Invention for Wheelchairs

Mr. Daniel Mills,who lives near Domino's Pizza on Newton Sparta Road, invented an inexpensive device to help motorize wheelchairs. Your host met Mr. Mills while shopping at Home Depot. Turns out Mr. Mills bought about $6 worth of parts at Home Depot to create his prototype. This is an interestings story! The video is temporarily down, but you can email Mr. Mills HERE.
I was shopping at Home Depot (In Newton, NJ), when I saw a man in a wheelchair whiz by me ... obviously on a mission of some importance. The thing that caught my eye, was his normal folding wheelchair seemed to be scooting along with only a very small electric scooter under it ... propelling it with ease. I stopped him and talked a bit with him. Seems his invention is patented and is being shopped out to buyers who will take it to manufacture and to market. That will mean a lot of people will get to make use of the very simple, yet compelling device that easily attaches to most wheelchairs.

1756 With The Frontier Guard

This film was made 250 years ago and was only recently rediscovered in the ancient files of EGGZONO Cable-TV archives. Look for more special histories soon. This film temporarily down to clean the film and re-splice it.


At last a place where volunteer tv producers can present features for NW New Jersey. Over 2/3 of the people in Sussex County NJ do NOT have Cable-TV having found Satellite much more useful. The local cable company does not support any efforts to offer public access TV. If you do have Cable-TV, the local community college airs programs on channel 20. Look for some ineresting programs there. These are a good effort and worthy of your attention. Essentially however, the people of this area are restricted to commercial presentations from their cable company with no other way to provide them with informative local television. EGGZONO Cable-TV solves the problem! Now anyone with web access, can pick up on local news information on any schedule they choose!

Welcome Northwest New Jersey!
