Trevor Baylis of Bailis brands and friend of ACID brand who was rightly awarded a CBE by her Majesty in the New Year Honours and all at ACID send him warmest wishes.
Trevor’s remarks are testament to his dedication to help inventors and raise awareness about the value of intellectual property and creative thinking. He is a true champion and pioneer for intellectual property with a jot of irony and a wicked sense of humour!
“As they say, art is pleasure, invention is treasure, and this nation has got to recognise that. If they can spend a fortune on dead sheep and formaldehyde, then it can spend a bit more of that money on inventors.” Commented Trevor Baylis.
Trevor Graham Baylis is an English inventor. He is best known for inventing the wind-up radio. Rather than using batteries or external electrical source, the radio is powered by the user winding a crank for several seconds. This stores energy in a spring which then drives an electrical generator to operate the radio receiver. He even invented it in response to the need to communicate information about AIDS to the people of Africa.
“Best known for his wind-up radios, Trevor is a larger than life character and a person who can be guaranteed to speak his mind. This Kat congratulates Trevor on his fresh honour and adds that, whatever you may think about him (and whatever you may think about some of the pretty frank criticisms he has made of the IP system over the years), he has the distinction of being a person who cares and who gets up off his backside and actually does things.” Commented by ACID Team.
