Collecting new or novel inventions, most of which will never be the commercial success hoped for by the inventor. Collecting new novel ideas and gadgets, before they disappear into obscurity, a collection of amusement and recollection.

Collecting new inventions is not a popular pastime, which is the reason they are so collectible. Most gadgets have a very short production time, and so if not obtained when the opportunity arises, the chance may be lost forever.

This activity is non competitive and a pastime pursued on your own. Items can be found in gadget or new invention stores or mail order catalogues, Keep your eyes open while carrying on normal daily life tasks for that novel problem solving idea.

Although there is know age restriction when Collecting new inventions, other than the collector must be responsible when spending money. A high proportion of the items purchased are of interest rather than use,(rather like Jack and the magic bean).

A quite different ability is necessary when collecting inventions than with other forms of collecting. The collector has to understand the problem being solved, there is no common reference, such as a piece in a series or item by the same originator.

Collecting new inventions or new models is very much up to the collector, as to what is collectible. Collect items that nobody else will think to collect. Gadgets costing a few pence are often mass produced, used until they either break or become obsolete and are then forgotten, until at some future time someone shows you an item every one had and used and threw away. Kitchen and household gadgets are a prime example.

This is very much an activity for the opportunist or hoarder. Silly inventions that are never going to be a commercial success, save them. old gadgets that have been superseded, do not throw them away put them in a box in the loft and forget them for a few years. Most may still be junk but the odd one or two may have become very collectible. The value of an item with no value can only go up. When a problem arises in the future your collection may hod reference to how a similar problem was solved

The unexpected thrill in collecting new inventions, is that you never know where the product will lead, or the consequences. Which came first the tin or the tin opener?
