Patent an Idea: Advice

  • Worldwide patent searching to help establish originality
  • Help with Intellectual Property applications
  • Low-cost patent specification drafting; for cost-effectively obtaining ‘patent pending’ status

Prototype an Idea

It is important to develop the idea, looking at materials, manufacturing methods, functionality and aesthetic form prior to applying for protection. The process will help to resolve principle technical issues and is a core part of the development of the project. As such, the design work will help the product to gain credibility and inspire confidence in investors, licensees or manufacturers.

Prototyping involves realising the design in a physical form and this allows the designs to be further refined. It is often essential to prove that the product works, which can be done through prototyping. The prototype demonstrates and provides evidence of the product’s performance whilst also allowing for a more visual, presentable method.
