When we talk of inventions which have either touched or changed our lives, we often praise the inventor for “thinking out of the boxes.” How do these people think connected with a new invention idea by thinking out of the box? Is it possible for you and me to do it too? To know this we have to exactly what to do with an invention idea the “box” is making sure that we can think beyond it. The “box” could be the way things are, and ways in which we have been tutored to view things. A variety of factors which determine approach we look at things.

What if someone thought of to help manufacture an air-conditioner which ran on something else which is more organic and saved on power consumption? Another way to think about a new invention idea is to think greatest absurd. One needs an exceedingly open mind for this as the process can both be fun and also irritating. There could be hundreds of completely absurd solutions to a problem, but one of them could be a genuinely new invention idea.
