Queensland Day is coming up on the 6th June. It is an opportunity to commemorate the state’s culture, heritage, people, places and industry. The date marks the official separation from New South Wales as an independent colony on 6 June 1859.
For our international friends, the state of Queensland is located in the northeast of Australia, taking up an area of 1.853 million km² and has a population of over 5 million people. At MBIP we are lucky to have our office based in Red Hill, Queensland.
Queensland is home to the Daintree Rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef and we even have a slice of the Simpson Desert. Our coastline of beautiful beaches coupled with our warmer weather is why our beloved part of the country is often referred to as the ‘Sunshine State”.
On top of all this natural beauty, our state has been responsible for some truly amazing innovations. We thought we would highlight just a few inventions (out of the many hundreds) that we’ve had the honour of helping protect by providing our IP rights skills and expertise. The following innovative businesses also happen to make us proud to be part of such a diverse and inventive region.
The Monchball is a safe, treat-securing technology device that protects your dog from choking. It was designed in a shape and size that discourages your dogs from being able to chew on the ball itself and clamps on to a number of long last chew treats. The purpose of the Monchball is to give your pet a tasty treat while preventing them from swallowing the final portion which is usually choking hazard size. Inventors Claire and Bart have protected their pet-friendly product by filing a patent application and design registration.
A customisable personal sound delivery system, Audeara headphones measure your hearing to tailor the sound perfectly for you. Since each of us hears differently, with your right ear registering sounds differently to your left, Audeara’s app charts these differences, creating a unique hearing profile, which is programmed into your headphones. Audeara sought patent protection before disclosing their product and launching their first crowdfunding campaign in March 2017.
