Popular Science Wants Your Inventions!
The very popular Popular Science Magazine is calling for submissions for the next world changing invention... not an invention, as they call it, "born in the R& D labs of universities and corporations," but ones just like most of ours, born while taking a shower or shopping at your local hardware store.
Ten inventions will be awarded prizes in a variety of categories, plus there will be a Student Award Category this year, the second year of the PopSci Invention Awards.
Last year's invention awards went to home-built inventions, such as the Stunstick Neuroscrambler, a long distance Taser-like shocker, a sensor-packed CPR Glove, and a 3-dimensional computer mouse ring, that is hoped to become the next generation of computer "mice,"
So, if you've got something on your drawing board that you think will change the world, get it into prototype, and back yourself up with patent applications (an official utility patent would protect you better), trademark, or whatever intellectual property proof you need to substantiate your rights to the invention before you submit.
Here are some submission guidelines from Popular Science:
