WOAH!!!... what a GREAT idea! I spent over an hour in Google searches because I figured this was such a great idea that somebody had to have done it before. I didn't do a patent search but within the internet I couldn't find anything like it. This just might be one of those really great ideas that's SO obvious that nobody ever tried to patent it --> but is patentable. My SO obvious "RockAbsorber" patent was just like this one and it succeeded. ADVISE: go to the USPTO (or your countrys patent office) search engine and if it hasn't already been done -- do it! In my openion you can't lose on this one if you sucessfully obtain a patent. It's a natural! I just can't believe this hasn't already been done. SEARCH QUICKLY
You have disclosed here that you are working on it (simi protected) but didn't give any patentable details so your free to search and patent! Good Luck!!!
If you are NOT going to pursue this invention, please let us know immediately so that someone who reads this can. If you choose NOT to pursue this, I'll help anyone (for free) who wants to. I can't be involved in any other way without a major conflict of interest (personal thing (eternal lack of sleep)).
Just remember, whomever decides to run with this -- I will be more than happy to tell you how to proceed (step by step) but I will NOT do it for you or accept any monetary compensation for anything.
ROCHE <--- the ball is in YOUR court. Are you going to run with this or pass it to someone else? Immediate response is important because you have actively disclosed the 'idea' (nothing to do with a patent) on the internet and the inventor "first to file" is (almost) eveything in the USA. A provisional patent (good for one year) can be done in a few hours and can be converted to a full patent a year later. ROCHE, if you do a search and it's clear, then I strongly suggest you patent. This is a NATURAL!!!
