Imagination Engines Launches New Web Site

I just noticed that Imagination Engines, founded by Steven Thaler, has launched a new web site. The company describes itself as follows:

Imagination Engines is a small company working with what many have recognized as potentially the biggest idea in history, a technology that can invent everything else. Accordingly, largely due to issues of credibility, the company's road to success has been rocky. There have been many skeptics and critics, but there have been more believers and supporters. Now the company thrives upon a significant contract stream and tangible products that speak louder for the technology than words possibly could.

I believe I first heard about the company when I read an article (such as this one) describing how the company had used its patented Creativity Machine to invent the Oral-B CrossAction toothbrush. Although genetic algorithms seem to be getting most of the attention these days, Imagination Engines' Creativity Machine relies on neural networks.
