Our client, Dr. Shirish Yograj Khedikar, scientist at Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Pune, recently filed a record ten (10) patent applications in a single day with the Indian Patent Office.The inventions relate to various fields of application solving day-to-day problems.
Dr. Khedikar is extremely fond of innovating and being associated with IMD presented him a unique set of opportunities to come out with various technical solutions, as well as seek adequate protection on his innovations. As per Dr. Khedikar, nine out of these ten inventions are related to the sky, air, fire, water and earth elements. Most of these machines have been successfully tested as well.
The inventions on which patent application has been filed broadly cover the following areas:
- Device for recording wind attributes
