Inventors needed

Dear inventors and instructors, Let me welcome my self , my name is Arylic Singh and i have just started a small company called : Arylic which is divided into three small component companies which include Arylic Robotics, Arylic Green and Arylic Inventions. You see the main goal of our new business plan is to use the least amount of money on the publicity and the advertisements and gain as much profit on the sales. So our objectives now is to look for young and old inventors and makers and make deals with them for their invention or products. So what we do here is we take the idea or plan or prototype of the invention or product and manufacture it under the companies name but their would be a deal that 30% of every sales goes to the inventor. There is a advantage to the inventor because he/she does not need to put any money into the manufacturings. SO now we are looking for new and fresh inventions and inventors to join our company and sit back and eat the creams........ Pm me for further information or post here.

American Inventor

Did you watch last night? I agreed with the judges on the final three. 6-in-1 bra - I don't wear clothes that would require something like that. I liked her and I liked her product. Guardian Angel Tree Extinguisher - I liked him and I liked his product. I'm allergic to real trees, so I have no use for it either. It could save lives. People who need it are probably to stupid to buy it and use it. Design and Build your own cars and planes - How much and where? I like this guy. Love his product. Not just for kids.

I thought this was interesting: Future Edisons - on PBS

Everybody has a great idea that could change the way we work, the way we live or the way we play. Everyday Edisons documents the development process of 12 inventions and the parallel stories of the people who invented them. Selected from thousands, the 15 Everyday Edisons learn how their extraordinary ideas are taken from a sketch on a napkin to a store shelf.Take Sheldon Levinson and Michael Diep: both like to tinker with concepts for new and improved products, or simply the next crazy fad. Levinson, a true kid-at-heart, is always looking for the next best toy or gadget to make people smile. Taking the traditional favorite bubbles and combining them with the lava lamp, another iconic American gadget, he developed the latest twist on bubble toys.Diep, a refugee from Vietnam, has thousands of inventions in his back pocket, one of which is a new design for a dual cat toy and claw scratcher. As a hectic business consultant, Diep encountered a challenge many of us face lack of time. With limited personal free time, much less time to take his cat to the veterinarian for nail trimmings, Diep incorporated sand paper into his jungle gym to naturally file the nails as it played.Inventing isn't just for adults, the retired or the self-proclaimed inventor. Mark and Cody Fox, brothers and juniors in high school, were tired of paying year-end fines for bent corners and broken spines on their school text books. After combining a few fabric swatches, some hot glue and pieces of plastic, the young men developed a way to prevent the dreaded fines come June.And The Link to the PBS site

The United Inventors Association of America

HI, I found this site by accident really – but I’m glad I did. I’m not sure if many of you have heard of The United Inventors Association of America – but in the event you have not – we are the largest Inventor Organization in the world. We’re also the only Government registered non-profit 501(c)3 in the inventing industry. Our mission is simple – to educate inventors so they are not taken advantage of. There are hundreds of thousands of creative people like those here on instructable who are taken advantage of each year as they work their way through the inventing process. The UIA helps to arm them with education about how a product is taken from your basement to the store shelf. Membership in the UIA is FREE – and the opportunity to learn from professionals in the inventing industry, well, that’s priceless. If you get a moment check out the UIA (www.uiausa.org) or find a local Inventor Group in your town! Thanks – and keep being creative. Mark www.uiausa.org

Davison and being an inventor

After checking out what Davison does, I decided they weren't a good fit with us and removed the ads. Normally, this would be no big deal, but because of the business Davison is in and the specifics of this case, I wanted to share my thinking.More here in the forums.

