Innovation has driven and continues to drive the world. As Albert Einstein once
said, "It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer."
Cognitive scientists call this "mental time travel" and believe it serves as a key
distinction between humans and animals. Most animals show no ability for
imaging future states but most humans exhibit this capacity by the age of four. I

When Scipio Africanus took on the seemingly impossible task of defeating
Hannibal in 205 B.C., he resisted the head-on assault that other Roman military
leaders had tried before him. Instead he took in a bigger picture, and looked
not just at the players but at their inter-dependencies. Clearly, Scipio was an
We built a website for the express purpose of providing a place where inventors
can inexpensively show what they have developed. We have developed many
products ourselves and became frustrated with companies who claim they can
get our inventions in front of manufacturers. Our hope is that by using this
website, your product can inexpensively get in front of manufacturers looking
to make new things.
Using this site is free of charge. Our only
requirement for listing items on the site is
a small one time fee for advertising your
item. Searching and making contact with
buyers is free but requires an account.
The only use for that information is to
email the inventor. No information is used
or sold by outside parties.
