Robert G. Wajda – CIRCA 2017

Robert G. Wajda, born February 1, 1968, is an American inventor and entrepreneur who specializes as a product visionary for innovations geared toward the future. Early on in his career, a passion emerged for the development of specific inventions that evolved to imitate phenomena found in natural environments. Finding a way to harness these marvels was the ultimate challenge for him when trying to recreate these occurrences from an engineering standpoint.

Mr. Wajda has always drafted his own innovative ideas and concepts right from the start on standard drawing tables. Considering this aspect of innovation an essential part of an inventor’s life, his ideas throughout the years consistently flowed from thought-provoked visions onto the drafting tables naturally. Academic and apprenticeship training in mechanical and industrial drafting provided a unique grasp for him of the earlier techniques that many 1900 patent renderings depict. Training in Computer Animated Design (CAD) also contributed to Mr. Wajda’s skills in transforming his ideas into 3D, providing a transition into the modern design capabilities of the 21st century.

From Sketch to Ink

Mr. Robert Wajda sketches all drawings in pencil and then transfers them to permanent Indian Ink for a superior finish

The old-school approach of designing all his products in pencil with a drafting board and machine arm, ultimately securing them in permanent Indian ink, allows more creative thought processes to flow in and out of freehand drafting. The decision-making and drafting process is measured, producing superior products once the drawings are finalized and lifted from the table. This specialized form of drafting pushes Mr. Wadja’s projects to the next level, shaping them tangibly with thick hand-drawn lines from the beginning.

When creating renderings on a drawing board, large 18” x 24” vellum paper is positioned at a 45-degree angle. This specific angle enables the drawings to appear close to his favored visual perception, allowing creativity to flow more readily. Visual perception is key to why many artists and painters have worked from easels and drawing boards for centuries. People will always continue to study and refer to previous patent drawings for reference and detail. The quest for innovation inevitably begins with a simplistic starting point, even as the future approaches with generations more dependent on the aid of technology. 

Lessons from the Past

As Wajda examined and studied prior art of patent drawings of the past and present, he noticed distinct differences between the early 1900s renderings and today’s work. Most of today’s draftsman create a “stick type drawing” and many patent drawings of today are of low quality.

Wajda immediately knew he wanted to take a “time machine” back and design all his ideas as they did in the early 20th century. When he sees drawings by inventors like Leonardo DaVinci, Nicola Tesla, Thomas Edison, Archimedes, James Watts, Chester Carlson, George Westinghouse, and Alexander Graham Bell, he can almost feel the inventors going through the mental processes of drawing needed to create exceptional works. For Wajda, concentration and thick straight lines provided real-life nostalgic-looking drawings that bring out the best in his creativity. Wajda feels the quality of these early patent drawings are masterpieces among themselves.

Wajda could investigate the drawings of the late 1800s to early 1900s and visualize the ink strokes as they placed their ink pens on the paper. He could see minor mistakes that were covered up. With ink, you only have one chance to get it right, so you generally do the most difficult part first with lots of patience.

Problem-solving never ceases to exist, even while we are asleep. When the human brain thinks about something on a consistent basis, realities begin to unfold. Wajda can analyze product simulations hundreds or even thousands of times before a single pen stroke on paper. A talent some of the greatest inventors of all time, such as Nicola Tesla were able to perform. This has always been natural for Wajda. 

Wajda is one of the few modern inventors who use the same innovation and drafting techniques as many great inventors of the past. Back then, these inventors were fascinated with learning. Many of them have read every book on every subject they could get their hands on. With Wajda, he researches and studies everything that is useful. He doesn’t read hundreds of books like they did back in the day, however, he uses the vast resources of the Internet to learn about everything he possibly can by watching documentaries and learning about new things. 

When Wajda starts a project or invention, he thinks about and dreams about the invention many times before he makes a single stroke of his pencil or pen on vellum paper. Since he knows about so many different topics, he plays every scenario in his mind while mentally prototyping. 

When you look at his drawings and say, “How did he figure that out and draw it on paper so easily?” The answer is simple, he has prototyped every possible scenario in his mind thousands of times over many years. 

Wajda believes this is a “common” but lost skill that every successful inventor of the past has also mastered. He once read once that Nicola Tesla had extraordinary thinking powers where he could play the prototype in his mind and prototype it before it was even made. Wajda believes he has a similar skill set and believes many people around the world are gifted with the same mental processing.
