How to Invent Something That Hasn’t Been Invented
Invention and innovation are at the core of modern society, in the sense that they improve efficiency and productivity of doing things. Inventing something new is defined by a process of coming up with an extremely unique way of doing something, which can be extremely difficult but ultimately rewarding. One might wonder, how do I invent something that has never been invented before? Well, while there is no direct conclusive answer to this question; this blog will provide some great tips in order to get your wheels spinning.
Tip #1 – Find a Solution to Problem You Want to Solve
This is the ultimate objective of creating a new invention; solving a problem that has yet to be solved, or coming up with a solution to an already existing problem. Regardless of the type of invention, this solution must be innovative, creative, and definitely out of the box. Funny enough, some of the best inventions have been created as a result of an inventor’s own personal frustrations. Pro tip, start tuning into your own frustrations or others frustrations that exist within their day to day life.
Tip #2 – Market Research is Key
It is extremely important to do market research before investing any time, money, or effort into your invention. Firstly, make sure your idea is solely original and nothing else too similar has been created. Next, it is essential that you find out what is already on the market in terms of the products out there, and specifically who your competitors are. It is crucial to do this to minimise risks and ensure a simpler process when it comes to patenting your invention. Finally, basic market research will also reveal if there is any interest in the solution you are providing with your invention. This will lead your idea back to the drawing board to ensure vital aspects of your invention hit the wants and needs of consumers.
Tip #3- Start Substantiating Your Invention
Now since your market research has been completed, you can begin substantiating your idea. As an inventor, you must get a good grip on the type of customer your product will intend to reach, how you will design the product, where you will distribute your product. and lastly, what will you do to market your invention. Finally, the ultimate step comes last which is beginning to prototype your product. Spark Innovations has got you covered on this one, as it is one of our teams’ specialties.
