Because of your donations Bishop received a patent on 4/10/2018. He is one step closer to his mission to end hot car deaths. THANK YOU! *
To Donate to support his manufacturing efforts click here: Manufacturing Oasis
WHY BISHOP STARTED HIS MISSION: I am Bishop's dad ( Bishop Curry, IV ) I set up this GoFund me to help my son Bishop, V raise the funds needed for his invention to go from concept to creation. We live in Texas where hot car deaths are far too common. Bishop already has a provisional patent and a 3D model of his invention. Based on guidance from our legal team $20K is the minimum that it will take to help Bishop complete his journey to save lives. ALL of the funds that you donate will go towards the attorney fees needed to finalize the patent, protoyping fees, and to help identify a manufacturer.
Bishop is a 5th grader who is fascinated with making things. From creating a home-made catapult and ping pong ball cannon, to thinking of ways to melt ice and snow on roads without using salt.
His latest idea is getting more attention - a car seat that can help prevent hot car deaths in children.
"I made a clay prototype and the invention's name is Oasis," Curry said.
Saddened by a hot car death of a 6-month-old named Fern in his town, Bishop aspires to build a device that will detect when a child has been left inside a hot vehicle and alert parents to the child's situation. The device will also come with the technology to help cool down the child while he or she waits to be rescued.
