There are invention assistance services (that state right in their disclaimer that most inventions fail) who will help prototype and test market a product for a few thousands dollars, I don't know which are the more reliable ones and which ones are more predatory.
A unique new web based approach I just saw profiled on PBS, Quirky.com does "crowd sourcing product inception." free to join, they charge $10 per submission which gets reviewed by staff and other members who can earn money for improving on the idea, the profile featured a flexy power strip that accepts a mix of wall wart power adapter sizes, some members have earned $600,000.
Jake took the words out of my mouth.
Quirky has a great community and a cool strategy. If you haven't heard of them just follow the link.
I have also seen their products in more than one store on multiple separate occasions. So you know they are not just blowing hot air. They deliver.
I remember seeing George Davison a while ago. His site is below.
If you want any other assistance I would be more than happy to try and help. Just contact me.
I like inventors, inventions and creation in general. Why? They think differently.

The answer is the $65 Provisional Application for Patent to get you Patent Pending from the USPTO..
While I have the EXACT answer for you but there are folks who read my answers that tell you EXACTLY how to do what you want and delete them. Mostly lawyers and the like who do not want you to save money by doing things yourself.
So go to the USPTO website and see if you can figure it out without any assistance like everyone else tells you to do. I PROMISE you the US Government can NOT make anything easy. Not even the 1040-EZ tax forms. You need help and you can find it on YouTube by searching for Provisional Patent Video and see what you find. Or, search the term "Provisional Patent Video" and see what you find.
Sorry for not putting links but when I do my answer will get deleted.
Sadly too is the interns who REVIEW deleted answers are numb to the point where they do not even read what the question was and the answer. As such YOU LOSE because you do not benefit from reading answers and making that decision yourself.
My answers tell you how to take advantage of the Provisional Application for Patent, PPA, and I also have a link to a free NDA that you can use and modify.
I have a Provisional Patent Video Course that you can review and some folks use the link to go directly to the USPTO's website and file on their own.
The USPTO charges you $65 to file a PPA that gives you "Patent Pending"
Is that cool or what! The answer to your dreams! So google "Provisional Patent Video" and you will find the answer!
PM me and I will give you EXACT details so you may benefit and decide for yourself..
