Technology Associates Inc.(remembered)
The EternaLight assets of Technology Associates, Inc.
have been transfered to EternaLights, LLC. All orders and services issues will be handled by them.

In 1992, Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson founded Technology Associates. In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name of Technology Associates, Inc. Between 1993 and 2000, Technology Associates successfully operated a small chain of computer stores in the Reno/Sparks area which sold and serviced computers.
Technology Associates was also one of the founding investors in Great Basin Internet Services (GBIS), Northern Nevada's Largest Independent internet service provider. In 1998, TA divested itself of GBIS. In 2000, TA divested itself of it's retail stores to pursue manufacturing of the EternaLight flashlight and other related and unrelated products developed by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson. In 2007, the organization formerly known as Technology Associates, Inc., founded by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson in 1992 ceased to exist.

This site is still a functioning sales platform for the EternaLight products manufactured and sold by EternaLights, LLC. However, the remainder of the site remains as it was in it's finality before the closing of Technology Associates, Inc.

Today Mr. Bryson is privately employed as a Software Engineer. Mr. Hoops is privately employed in a manufacturing company as it's CTO. After working together since 1990, through their various projects and partnerships, Mr. Hoops and Mr. Bryson are still best friends and continue to explore new opportunities together.

This is the one UNCLE SAM doesn't want you to know about! If you're a model hobbyist who always wanted to add FIREPOWER to your toys, these plans are for YOU!

This amazing project will take you into the world of futuristic weaponry! It can be made incredibly small, using as little as two AA batteries for power yet pack an amazing amount of force. Add guns to your model boats, planes, cars, whatever!

Three easy to build projects one of which can have you silently firing BB's in as little as 30 minutes. Imagine making a small electronic device capable of hurling a steel BB at amazing velocities from just a 1 inch soda straw, making almost no noise when fired. And, it can be fired entirely under electronic control. No springs, explosive chemicals, NO MOVING PARTS - except the projectile! Very educational, same principle can be used to develop larger weapons with deadly force. Electronics experience necessary. Must be over 18 years of age to order.

Imagine SIMPLE, INEXPENSIVE, yet COMPLETE Home Automation and Security System from any PC!


Now HOME AUTOMATION is truly AFFORDABLE! Much more than just a X10 timer with a computer interface, the Introl-PC senses and makes decisions too!

Imagine security, convenience, safety, energy management controlled by your computer that you program within your own home. You can build it in as little as one evening at an unbelievable low cost. The system can be wireless, hardwired or a combination thereof. Once you live in a SMART HOUSE, you'll never want to be without it. Complete plans and powerful software along with source code for writing your own control software. Electronics experience necessary.

The INTROL-PC is one of the most versatile and least expensive INTELLIGENT control systems you can buy today. Unlike other systems which are very specialized and cost many thousands of dollars, the INTROL-PC can use inexpensive PC compatible computers which are widely available for as little as $500.00 or even less! Although this combination is by comparison very inexpensive, the versatility and power is truly remarkable! As a sensing intelligent controller, the INTROL-PC can serve many useful and money saving functions in your daily life. For example, the INTROL-PC can turn off your heating and AC after you leave for work and back on when you return. When you've been away, the INTROL-PC can greet you by turning on your porch and inside lights, then toning them down after you've settled in -- all automatically or at the push of a button. It can start your coffee in the morning and keep you from bumping into things at night by sensing your motion and turning on the appropriate lights at the proper time of night. It can control your sprinkler system more efficiently than your current controller during water restrictions -- or water based on soil moisture.

These are among the simplest applications of the INTROL-PC, the true power of this device lies in your ingenuity and imagination to apply it to your needs!

The INTROL-PC consists of a hardware interface (that you can construct for less than $150.00) and powerful, easy-to-use, software to provide intelligence. The interface connects an ordinary PC compatible computer to the outside world, allowing sensing of motion, door openings, and more as well as control of lights, appliances, etc. throughout your home.
