Welcome to the safe site for inventors

We can help if: 

  You want the potential of an invention idea assessed.

  You’re developing an invention and want specific advice.

  You want a patent search, or advice about patents/IP.


We’ve researched over 6000 invention ideas since 1983, for inventors and innovation bodies. We know our stuff and have literally written the book.

Let us give you impartial, evidence-based advice to help you make more informed decisions. More informed means less at risk.

Even if it’s too soon for that, stick around because there’s plenty of useful information here for anyone with an itch to invent.




This and other page footer drawings – all from genuine published, public domain patents – are of traps that capture rather than kill, because we rather like mice. Or some of us do.
