How to create variants

Play with infinity in a few steps


1. You provide keywords of your idea.


Cloem proposes existing patent claims which are related to your idea.

If no relevant patent claims are found, different templates are proposed.




Patent claims are "definitions" which are supposedly clear and concise. They comprise vocabulary and grammar which are generally accepted if not required by patent offices. Patent claims are a good starting point to create variants.





2. You select a patent claim of your choice.


Cloem shows you "invention patterns" extracted from a corpus of millions of patents.





Take your time and challenge your idea with the very essential and universal "keywords" in the patent world. You can skip this, but if you go through the 700+ patterns you may considerably enrich your idea.





3. You can modify and otherwise improve your selected patent claim.


Cloem proposes repositories of words which are relevant for your modified or final patent claim.






Benefit from our dictionaries which we derived from patent classification classes, with know-how and mathematics. Patent Offices think in silos: you can advantageously mix-up different technical domains (e.g. medical device with information technology) 






4. You select one or more word repositories.


Cloem computes words in selected repositories which are relevant for your idea.







Consider our suggestions of words, extracted from adjacent inventions and other parameters. Many suggestions can be discarded but you will find good new ideas there.






5. You select the words to be used in variants.

You can add new words. 

You can import words from a document (e.g. a patent application).


From your improved patent claim and selected vocabulary, Cloem creates a fantastic number of textual variants. 








With your text and selected words, Cloem:

  • creates a fantastic number of variants, in every grammatically possible manner; 
  • optionally timestamps all variants;
  • creates a unique URL for each variant;
  • indexes all variants; 
  • outputs a confidential report with sample texts.

Your advantages: 

  • you get a confidential "sample report" (in pdf portable format) comprising an infinitesimal fraction - but a tentatively representative selection - of textual variants; you can search in it; you can publish it in full or in part (please add a link to our website);
  • you can search all textual variants once created (credentials are required because variants are confidential by default);
  • you can get new ideas (during the creation steps, by reading or searching the sample report, by searching variants in the database);
  • you can improve your initial idea (make sure you check Cloem before you file a costly patent application)
  • you can patent one or more patentable variants;
  • you can secure your idea if you decide to publish the confidential sample report or parts thereof (with or without a patent application);
  • you can secure your idea even better if you decide to publish all textual variants, with Cloem.
