<h3>Designing of the mechanics --- Մեխանիկական մասի նախագծում</h3>

too much time to master it. So I switched to <a href="https://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/students-teachers-educators">Fusion 360</a>. I decided to have two worm gear
transmission since it can lock the mechanism.
I thought locking will be good because in case of a wind the system will turn back and forth.

<h1>Intellectual property, and Income --- Մտավոր սեփականություն և եկամուտ</h1>
</header>
<!-- <span class="image main"><img src="../images/" alt="" /></span> -->

<h2>Introduction --- Ներածություն</h2>
<p>For this week we had to:
<br>develop a plan for dissemination of your final project
<br>prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920x1080)
<br>and video clip (presentation.mp4, 1080p HTML5, < ~minute, < ~10 MB) and put them in your
root directory </p> <p>During this week I have learned a lot about IP, innovation,
invention, accelerators, incubators and income.
</p>
<p> The invention process is a process within an overall engineering and product development
process.
It may be an improvement upon a machine or product or a new process for creating an object or a
result.
</p>
<p>Some inventions can be patented. A patent legally protects the intellectual property rights of
the inventor and legally recognizes that a claimed invention is actually an invention. The rules
and requirements for patenting an invention vary from country to country and the process of
obtaining a patent is often expensive.
</p>
<ul>There are three types of inventions:
<li>Scientific-technological</li>
<li>Sociopolitical and humanistic</li>
<li>Cultural.</li>
</ul>
<p>Innovation are often viewed as the application of improved solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs.
Such innovation takes place through the provision of more-effective products, processes, services, technologies, or business models that are made available to markets, governments and society. An innovation is something original and more effective and, as a consequence, new, that "breaks into" the market or society. Innovation is related to, but not the same as, invention, as innovation is more apt to involve the practical implementation of an invention to make a meaningful impact in the market or society, and not all innovations require an invention.
</p>
<p>Every invention generally starts out as an inventor’s trade secret. Before inventors market their inventions, they need to secure one or more of the other forms of intellectual property protection – patents, trademarks and copyrights.
</p>
<ul>The four types of intellectual property include:
<li>Trade Secrets</li>
<li>Trademarks</li>
<li>Copyrights</li>
<li>Patents.</li>
</ul>
<p>Income is money that an individual or business receives in exchange for providing a good or service or through investing capital. Income is used to fund day-to-day expenditures. In businesses, income can refer to a company's remaining revenues after paying all expenses and taxes. In this case, income is referred to as "earnings.” Most forms of income are subject to taxation.

<h2>Code Editing Software</h2>
<p>The next step was to choose code editor in order to customize the website.
I tried to play with html before and used <a href="https://notepad-plus-plus.org/">Notepad++</a> but after I was
introduced to <a href="https://code.visualstudio.com/">Visual Studio Code</a> a week ago I realized that I was
wasting so much time by refreshing the browser and jumping from one file to another. It has live preview so
whenever you make a change it automatically updates the preview page on the browser, it has useful and
customizable keyboard shortcuts for almost any action and it has folder loading capability that’s very useful. So
I will never go back to Notepad++ for web development work.</p>
