Should I create a prototype before applying for a patent on my invention?
You are not legally required to create a prototype before filing a patent application. However, depending on your invention and the circumstances of your case, it may be beneficial to develop a prototype before filing a patent application. The U.S. patent laws do not require that you create or build your invention or otherwise create a prototype before filing a patent application. However, the law requires that your invention be described to the level of detail in your patent application where one skilled in the technical area of your invention can recreate your invention without undue experimentation by reading your patent application. We prefer to error on the side of more disclosure of details regarding the invention rather than less when writing a patent application.
