It started when I found myself muting every television commercial. As an electrical engineer I created, tested, and developed an electronic device that automatically blocked the sound and put up a black-box on the television screen during commercial advertisements. Several units were built and sold. Sales were doing quite well. As digital video recorders (DVRs) became more ubiquitous, the need for a commercial blocking device became less needed as DVRs can skip past commercials. Therefore, I made the decision to stop production of the device which was called the TVBlanket. The name originally stood for throwing a “blanket” over the TV during commercials.
During this business adventure I learned quite a bit about everything and anything related to television. I started writing articles and ideas about television and improving home entertainment. The site did well and had thousands of visitors a month.
I noticed several visitors were searching for blankets and came to my site expecting to buy one. I asked my mom (who is an awesome seamstress) to help me come up with some ideas for blankets with a foot pocket since most blankets always end up leaving my feet hanging out. She came up with the idea to make the foot pocket in such a way to turn it into a pillow... and the TV Blanket was born!
