Joe Engle '08Joe Engle '08 wanted to watch hockey games from the enjoyment of his family's backyard deck. So he put his innovation skills to work and has invented a business called Rain Case, that allows flat-screen televisions to move outdoors.  His creative approach is both weather and insect resistant and can be safely installed on a universal mount for the appropriate size television. It’s also equipped with a lockable latch to provide security for the TV inside.

Rain Case is built with painted powdered aluminum on the back and sides of the TV, with sealed holes in the back for cords into and out of the TV. The front of the enclosure is a removable cover, so when it’s time to watch TV the viewer is watching the actual screen, not a screen filtered through a plastic cover.

Engle graduated from Kettering University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a management minor. He is currently a graduate student in Kettering’s MBA program.
