What should you do when you have an invention idea?

As quickly as the idea has arisen, we are now assailed by doubts about what to do with the idea, how to make money from it, and not to be robbed in the attempt.

What should you do when you have an invention idea?

All these questions and many more will be resolved in this blog in which the team of The Factory of Inventions will publish tips and tricks that will help you to develop your invention turning it into a product of great consumption.

Therefore this manual is intended for all those people who have ever had an idea to improve a household utensil, create a new product on the safety of your children or a revolutionary technological idea.

As we always aim at inventors, they are all great ideas as long as they are useful for society.

From our experience and knowledge as a team of The Factory of Inventions, we will try to show you and present all the steps and tricks that must be followed to design, make the prototype, register the patent and sell the product, and we will answer all those questions that have the inventors have been doing throughout these years.

The section will be classified into four major sections:

• Design of your Product or Invention

• Make a prototype of your invention

• Patent your invention

• Sell your product

Ideas as a starting point

Today we are going to start at the beginning, not the beginning principle, but how you start in this of inventions. Products come from inventions; inventions arise from ideas and ideas of needs.

The thoughts may be of all kinds, many of them even are not feasible yet, due to the limitations of current technology and colonize space, and others simply seem absurd now we do not see its practical utility.

How do ideas arise?

The needs are what drive us to have ideas and society and technology allow us to disseminate them and realize them. But ... how do ideas arise? As I mentioned before, ideas arise from needs, these needs are in our daily life and in the world around us. Anyone can have an idea you only need to observe your environment well, from your work to your personal life. Not everything is invented; you can always improve and optimize things. A product that a customer demands and that does not exist, a process that can be simplified, even "domestic" solutions to a recurring problem, are examples of where ideas can arise.

When you have the idea the next step is to know if someone else has come up with that idea.

How do I convert an idea into an invention?

The idea is essential, but this is not everything. The idea is the beginning of a great adventure, in which we must work and invest to move forward. Ideas are a wonderful concept because they have a life of their own, they grow, they develop and they reproduce. An idea that at first was not very cool can develop into something incredible and unexpected or generate other ideas.

When that idea that comes to mind begins to materialize in industrial design, mature in an invention. I've talked to you before about what a conceptual design is, but not about how you can make an idea grow.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
