"As test subjects" sounds ominous... (I guess I could've phrased it as "to study.")

I have an idea for an invention (not a billion $)
I can't find anything similar online.

Does anyone know how to go about turning the idea, into an invention, getting a patent, and then actually creating the production?

Now you can call a patent lawyer. But keep in mind itís a long expensive journey that most donít complete. Itís probably smarter to try and sell it to one of these companies that offers a perpetual percentage of profits.

Any experience with either option?

Donít know anything about them but be careful- if you donít have personal references stay away. There are many stories of places like this stealing any good ideas they hear. Probably worth it to speak to a patent lawyer first and foremost.

Not much. Iíve spoken to a patent lawyer a couple of times, I can give you his number if youíd like. Frum guy.

Sure I'll take the number, it would be pretty cool to have my own patent

Could cost you $50-100k or more, do you have that kind of money to invest?

Just for the patent? How can you tell how much it will cost?

I seem to remember reading that somewhere and this article I found with a quick Google search tells me itís more in the range of $5-25k depending on complexity:

Should be closer to $10k. And then international patent costs more.

But you must have a good patent lawyer to make it fool proof

What's an example of something that there's a patent on that I can't get a similar item?

The only thing I can think of off hand is medicines

I once heard about using a sealed mail instead of a patent.

No need for exaggeration, it can also cost less than $5-10k. Depends on the project.

Does anyone know how to go about turning the idea, into an invention, getting a patent, and then actually creating the production?

Process I would follow -
Find a reliable patent lawyer/agent to consult with regarding patentability
Hire industrial designer (freelance) to create 3D CAD models and samples
Search Alibaba for reputable factories within that niche
Once you have costing/factory sample and it makes sense to produce, file a utility (and optionally a design) patent
Produce the goods

PM for further help but I am bit busier these days
