Inspired by: After looking into some investigation results of aircraft crashes a relatively simple solution popped-up in my mind, to create a device which sees through the clouds for pilots.
I did some research and was amazed that tis technology doesn't exist for commercial aircrafts.
I put my engineering skills to work, created a feasibility study which ended with a low range working prototype.
Most people who heard about my idea thought it's a bold one, and were a bit skeptic, but after completing the working prototype they were amazed by the potential of the product to save lives.
