Welcome to Tovi Sciences.
The following is a partial list of work by futurist Murray Tovi covering approximately thirty years. It is accessed by clicking on the relevant icon on the main page. The thread that connects all the work is a lack of formal training.
Concepts and Technologies
1970 Tovibulbs. The first two-way mirror light bulbs. Transformed lighting fixtures into sculptures. Used globally by every major lighting fixture manufacturer. Several awards granted for use by architects, illuminating engineers, lighting designers, etc.
1975 The Task Energy Habitat. U.S. Patent 29735 Reissue. An energy and material conserving home of the future. First prototype saved 65% in energy and 85% in materials with no loss in comfort or dignity. Based on a ceiling suspended portable payload of HVAC, lighting and sound equipment “flown” to hover over area in current use in open multi-functional environment.
1976 The MTDI Discreet Surveillance System. U.S. Patent 4,225,88l. Based on a beam/splitter that transmits six times more light than a conventional two-way mirror. Glass capsules so coated completely hide sophisticated video camera equipment. The system, used globally, revolutionized the industry.
1976 The Discriminate Extinguishing System. U.S. Patent 4,112,486. A unique liquid conveyor combined with video and infra-red detectors that stops fires from growing with a minimum of water and/or foam.
1985 Functional Energy Art. A body of work pitting art against design in illuminating space. It incorporates five new technologies adaptable to virtually every lighting need. For example one technology involves multi-colored neon in the form of abstract sculptures that recombine the spectrum after the colored light diffuses off the walls and furniture replicating white light in any desired chromatic configuration. Configurations such as fluorescent cool or warm, incandescent, sunlight, etc. The work was the subject of a documentary aired on KRDO-TV Colorado Springs. It also formed the basis for seminars, accredited by ASID (The American Society of Interior Designers). The next phase in its development is a traveling seminar planned for 2004. It is also the subject of an article published in Extrophy: The Journal for Transhumanist Solutions in April of 2002. Recent article in Extrophy Magazine
1988 The Transflector. U.S. Patent 4,112,486 A two-way mirror that reflects a metallized three-dimensional embedded surface but has no distortion in transmission (see-through). The first products to be introduced in 2003 are sunglasses with lenses that reflect gold coins and are indistinguishable from the original coin. The executive editor and publisher of Vogue in a 1990 meeting believed, when ready, that the technology will revolutionize the stagnant 3 billion dollar fashion eyewear industry.
1989 The Zeroflector. US Patent. An optical device that bypasses the melt process in making transparent colored glass avoiding the use of toxic chemicals such as cadmium, etc.
1989 The Photoflector. U.S. Patent 4,934,792. A beam/splitter that reflects a paper quality colored image indistinguishable from the original photo, painting, silk-screen, etc. without distortion in transmission (see-through). The first application is planned for 2004. See Tovi Sciences Invisible Surveillance System.
2000 An Introduction to Neo-Classical Physics. The development of a modified Newtonian discipline based on the discovery of an invisible force everywhere in the sky.
