjustable krypton spotlight and optional red illumination for night-vision adaptation. An ideal personal lighting solution for sportsmen, joggers and other outdoorsmen. When operating in white-light mode, the Cap Lamp provides functionally advantaged hands-free lighting for home-users, tradesmen, and for automobile maintenance.
This is an exceptionally easy-to-produce product and at a low cost. The lighting system can be incorporated in conventional baseball-style caps during or after assembly.
In addition to sales stemming from the personal lighting advantages, the esthetically pleasing Cap Lamp is an ultimate promotional product -- it attracts numerous inquiries when worn in public. Heads turn and onlookers want to know where they can get the product.
