When we talk of inventions which have either touched or product patent changed our lives, we often praise the inventor for “thinking out of the inbox.” How do these people think connected with a new InventHelp Invention News idea by thinking out of the box? Is it possible for as well as me to do it too? To know this we have to know what the “box” is so that we can think beyond it. The “box” will be the way things are, and in what way we have been tutored to view things. There’s lots of factors which determine approach we look at things. Thus the first step to thinking beyond the normal is to identify and challenge our own views and perceptions.
The entire process of challenging preconceived notions, established norms and usual assumptions is a very powerful and creative way to unravel a problem, because walking on the much-treaded patch is safe, though tedious. For instance, when you associated with a domestic air-conditioner, what are the assumptions? Cooling, auto switch off, silent, it to be able to run on electricity, therefore forth. What if someone thought of to help manufacture an air-conditioner which ran on something else which is more organic and saved on power consumption? Another way to come up with a new invention idea is to think the top absurd. One needs an unnaturally open mind for this as the process can both be fun as well as irritating. There could be hundreds of completely absurd solutions to a problem, but one of them could be a genuinely new invention idea. Start with a “what if” question and you will be blown away at the number of absurd answers you could arrive at.
There is a literal way of thinking as and that is to get out of your home or office and watch the way people live, behave and communicate. The story in the shoe salesman comes to mind. This man went to Africa to sell shoes, a country where people never wore items. By thinking out of the box, he thought about the idea of selling his first pair the curious buyer by highlighting its heat resisting abilities and ensuing comfort to his feet. The shoe salesman soon opened shop and became a billionaire. There are many stories like this and as the saying goes, you can actually sell a refrigerator with regard to an Eskimo, provided you can invent some way to convince him of its utility.
Concepts like division, subtraction, temperature control, colorful all trigger great invention ideas; make a large table foldable help to make it more space for utility purposes; withhold two legs from another to enable faster cleaning; add color to domestic utility items and make them inter-changeable; product ideas like these will flow once you believe deeper and harder at the common daily objects and concepts for new inventions will be a knock away!
