Three-Part Idea for Inventions by Lisa Renee Kopp

My ideas for a three-part invention which would prove very useful to people, both individuals and groups, are as follows:

Part I – Use the technology used to invent microfilm to create a widely used product where people can make copies of records (and anything else that currently comes on paper).

Part II – Invent a machine where people can make copies of things already on paper and put them on a microfilm-like substance. This machine should be portable and easy-to-use.

Part – Invent a machine that people can use to view documents and things put onto microfilm-like substance. This machine should also be portable and easy-to-use.

Three Ideas explained further:

Use the invented machine to make copies of documents already on paper. A microfilm-like substance can be used and newly-copied items can be placed on this substance. Then people can use the second machine to view these items. Individuals and/or businesses can purchase these three inventions to use. They can either purchase blank microfilm-like items or ones with documents already on them. They can use the first machine to make copies of the desired documents. Then they can either purchase the second machine for viewing the items or a place of business can charge a fee of perhaps $.25 (or more or less) for patrons to view the desired items.

Reasons for these inventions:

There are actually a few reasons. One is because most homes and businesses are “drowning” in a sea of paper. My inventions would help free up a lot of space.

Another reason is an environmental one. If we can eliminate a lot of the need for paper we can save trees and free up space in landfills and garbage dumps.

A third reason is an economic one. Producing my inventions would create a lot of jobs. Then the purchase of my three inventions would generate a lot of money being spent. Then, in addition to those reasons, businesses can generate income for themselves in charging people for the use of my three products.


I do not personally have the means to invent such products. However, I am supplying the ideas. I truly believe these products would be very useful to people. I hope you will consider using them.

Hi Lisa!

That was a very well written idea. I'm betting that English is a favorite subject of yours.

Google search keyword "microfiche" which is also sometimes mispelled "microfish" (the way most people pronounce it) and come back and let us know if this microfiche is different than what you are trying to describe. It sounds very similar.
