Inventions have always been considered to be central to development of modernity as they fuel technological progress in terms of technical capability, market availability and consumer satisfaction. Inventors, as historical personas and intellectual influencers, are important in this sense because they signify human intellect as the primary source of progress, motivating future generations to pay more attention to focus, efficiency and precision. With so much talent around and so little attention being paid to possibilities, it is no wonder that companies such as InventHelp are breaking ground in their pursuit to discover new geniuses and support their projects to bring change into the game. After all, repetition creates stagnation and nobody likes to lag behind on their way to greatness in the grand test of time. The current system favors the status quo that created it but creativity, intelligence and foresight know no boundaries, signaling further developments in technology for the bright minds to take notice.
“The first step is to establish that something is possible; then probability will occur,” says Elon Musk, the CEO of Space X, presumably one of the most fascinating tech-driven businesses today, but no one can deny the importance of analysis and structural progression for inventors.
It is important to find need for new technologies and products and keep wondering about even the simplest things in life for inspiration. This way, the inventor can find reasons to pursue their ideas and find influence from the surroundings. A perfect example of this is Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Their inventor, Satoshi Nakamoto, saw a need to “deconstruct” the way our financial system works, and invented a Peer to Peer monetary system. Nowadays, Bitcoin has been accepted and integrated with platforms that rely on the financial system itself like PayPal. It’s easy to buy Bitcoin with PayPal and other payment methods. Acquiring or building the necessary tools is a must an inventors frequently end up discovering new methods or gadgets in the process that help them develop other ideas as well. It is crucial to take notes and record ideas because the chaotic process of implementing an idea might make the inventor forget crucial details. Many such inventors find the right type of role model at an early age for inspiration, who has an interest in new ideas and went onto develop them. Organizing and categorizing ideas is essential while developing an interest to deconstruct devices from an early age almost always helps inventors develop a sense of confidence with machines. Taking into consideration the ideas and projects of younger inventors broadens horizons, while challenging peers with new ideas always adds speed to the invention and innovation processes.
InventHelp’s procedural system begins by accepting calls from inventors regarding their ideas and projects with full confidentiality. The system then refers the inventor to a nearby office for further consultation, while also sharing with them the experiences of others before them. The company’s website also houses a blog where ideas, stories, insights and warnings are shared, helping the system immerse the inventor into a theoretical framework of success. Accommodations and insight make all the difference for innovators and the case of Andrew Sanderson, an ex-British Royal Air Force engineer and a current inventor, proves this point. Sanderson came up with an extremely durable and functional mechanical pencil as his brainchild product, after beginning his career experimenting on and repairing the Mini Cooper car his father gifted him. He continued such an interest in mechanical devices after joining the Royal Air Force at the age of 16 and received a computer programming degree from a community college. Sanderson then began using his skills and tools in mechanical engineering and computer science to focus on his own projects, launching two Kickstarter campaigns to raise funds for his ‘Modern Fuel Pencils’ project. The inventor also believes in the importance of faith, accommodation, guidance and assistance in for innovation, which are all technicalities provided by InventHelp to the company’s clients. It is striking almost how every inventor takes notice of the above given dialectic, which further solidifies InventHelp’s position in the market because the company has managed to integrate an interactive corporate design into its methodology to produce concrete results for its inventors.
Naturally, the company is quite selective with its preference of projects to work with, while accepting all ideas at the preliminary level. One of the criteria that InventHelp applies is environmental awareness and utility of candidate projects, as the new age of technology does not tolerate environmental damage, regardless of benefits associated with the invention. Having a department dedicated to ‘Community Service’, InventHelp chooses to support and fund projects that elevate human life to a higher level of consciousness, making it a necessity to take notice of the importance of the environment we all live in. The issue is also a trend in the world of inventions and the recent RangerBot project exemplifies a great effort to preserve sea life through human intellect and technical capabilities. Among the robot’s missions is to neutralize the coral-eating species of starfish surrounding the Great Barrier Reef area in Australia by navigating underwater, avoiding obstacles and identifying such crown of thorns starfish. Currently, the robot works with 99.4% accuracy rate in identifying such starfish and instigating a fatal injection into its skin. RangerBot is also capable of monitoring the reef’s health through 3D maps that depict changes in the ecosystem, thanks to the longevity of its dives that take place without any physical human involvement, even in the most dangerous areas of the ocean. RangerBot and InventHelp share a common mission: to serve humanity by employing human intellect and machine capabilities to support the environment. In an age of constant environmental degradation and damage, showing the initiative to target critical issues helps spread the message of continuity and awareness, increasing the chances of technological intervention for the greater good.
One of the primary problems with the world of inventions today is the issue of the protection of intellectual property, as many ideas, products and processes are introduced to the world under false identities. The InventHelp system is an online database that keeps track of all the necessary information regarding inventors and projects, making it possible to track such information to reach perfect conclusion regarding the origin, development and ownership of such projects. Recently, the Chinese media has been making false claims regarding technologies such as high-speed rail, mobile payments, e-commerce and bike sharing as uniquely Chinese inventions, whereas the reality is that they have been devised decades ago by different parties. The media campaign was based on a Beijing Foreign Studies University survey in 2017 where the participants picked the mentioned four technologies as the most desired ones to be brought back to China, leading the campaign’s creators to associate them with the four great inventions of Ancient China, namely “papermaking, gunpowder, printing and the compass.” However, it is a historical fact that the first high-speed train service began in Japan in the year 1964, while the first mobile payment was made in Finland in 1997. It was Michael Aldrich who invented online shopping back in 1979 and bikes were being shared in Amsterdam back in the 1960’s as well. The Chinese media’s interest in supporting the country’s program of mass-scale industrialization is understandable, but for those seeking factuality, the campaign constitutes a problem. With InventHelp’s online system of recording, tracking and accessing information, such confusions are automatically eradicated. The reliability of such an information system also provides confidentiality and legal protection for inventors, adding more power to the company’s appeal in the eyes of its clients.
‘Big Tech’, the end-result of decades long research and development into technology, has become so powerful that it was recently targeted by the US president Donald Trump on the grounds of allowing political interference into 2016 general elections. Google, Facebook and Twitter have all been accused of propaganda and intentional bias, while the newly emergent wave of American conservatism seeks to further pressure such companies for further transparency and accountability. What does this mean for inventors? On a primary level, the issue signifies the need to remain separate and isolated from the political realm, regardless of the authenticity of their ideas and claims. On a more technical level, the issue shows how human intellect is never sufficient for a project to be accepted and supported by the public, thanks to the existence of intermediaries that seek to capitalize on the profits generated by human intellect and ambition. Reverting to InventHelp’s methodology and design of assistance and guidance for inventors, it is seen that the company’s close ties with the market and the political domain helps inventors remain safe within its protected domain of awareness and professionalism. The possible legal ramifications of the inventors’ involvement in the market or other domains of cultural influence, including politics, are clearly explained to them prior, which automatically eradicates any chances of political manipulation. As the tech world is undergoing a new phase of transformation and recognition, having the right game plan for success makes all the difference. Relying on professional help and assistance such as InventHelp services acknowledges the inventors’ honesty but also protects them from easy mistakes that can easily push them out of the game.
