During the summer before his freshman year at Oxbridge, Andrew Dagher, '23, began developing an idea for a "metabolic charging apparatus" that produces an electric current. In essence, he explains, "It is a device that takes the body heat emitted from your hand, for example, and turns it into an electrical current that can be used to charge any device ... you could be holding your phone and charging it or sitting in the seat of a Tesla and using the current from your body heat to charge the car."
By the end of his first semester at Oxbridge he had signed multiple contracts with the Florida Institute of Technology to produce a prototype and conduct additional research. Additionally, he established an LLC for his three current patents as well as any future patents to be issued. Currently, he is working on nine other patents for various companies, including Proctor & Gamble, a parent company that owns some of the biggest household brands in the world.
Though he cannot reveal much about the new patents he has applied for, Dagher named the P&G brands that will roll out new products "if my next patent applications are successful." They include: Ariel, Bounce, Downy, Tide, Gain, Febreze Gillette, Venus, Head & Shoulders, Old Spice, Pantene, Cascade, Mr. Clean, Crest, Oral B, Scope, and Olay. As for his next steps, Dagher says, "I plan on attending college and will most likely major in finance or take a double major in business and engineering."
