SAN ANTONIO, TX, April 12, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Meet inventor Mark Sullivan of San Antonio, Texas. In the near future, this humble yet brilliant genius may be recognized as Leonardo da Vinci's 21st-century protege if his mind-boggling new energy inventions can secure the necessary funding to be built. In 2012, that investment dream just might come true.
This April, Mark will be introduced to a panel of five wealthy business people ("Sharks") as a guest on Shark Tank, ABC's hit reality TV series. He was chosen from over 24,000 applicants to pitch his patented electric generator that harnesses energy from the spin of the Earth. The episode featuring Mark airs this Friday, April 13, 2012, at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. Central) on ABC.
During every episode, the Sharks actively look for the best product and business proposals in America by listening to aspiring entrepreneurs talk about their ideas and how much funding they need to launch their concepts. Mark Burnett, Clay Newbill and Phil Gurin are the executive producers of Shark Tank, based on the Japanese Dragons Den format created by Nippon Television Network Corporation. The series is from Sony Pictures Television. Season Three of Shark Tank makes TV history as these venture capitalists will offer $6.2 million of their own money to finance projects associated with the show.
A prolific inventor, Mark holds 36 separate claims on innovative technology which can be used to produce electric energy cheaply, in massive quantities, and in environments all over the planet. This revolutionary generator marks the first time in mankind's history that energy can be captured from the constant rotation of the Earth. Simply explained, this invention creates electricity from saltwater, brackish or industrial waste water. Byproducts from the process include fresh, clean water and valuable mineral precipitates, like gold and manganese.
"There is an unequal distribution of resources on Earth. If my energy invention is properly funded, all that can change on our planet," Mark says. "Every country which has enough of these generators could become energy independent and raise the standard of living for their citizens. This generator is a technological advancement representing a genuine legacy of goodness for the world."
To date, over 1,000 of Mark's inventions have been brought to life. For example, he has designed biomedical devices for cosmetic surgery, nephrology, cardiology, sports medicine and dentistry clients. However, hundreds more of his ideas remain "on the drawing board" until proper funding comes through.
Not surprisingly, this degreed molecular biologist, biomedical engineer and artist also is a life member of American MENSA, the high I.Q. society for geniuses. He has designed special effects for over 100 projects (including major feature films), won engineering awards, and had his work published in various scientific papers. Locally, in the Alamo City, Sullivan has designed several large-scale civic projects, including the Bike S.A. system, the San Antonio Film District, and currently "Texposition" a technologically advanced world fair for San Antonio.
Mark is now actively seeking patrons and partners willing to fund development of his inventions, many of which could solve complex problems afflicting humanity. For more info about the pioneering electric generator and Mark's other inventions, visit www.marksullivanresearch.com
