Develop a proto-type. Work out the details in drawings and plans, and describe the solution precisely. This helps you determine how realistic your idea is and to uncover any weaknesses.
Good to know
- In case a conflict arises at a later date, you will be able to prove the date of your invention (e.g., the steps in your inventive process). Date the drawings and plans, put them in a sealed envelope, and then mail them to yourself (do not open the envelope!). You can also have the documents notarized.
