In universities across the country, the notion of student-owned and -generated patents is fairly unique. But UNLV's Center for Gaming Innovation created an incubator for both undergraduate and graduate student ideas. The collaborative relationship demonstrates the university's dedication to protecting students' intellectual property while offering them a unique learning experience. The center is responsible for filing more than 40 patent applications—resulting in eight issued patents and seven commercialized products since its inception in fall 2013.

The stories below represent a handful of CGI's major success stories. The center, made possible by a grant from the Governor's Office of Economic Development, is part of UNLV's International Gaming Institute.
