Hi everyone, Glad to have found this resource.
My question is;
I have an idea for a new invention that in a nutshell is converting an existing product for a new use in a completely different field. A bad but similar example would be;
Taking an ordinary kitchen mixer and replacing the beaters with scrub pads and selling it as a product to clean the toilet.
Difference is although there are powered toilet brushes there is currently no products in my target field that are used for my service and I basically realized i could convert or just redesign an existing product.
Is this type of product conversion and use in a completely different field able to be patented and trademarked?
Or will manufacturers see my idea and be able to convert they`re exixting product as well and flood my otherwise "only product of its kind and use" target field?
Hope this makes sense.