Davison and being an inventor

Last week a company called Davison was running targeted ads on Instructables through Google Adsense. Google Adsense typically places contextual-based ads on sites making connections between advertisers and publishers based on their search technology. However, advertisers can also work with Google to directly placed ads on specific sites. At first, we were flattered that Davison chose to target us, and further flattered that they were actually using our terminology in their ads. You may have seen "Cool Instructable?" or "Have an Instructable?" text ads running in our right sidebar.After checking out what Davison does, I decided they weren't a good fit with us and removed the ads. Normally, this would be no big deal, but because of the business Davison is in and the specifics of this case, I wanted to share my thinking.Davison solicits ideas from independent inventors, creates prototypes, markets potential products to manufacturers and distributors, and collects royalties. This is not worlds different from what we did at Squid Labs, except I would characterize Squid's activities as more technical and with the aim of creating sustainable businesses rather than exclusively creating products to be licensed.The rub comes in that Davison is not forthcoming with how they actually make money: high fees paid by the independent inventors. Here's a Forbes article that goes into greater depth, but for me, the important statistic is this: 37,000 or so people have contracted Davison Design's services in the last five years; but only eight of those who have signed up have realized royalties exceeding their fees to Davison.A 0.02% success rate is just awful, and clearly shows that they are preying upon people who don't know any better.The thing that personally put me over the edge was a section from their Questions and Myths:9. Can I tell people about my idea? We recommend that you do not publicly disclose your invention/idea to anyone (not even a friend or a family member), unless you have confidential documents in place to verify that you are the originator of the invention.Obviously, I have a conflict of interest, because I want you to share your initial ideas here in the forums and how you built your ideas into prototypes as Instructables to help me grow the site; however, the concept of absolute secrecy is anathema to me. Here at Squid Labs, we know of no one that has had their invention stolen by some big corporation (more on this at Saul's column in Makezine Vol. 9; full text available as an attached PDF, kindly permitted by Make). My experience has uniformly been that sharing yields stronger results than hiding. The person you share your ideas with might turn into a business partner and be instrumental in your shared success.Clearly there's demand for services to help inventors. Davison seems to have a nice facility at Invention Land; instead, why don't they invite the almost 8000 people per year that contact them to attend an "invention boot camp?" Attendees could learn some basic design, CAD, and machining skills, give mock presentations, and learn how to do a preliminary patent search. If Davison was doing a good job, they would start to see some success from their graduates, and companies looking for innovation would seek out the graduates or ask to attend the camp's final design reviews.Teaching people all these skills might sound impossible - like a full undergraduate and graduate series of degrees compressed into an 80-hour crash course. No course can cover everything- instead, it should give motivated people the basic skills and confidence to start doing it themselves, and teach them how to seek out the additional knowledge they need. It's surprising what motivated people can accomplish if you just get them started.In 2002 Saul and I taught a one-week class called Cyclomerisation where we taught a group of 12 people just enough bicycle design, CAD, and manufacturing to make them dangerous. Each person then designed their own custom bicycle using 8020 extruded aluminum and jet-machined connectors. We had telescoping unicycles, recumbent tricycles, and plenty of standard bikes; for example, check out Saul's 8020 Chopper. Half the participants were MIT students, half were not, and it made no difference -- everyone was motivated to learn something new and to put it into practice.If this idea isn't Davison's thing, then maybe I've found a project to work on after Instructables can run itself. In the meantime, I'm sharing the idea with all of you, because that's the best way to vet it, see if it has legs, and make it stronger.More pictures from Cyclomerisation here and here.

The Great Egg Race Returns!

Brits of a certain age will remember The Great Egg Race - teams of ingenious chaps using the contents of a typical shed or kitchen to solve a problem of which they have no prior notice, kind of a cardigan-wearing precursor to Scrapheap Challenge (aka Junkyard Wars). At the same time, an international egg-mobile contest was going on; teams and individuals competing to make vehicles to carry a 70g egg as far as possible, powered only by a single, small elastic band.  For American readers, it's a similar idea to a mouse-trap car. Well, it's back! Firstly, there's a digitised archive of shows from the Early eighties (the years when I was in secondary education!) available online here (sorry, I don't know if they are available to US viewers, but maybe you can find it YouTube?). In addition, Auntie Beeb is bringing it back, or at least, it's spirit, in the form of a new Wallace and Gromit show, with animated inventions, instructions for making your own gadgets (some familiar to us here, like a vibrobot, others more unusual, like a Magnus-effect car (I'm really curious about that one!). Keep an eye on this show, folks, and on the hands-on page - it could be a great source of inspiration for new Makers, and your own Instructables.

