New Invention is a fairly small estate near Bloxwich, Walsall north of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. The main shopping area is a small square surround by shops on three sides. One of the shops is a barbers' shop, known as Mad Merve. Merve, and his two sons, Anthony and Merve (junior) run this shop.


Several pubs in the locality include The Crown & Sceptre and The Milestone.

CDNN :: Tired of Heavy Scuba Tanks? New Invention Lets You Breathe Like a Fish (757 words)
This new invention will use the relatively small amounts of air that already exist in water to supply oxygen to both scuba divers and submarines.
Patents for the invention have already been granted in Europe and a similar one is currently pending examination in the U.S. Meetings have already been held with most major diving manufacturers as well as with the Israeli Navy.
If everything goes according to plan, in a few years the new tankless breathing system will be operational and will be attached to a diver in the form of a vest that will enable him to stay underwater for a period of many hours.
Invention - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (909 words)
An invention may sometimes be based on earlier developments, collaborations or ideas, and the process of invention requires at least the awareness that an existing concept or method can be modified or transformed into a new invention.
Although a new or useful object or method may be developed to fulfill a specific purpose, the original idea may never be fully realised as a working invention, perhaps because the concept is in some way unrealistic or impractical (inventoritis).
Inventions are one of the chief examples of "positive externalities" (an economist's name for a beneficial side-effect that falls on those outside a transaction or activity).
