When we talk of inventions which have either touched or changed our lives, we often praise the inventor for “thinking out of the area.” How do these people think in the new invention idea by thinking out of the box? Is it possible for you and me to do it too? To know this we have to exactly what the “box” is in order that we can think beyond it. The “box” is the way things are, and exactly we have been tutored to view things. A variety of factors which determine means we look at situations. Thus the first step to start 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 resolve a problem, because walking on the much-treaded patch is safe, though wearisome. For instance, when you regarding a domestic air-conditioner, what are the assumptions? Cooling, auto switch off, silent, it to be able to run on electricity, and so on. What if someone thought of ways to manufacture an air-conditioner which ran on something else which is more organic and saved on power consumption? Another way to think of a new invention idea is to think greatest absurd. One needs a really open mind for this as the process can both be fun and also irritating. There could be hundreds of completely absurd solutions to a problem, but one of them could be a genuinely new invention idea. Along with a “what if” question and you will be impressed at the number of absurd answers you could arrive at.
There is a literal way of thinking as is also and that is to eliminate patent your idea home or inventhelp office and watch the way people live, behave and communicate. The story from the shoe salesman comes to mind. This man went to Africa to sell shoes, a country where people never wore these kind of. By thinking out of the box, he thought of the idea of selling his first pair along with curious buyer by highlighting its heat resisting abilities and ensuing comfort to his feet. The shoe salesman soon opened shop and became a millionaire. There are many stories like this and as the saying goes, you can actually sell a refrigerator for 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; eliminate two legs from another to enable faster cleaning; add color to domestic utility items and make them inter-changeable; ideas like these will flow once you think deeper and harder at the common daily objects and concepts for new inventions will be a knock away!
