Update: Innovation Direct™ receives return phone call from inventor of kitchen accessory regarding New York-based Innovation Direct To Industry™ company’s questions; information relayed to manufacturer…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking back in with another Innovation Direct To Industry™-related update. Following up on a situation we had most recently reported on in a May 27th entry (“Update: Innovation Direct™ receives feedback from New York-based Innovation Direct To Industry™ company on 4 inventions under review…“), the Innovation Direct™ representative managing a New York-based company’s Innovation Direct To Industry™ account has received a return call from the inventor of a kitchen accessory that was the subject of additional questions from the manufacturer.
After a recent review of the invention’s detailed design information, our contact at the company had asked that we get in touch with the inventor regarding whether or not there was an existing prototype for the invention. The manufacturer had also forwarded a couple of additional inquiries about the product’s functionality and requested we direct them to the inventor as well. Accordingly, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing the situation had placed a call to the inventor that same day, and earlier Thursday, received a return call. In the ensuing conversation, the inventor confirmed she did not currently have a working prototype, but did respond to the other questions the manufacturer had.
Innovation Direct™ promptly relayed all of the information culled during the call to our contact at the company in an e-mail earlier Thursday, and we now await their response. As part of Innovation Direct™’s correspondence to the manufacturer, it was emphasized that we could conceivably arrange to have an interactive virtual reality presentation for the invention created in lieu of a physical prototype. This approach has served this company’s purposes as well in the past, particularly with a Innovation Direct™ inventor’s fitness accessory that they continue to evaluate for a possible infomercial.
