Dennis Fountaine is a technologist and entrepreneurial inventor. He has been conceptualizing, researching, developing and licensing new products and technologies since 1984.
Mr. Fountaine's first claim to fame came instantly at his birth when he was born a triplet and his parents had just had twin boys six years earlier. Since this was such a rare event, it put him and his triplet brother and sister on the cover of newspapers world-wide.
He grew up on Long Island where he discovered his love of film and television production while attending Syosset High School (1972-1975). He worked on the very first video program funded by a grant from the New York Board of Education. Mr. Fountaine was also one of the first Disc Jockeys on the air at the brand new high school radio station, WKWZ FM.
After high school, Dennis Fountaine attended Syracuse University (1975-1979), where he majored in Film and Television Production at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
While at Syracuse, Mr. Fountaine was also employed at WSYR TV, WAER FM and the Synapse Video & Post Production Center. Additionally, Mr. Fountaine met and befriended Syracuse Alumni, NBC Network Chief, Fred Silverman who encouraged him to pursue the creative end of television.
Mr. Fountaine took his advice and created and wrote a variety of notable pilots for both broadcast and cable, creating the Mini-Pilot Concept, whereby short scenes from the pilots would be produced and presented (Pitched) to the networks.
In 1979, Dennis Fountaine relocated to Seattle, Washington to form Friend's Media, a film and television production company created by him and organized with friends he met while attending Syracuse University.
From 1979-1984, Mr. Fountaine operated his independently owned video and film production company, producing award winning films, television commercials and music videos.

In 1985, the United States Military, based in Heidelberg, Germany, asked Mr. Fountaine to develop a method for helping the G.I. s to better communicate with friends and family back home, around the world.
It was then that Mr. Fountaine was 'bitten' by the Inventor's Bug as he developed the VIDEO CAPSULE, a fully automated, circular booth (think Photo-booth but with video), where the GI would, through a step-by-step, fully automated process, record their own personalized five-minute videotape.
During this period (1985-1991), Mr. Fountaine continued with his new found love of inventing while pursuing a number of film and television projects.
In 1991, convinced "inventing" was his true calling, Dennis Fountaine formed ROCKET SCIENCE LABS to conceive, research, develop, prototype, exploit and license his new product concepts.
ROCKET SCIENCE LABS (RSL Holdings, LLC.) became a renowned and award winning product development company, which specializes in the conception, research, development, marketing and licensing of new, innovative cutting-edge, consumer products. Rocket Science is always one step ahead, spotting new market trends right before they happen and creating products based on those trends.
Since then, Mr. Fountaine and ROCKET SCIENCE LABS have created a number of successful consumer products.
These products are quite diversified, ranging from food products (new Ice Cream Desserts) to automotive, consumer electronics, home entertainment, law enforcement/security products, award winning pet toys and products and cellular telephone based products.
In 1998, Mr. Fountaine created and developed the first Wireless Ear Piece for the Cellular industry.

Mr. Fountaine and Rocket Science Labs have also created and developed a new technology called Face Replacement, whereby a User's live, real-time video (as individuals or as groups) is electronically seamlessly placed over the face or body of an actor or cartoon character in iconic clips from famous movies, television programs, television commercials, animated features/cartoons, music videos and news/entertainment clips. This patented technology has been developed for both the Internet (Screen Test Studios) and Mobile (ME2MEDIA). Both versions have a Social Media aspect where Users can meet by appearing in the favorite clips together with friends, family or complete strangers from around the world.
Both new forms of Digital Entertainment whereby the user's live, real-time video replaces the faces of famous characters in a variety of applications, including Film, Television Programs, Cartoons, News & Entertainment Clips and Music Videos.

Dennis Fountaine is also researching and developing the next generation and evolution of entertainment devices based on the works and research of Dr. Josť Manuel Rodriguez Delgado, whereby viewers of entertainment media would experience and actually feel the emotions of the actors on screen via magnetic stimulation of the viewer's Brain.
Fountaine has also researched and theorized a new and innovative Cosmological Event One theory called The Cosmological Stack Theory, which goes beyond the Big Bang Theory and further explains the origins and synergies between our Universe and its place in the Cosmos.
Both Mr. Fountaine and ROCKET SCIENCE LABS will continue to conceptualize, invent, innovate, develop and research the technologies and products that will make our futures more exciting, entertaining and livable.
