I have had this idea in my head now for 15yrs and its sending me mad. I know it will do well and other companies have come close to coming up with this idea themselves fortunately missing it by a mile.

I'm in a tough position because i cant just give my idea away, although if i can meet someone with the technical ability to help bring the project to fruition then i will disclose everything and go 50/50.

All i can say is, its to do with controllers mice and keyboards.... I'm sure this product will be cheap enough to sell by the millions and that every one of us will use one.

Who do i speak to?... I need someone with engineering skills who understands electronics and power etc. I thought about travelling to silicon valley or china after the pandemic to try and find the person who can help me make this happen. So far ive signed up to an inventors guide that helps you to bring your product to market.
i have 30yrs experience gaming and i know i would of found using my keyboard and mouse much more enjoyable to use if i had only had certain features that today are sadly missing.

I know we have some amazing members on tech power up. Who can i reveal my idea to?

Ive just tried to get a free version of CAD auto desk... Any other free cad software i can use???? so i can at least start putting my designs down in digital format. Its two inventions btw.... One for mouse and one for keyboard... touched on by other companies yet the implementation has been lacking. I want to produce something that will snap on or fix to your mouse and another that will fit on to your keyboard or be used separately for ergonomic reasons.

If you can come up with a deign to your idea, you can always try to get it patented.

I would secure the patent first before you start bringing in other people to your idea who may or may not abscond with it and claim for themselves.

Patent, NDAs, a lawyer, all things to consider. Once they are in place, you could easily shop manufacturers and pitch the idea until someone bites.

AVOID CHINA unless you have a penchant for Non KY jelly Penetration.
To be honest, he cannot avoid them. If the idea is as good as the hype in the OP, they will steal it and produce it anyways.

Thanks for the info, i found https://www.innovate-design.co.uk/. It seems as though this info pack can offer guidance through the process.


I'd love to run both the idea's by you all right now. The technology is already available but the implementation isn't right, making that version of the product much more specialised. Its the method of implementation thats noval, and i think you'll all approve. I just know that at least 1 part of the added 'control and immersion enhancement' would catch on and be used immediately.
The second part is an invention but again uses readily available technology and i believe would easily catch on as im looking at the 5-10 pound price point for each of the products. I can tell you that this second part would work with any mouse and i think avoids any of the other similar patents. There is another company that tried this but they got it way wrong. They stuck an analogue stick on a mouse. That just seems wrong to me. I wouldn't mind if someone stole my idea to be honest at this point. I am so far away from completing a cad drawing of both parts (i could do with a free program for this if anyone has any ideas). Then following through by myself , theres more chance of this not being developed.
If we had a private group i would bring in all of those that came into the thread to help right here as the products would be so successful we would all make bank.
Create a board and work together to bring this to market. We could all chip in for the patent. I'm not greedy...:)
One of the parts has a similar creation for console. I need advice on how i can do this without infringing that patent, as i say its the implementation thats differant.
I might as well reveal my first idea as its nothing to do with my main invention. I want to use an anologue stick to move around instead of wasd as its just more precise and i dont beleive the new anologue keys being developed will be that good. We already have a wi remote. we just need three triggers for jump crouch and run.... would i have to pay the original patent holder's to create my own version.
I dont mind revealing that idea as its not the one which will earn FU money.

I wouldn't be so eager to hand out free money.

I mean, you could make a PM chain and include others, but that means many more possibilities of leaks too.

If you just need someone to talk about the idea, to get it off your chest, i can offer my word not to say anything. I'm sure we could even delete the PM chain if you are worried about the "log" of that information. Although, if it were me, I'd stay tight lipped at least until you have legal rights to it.

Check this image, you cant use half a controller unless you map jump, run and crouch. We need a product built for pc gamers thats simple and doesnt take up much room.
Maybe design a universal holder for it to neatly sit on the side of the keyboard.
My other idea is all about adding to everyone's mouse(without interfering with it). Again if anyone else came to market with the ideas i have id be pretty happy as i would like to use them.
If the patents are too expensive to create the first part i will simply make one model for myself out of an xbox one controller and make the unit with a 3d printed case.(thinking about it this would make a good YouTube video).

I really appreciate that. The main idea i have would be easy to make and highly marketable. With only one patent that's distantly similar(although i need to search through the existing patents to be sure) .

I'd be wary of the IP for controller tech on a keyboard interface. Razer aren't the only ones with this sort of idea. Even if your design differs, it would need to be something special to avoid IP infringement, assuming someone actually patented it.

Thanks for that info. i would definitely be late to the party. I'll keep working on it. :toast:
