So, what have you patented? So, what have you invented? Let’s back up: What have you though of that would make a good invention?
Are you the builder, or the idea person? If it’s an idea, can you build it?
As an inventor, do you have to be able to build a product yourself? I wish that was true. It would cut down on the number of patents sought. My products would go toward the front of the line.
At the last inventors fair I went to, there was about 1 company that specialized in prototype development for every 4 or 5 inventors there. If you have the idea and the bucks you can have a product made; even if it doesn’t work.
If on the other hand you have a mechanical background and can build things, you can save those dollars but it does cost you time. I personally dislike paying someone to do something I can do myself.
So what’s the point? It really doesn’t matter whether you build the invention yourself or have it built. Take those ideas and get them out there.
