Welcome to the Southern California Inventors Forum, one of the largest inventors’ groups in the United States.  We were formed over 20 years ago as a small group of inventors, and are now a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  With over 500 members, we help inventors learn how to research, develop and protect their inventions.  We offer valuable support and insight into ways to profit from their inventions through building their own business or licensing their inventions.

Mark the Date for the July Inventors Forum Speaker Series - July 14th - Friday 7:15 PM - 9:15 PM

Inventors Forum Speaker's Series

It's All A Game

Game Design from Board Games to AR/VR 

Come learn what it takes to create a winning game, and the way that game design has changed, and stayed the same, through the years.  Roger Yanagita is a member of the Inventors Forum, who has invented classic board games. William Fisher  a first generation video game programmer, is currently creating geolocational AR mobile games, and William Volk worked at Activision during the classic video gaming period and is now pioneering VR games and others that can even be played on the Apple Watch.  

Where are games headed and what do they have in common throughout the years?  Where are the new opportunities?  Are board games dead, or in a new Renaissance?

Come and bring your friends to this free presentation at UCI's wonderful Applied Innovation center.
