Patent documents are dry & architectural & ultimately meant for lawyers. They can be hard to understand & can hurt your chances of presenting your innovation’s true value to buyers & licensees.
A picture is worth a thousand words, & having an image or a video that can provide some indication of the opportunity you’re presenting can go a long way in generating clicks & getting leads.
If you don’t have a prototype of your product try building a 3D mock-up of what it can look like. There are great resources like Canva for creating mockups or MakerBot for building 3D prototypes.
Once you’re mock-up/prototype is created, upload it to Cypris & share it with the world.
Lawyers will still be able to see the original patent image, but you will now be engaging a new audience that will only increase your chances of seeing your innovation brought to life.
