I've been working on this project for the past six months. My invention is a medicine alarm. I am in the process of making a prototype. After some considerations, I have decided to name it the
'NURSE ALARM' I am certain this item will cause a revolution.

I don't know what you are working on, but I tried to patent a pill bottle alarm that would remind you to take your pills. I paid a patent attorney to have a search done, and it had been patented about 20 times. If that discourages you, don't let it! I have an uncle who went from a high school dropout to decimillionaire in 10 years with a single industrial patent.

Globalsources.com has quiet a few variations to medicine alarms but I do believe my idea to be different. I'm in the process of constructing a web site...will post a link in a few days.

This is a cool idea. Good luck with it.
A valuable NEW resource for inventors can be found at www.PatentsProfiled.com the site is new but it allows members to profile their ideas patents etc. as well as network with other inventors, lawyers, universities, organizations and institutions
