Product Development/ Patent Fees
I am a new member to this site. I happened to be in my car much later than expected yesterday and heard the last 15 or 20 seconds of the on-air show. I heard the hosts mention "start-up nation" and discovered this site after returning home. (What would we do without the internet and Google?) Anyways, I have browsed around this site and love what I have seen thus far. I am a 38 year old Nurse Practitioner who has been "plagued" by always thinking of new product concepts/ideas/ etc... I have never pursued any of them. I have seen several ultimately appear on television as products for sale. I currently have several ideas for new products. Briefly, two are related to gardening/lawn care products, one is a specific "tool" for template making, and one deals with a conceptual design change for roofing methods (potentially applicable to EVERY new home construction). My question is regarding costs for patent application process? Also, I have contacted several manufacturers in the last 2 days via email, as well as the BobVila.com site, to determine potential interest in new product development. I am not sure what route to take. I am tired of seeing my ideas appear in the market place years after I "thought" of them. Any helpful advice would be appreciated. Perhaps I can barter and exchange health care advice for product development advice . Ha Ha
