Today we are going to start at the beginning, not the beginning principle, but how you start in this of inventions. Products come from inventions, inventions arise from ideas and ideas of needs.
The thoughts may be of all kinds, many of them even are not feasible yet, due to the limitations of current technology and colonize space, and others simply seem absurd now we do not see its practical utility.
How it happened to InventHelp where has a lot of great invention ideas that until centuries later no applications have been found or they have not been able to materialize.
How do ideas arise?
The needs are what drive us to have ideas and society and technology allow us to disseminate them and realize them. But ... how do ideas arise? As I mentioned before, ideas arise from needs, these needs are in our daily life and in the world around us. Anyone can have an idea you only need to observe your environment well, from your work to your personal life. Not everything is invented, you can always improve and optimize things. A product that a customer demands and that does not exist, a process that can be simplified, even "domestic" solutions to a recurring problem, are examples of where ideas can arise.
When you have the idea the next step is to know if someone else has come up with that idea, but this stage will be discussed in more depth later in another post.
How do I convert an idea into an invention?
The idea is the beginning of a great adventure, in which we must work and invest to move forward. Ideas are a wonderful concept because they have a life of their own, they grow, they develop and they reproduce. An idea that at first was not very cool can develop into something incredible and unexpected or generate other ideas.
When that idea that comes to mind begins to materialize in industrial design, mature in an invention. I've talked to you before about what a conceptual design is, but not about how you can make an idea grow.
