The second week of October proved to be an exceptionally busy week for InventionHome’s marketing & licensing department, which netted an incredible FOUR license agreements in one week!  With the additional four agreements finalized, InventionHome marketing and licensing successes now stand at 117.  2010 is shaping up to be their highest performance licensing year on record with a 100% growth rate over 2009.

The four agreements mentioned include products called the Bead Bender, Lawnmower D’Light, Step Ramps and Cargo Sling.  Each of the license agreements was born by the hard work and dedication of an independent inventor.  Two of the licensed inventions fall into the automotive/vehicle category.  They were both licensed to a company that focuses on motorsports products.  The company hopes to see both products on the market by third quarter 2011.  The third licensed product can best be described as a headlight for a lawnmower.  A company with strong ties to Home Depot, Lowe’s, Sears, etc. licensed the product with hopes that their customers will embrace the clever device.  Our fourth licensed product may be featured on a television infomercial coming soon!  We can’t disclose too many details.  Suffice it to say that the simple product will keep your car nice and tidy.

These four licenses exemplify the effectiveness of InventionHome’s marketing program.  Granted, not every invention is going to succeed.  But InventionHome has laid the framework to get invention details into the hands of key decision makers at thousands of companies.  By developing streamlined processes both to share invention details, and also to assist companies with any interest inquiries, InventionHome has become a respected resources for companies seeking new products for license.

Monroeville, PA– InventionHome is pleased to feature a patent-protected tool for splitting pills of any shape called the Rotatable Pill Splitter.  Independent inventor Walt Cheney is working with InventionHome to market and license his product to companies in exchange for royalties.

Walt created, prototyped and was awarded a utility patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for his tool that gives individuals the option to halve and quarter pills with great accuracy.

The product consists of a lid and base with interchangeable pill beds in a variety of colors to accommodate a number of standard and unique pill sizes.  When the user wants to split a pill he selects the correct bed to match the pill size and inserts both into the device.  The pill bed holds the pill into the proper position and aligns it with the blade below.  The user rotates the outside lever of the pill bed and presto….the pill is split!

This is a great product for any individual who has a difficult time cutting a pill of any shape.  How many times has a doctor increased or decreased the dosage of a frequently prescribed drug and decided to write a new script for the medication?  In many circumstances the individual could have a supply at home and would love to split or quarter his previously purchased meds to get the right dosage.  The Rotatable Pill Splitter allows the user to be economical and accurate with his medication.

InventionHome continues to market Cheney’s product to interested companies.  For more information on the Rotatable Pill Splitter or invention-related services please contact InventionHome at (866) 844-6512.

Monroeville, PA – InventionHome is pleased to feature a patent-protected teaching tool for children called Skissors.  Independent inventors Dawn and Bob Kenny are working with InventionHome to market and license their product to companies in exchange for royalties.

 

The idea for Skissors began when the mom and dad team noticed their children handling scissors at home.  Fearing their children could injure themselves, Dawn and Bob thought about solutions and created a prototype combining hole covers built into a traditional pair of scissors.  The simple and effective prototype forces a child to properly insert their thumb and index finger the correct depth into the wholes and safely use the tool for home and school projects. 

 

The Kenny’s product was awarded a utility patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. 

 

InventionHome continues to market the Kenny’s product to interested companies.  For more information on Skissors or invention-related services please contact InventionHome at (866) 844-6512.