Back-room inventors' contest.

From the Popular Science website: World-changing devices don't need to come from big labs funded with big money. Sometimes radical technological innovations roll, whir, or fly out of basements and garages. Do you know you've invented something that's poised to disrupt a market, or have you toiled building prototype after prototype in your home workshop to prove your idea works? Whether you're a professional engineer working on a self-funded side project, a hobbyist who has launched a successful crowdfunding campaign to refine your gadget, or an obsessive teenager who's built a sellable product in your bedroom, please tell us about it! Enter the seventh annual Popular Science Invention Awards. We’re looking for game-changing products developed by passionate, independent inventors -- not academic or corporate R&D; labs. Popular Science editors will pick 10 entries that best represent the spirit of homegrown ingenuity and solve real-world problems in a practical, innovative way. Then, in our May 2013 issue, seven million readers will get the first look at the winners. This is right up your street, Instructablers, because you have to make a thing, that you can show working, and you are not allowed to enter if you have a commercial or university research department backing you up.

World's youngest inventor - holds patent for new broom.

A boy of five is thought to be the UK's youngest person to patent an invention after coming up with a labour-saving broom to help his father sweep leaves.Sam Houghton, of Buxton, Derbyshire, was just three when he came up with a double-headed broom to collect large debris and fine dust simultaneously. Sam, who was inspired by animated inventors Wallace and Gromit and Archie the Inventor from TV series Balamory, said: "I saw my Daddy brushing up and made it. There are two brushes because one gets the big bits and one gets the little bits left behind."I don't know if I want to be an inventor when I grow up but this was fun.""I was swapping from one broom to the other and he asked why. When I said it was to pick up the different leaves and twigs it must have got him thinking."He got a large elastic band from the shed and put it over the two brooms, holding them just the right way to use both together. He then called me and announced that had had made up an invention." The broom works with the coarser brush at the front to pick up larger objects and the finer brush at the back.Sam's invention has been taken up by the UK-IPO, which is hoping to use it to encourage other youngsters to come up with inventions through an initiative called "Cracking Ideas".BBC StoryCracking Ideas websiteIntellectual Property Office

For example, I'm designing a paintball marker, and it has a body, bolt, trigger assembly, and various pins. How would I make the bolt catch on the trigger when it is moved rearward? How would I make the bolt go forward when the trigger is moved rearward? I'm using AutoDesk Inventor Professional 2012. Also, I have access to most current Autodesk programs if they are required.

Boy inventor re-imagines doorbell, gets VERY rich!

A 13-year-old boy from Croydon is set to make hundreds of thousands of pounds after inventing a doorbell that calls the householder if no-one answers the door. The boy entered a school "Dragons' Den" type contest, and ended up with his idea in production.  Orders made so far should earn him £250,000 ($411,000).  Three of his fellow contestants ended up with full patents on their ideas, and one other is negotiating with a Chinese manufacturer to get his idea on the shelves.  That boy is only twelve! Dubbed Smart Bell, the device came about in response to a competition hosted by Rook's London school. The contest, however, necessitated a working prototype. Rook's parents passed the plans along to a family friend, Paula Ward (crowned world's top female inventor of 2004 at INPEX), who sent the plans to China. Less than a year after its development, major U.K. retailers have signed up to sell the Smart Bell, which will retail for £40, or about $66. The Smart Bell has a built-in SIM card and other cellular technology that will call the owner's phone. The unit also produces some subtle white noise that mimics the effect of an intercom.

I imagine it would work something life this: the tags on the items would have special chips in them (and/or metal pieces for quick detection of how many items you have), so that when you walk under the scanner with your shopping cart full, or stuff in your arms, it nearly instantly calculates how many items you have and at which prices. Then you can use your card or cash to pay for your purchase in that same machine (like an ATM). Would be BRILLIANT! Thanks :)
