As of this month, my design patent has been abandonded. My prototype for a new (old) type/style of smartwatch is languishing for over a year now. I have a goid idea (I think) but I ran out of resources, stamina, cash, good advice, etc. etc... all the things I could have found at this forum - instead I worked from 4am to 9pm daily for nearly 2 years.
I need some sage advice about whether or not my idaea is recoverable in some way that is worth the time and effort to pursue.
I realize you'll need a lot more info, which I will be happy to provide as needed. Let me just add for now that I went to CES in 2016 and saw another company with what appeared to be the same idea. Well 2+ years later they also have design and functional patents, as well as numerous awards, etc.
The product is a (classic) round smartwatch on which the numbers function simultaneously as a watch, a telephone dial, and a circular keyboard. It uses an algorithm that allows each key to stand for three keys.
More if/when someone anyone asks...
