In the dictionary, the words "concoct," "dream up," "devise," "fabricate," and "formulate," all are used to describe an inventor, something Robert Pearson of Chino Valley has been since the age of 12.

"My dad was an engineer for Boeing, and he and I always built things together. After I got out of the Navy in 1982, I went to a college for engineering, kind of an inventor's school," said Robert.

"It has always been my dream to make reliable free energy for people in disasters, survival situations and for the third world countries, to help kids in those countries in school," he added.

Robert has invented many items over the years, such as his "Chip Shot" which is a little indoor portable golf range, also his "My-Cold-Air" a mini portable AC unit for cars and RV's.

"After getting out of the military my vocation was building swimming pools, but I also just kept hammering away at little inventor ideas. My dad advised me to take my ideas, put a plan on paper. and keep trying until I got it right," Robert recalled.

Robert moved to Chino Valley three years ago because he wanted a uiet, old fashioned peaceful place to work.

He has now invented the Go-Gen Emergency Survival Generator

"This machine basically is a hand crank combined with a solar 12 volt high amp generator and charger station," explained Robert.

"This Go-Gen generator could have been very useful to those in Hurricane Sandy who needed to charge cell phones, and run lights at night. This product is great for hunters, campers, fisherman, Search and Rescue etc. For example if you get stranded in your car, the Go-Gen will maintain your cell phone, run LED lighting, and charge your car battery. The total cost is $330 which includes everything," he said.

Robert shared that the number one thing he enjoys about inventing is that when he sees a problem that is hurting people he can find a way to help.

"It's not about the money," said Robert.

" It is knowing that when God puts something like this on your heart, before you leave this world, you did something about it."

Robert can be reached at 928-237-5442 or go on-line to Emergency Survival
