Inventor writing on white board

I’m still exploring ideas

Abstract ideas aren’t patentable, so you still need to develop a concrete solution or proof of concept, even if only on paper. When you come to write a patent application you’ll need to describe your invention in enough detail that someone else with good knowledge of the same technical field would be able to reproduce it. Kick-start your research by looking in patent databases such as Espacenet – it’s free!
