Jason Paylor and patents

from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Jason Paylor, 17, had been working on a patent to keep police officers cool under their bulletproof vests before he was gunned down outside his Wilkinsburg home 2 October 2010.

The junior attending Wilkinsburg High School had been a key member of a chemistry team that developed a method for cooling the heavy vests police officers wear without adding a lot of weight, said Lawson Shaw, technology technician at the school, who has been working with the students. Their invention won a design competition at the University of Pittsburgh in February, and the students are trying to obtain a patent for the idea.
