We think that most people would want to invent something. Not only would it help them to earn some extra money but it is also is interesting to have your name attached to an invention that will be used by potentially millions of people. The problem with inventions is that it is difficult to know where to begin.
The first step of the process would be coming up with an idea for an invention and from that point forward you would simply need to follow through. This would include everything from getting a patent on the product to finding out how to mass-produce it and to test the market to make sure that it is worthy of your attention.
Sometimes the most difficult part is knowing where to begin. An idea for invention often comes to people out of the blue as many of them would let you know. I know that any ideas that I ever had for inventions came to me when I least expected it. There were times, of course, where the idea stemmed from necessity because of something that I was doing. For the most part, however, the idea for invention simply came to me whenever I was sitting idle or perhaps even while I was sleeping.
If you are having a hard time coming up with an idea for an invention but you have a strong desire to be part of one then here are some suggestions to help you get started. It is not always necessary to reinvent the wheel so you might want to begin looking for your idea for invention by looking at things that you commonly use.
There is an expression about building a better mousetrap and this is typically what you are going to be trying to do. It is not always necessary for your idea to be totally new or unique. A simple twist on an existing idea or product provided it is unique enough not to violate any patents, will certainly be usable by some people enough that it can be considered a new invention.
Once you have your idea for an invention then you need to go about getting it down on paper and seeing if it is something that is worthy of your attention. There are companies out there that will help you through the entire process of patenting your invention and getting it in front of the people that would be interested in it.
