About Innovation Institute

Innovation Institute ™developed the world’s largest known patent applications. Many of Steven’s electronic invention concepts are adopted worldwide.

Inventions range from A to Z. “A” for automatic adaptation, to “Z” for zoological monitoring and environmental protection.  Steven invented an adaptive language which quickens the time to develop electronic invention concepts. Innovation Institute offers free electronic patent rights to worthy international causes.


On the spiritual side, Innovation Institute is remotely similar to Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California; Spirit Rock in Wood Acre, California; Omega Institute in New York; and the former Harbin Hot Springs in Middletown, Lake County. Innovation Institute founded by Steven Kays in 1984 is tied with Mensa and Creative Philosopher Club.

Steven is in his mid 50’s. He grew up mostly in Japan, being raised by his European mother, while his father worked for the US Embassy. Steve is curious how culture influences closed mindedness, and conceived 1987’s bestseller “Closing of the American” mind, though his University of Chicago professor only gave indirect credit. Steven also makes innovative strides with Japanese Zen ideas.
