Company finds offbeat inventions and puts them to use

SAN FRANCISCO – Sand that can’t get wet, intelligent rope and ink with a sense of smell were a few of the innovative products at a hands-on demonstration of new inventions at Real Estate Connect 2005 on Wednesday.

Keith Schacht, CEO of Inventables, and his partner Zach Kaplan, the company’s president, used video, slides and hands-on demonstrations – plus some performance art with an audience member – in their “Innovation in Action” session at the conference.
