    Exactly how does one come up with a new idea of cleaning carpets.. a lot these stuff been around for 40 years. They just get tweaked into an improved design...

    Nothing new under the sun..

    That’s why we keep getting new versions of Saiger.

    its like was said above, youll have to dump so much money into defending a patent.. if you get one, just to be able to sell to a relatively small market.

    if you dont defend it, theres plenty of vultures waiting to steal/copy it.

    Ive head this kind of crap a lot over the years from this industry. Seems to be a good amount low life's trying to take whats not theirs to take. I have zero tolerance for thieves and would hate to think what I might do. However the law school has agreed to defend me but it is the common thought that my patent is so strong it would be much easier to pay me off then trying to steal it. I also have investors and a big shark behind me as well

    I think you should change emoji because this is definitely not William Wallace talk, more like Chicken Little

    I do like the beer can holder idea, only for a coffee cup. Maybe an expandable screen for a quick pee later.
