The second season of a popular invention show is casting everyday inventors who have the next BIG INVENTION! Our hosting team will meet with each selected inventor to learn about how they came up with their invention and then put the invention to the test to see if it really works. They will then decide if they want to use their connections to fund the invention and bring it to the marketplace.

You must have a working prototype of your invention to be considered---homemade or manufactured. We can't accept ideas or drawings.
