Ever wonder how an invention magically appears on "As Seen on TV" "HSN" or "QVC"

Maybe you'd like to hear, "Hi, Anthony Sullivan here with . . . your product!"

Unfortunately, there's no magic behind it. No, there's no wand to flick and no potions available. There is, however, a formula. A time-honored step by step way. It's not easy, it's generally not quick, but it's there.


  • An idea that has potential in the market place
  • Perseverance
  • Capital
  • Hard work
  • Knowledge of the market
  • and TIME
As easy as some people make it out to be, it's a difficult process- if you don't have the right resources. 

What resources are right for my product?
The successful ones! (What?) Yes, yes! The resources such as the companies that have brought a product to market; the resources with individuals that have "been there, done that" and the resources that might not follow the elusive yellow brick road

The fact is, it's hard to obtain an investor, it's hard to gather the funds necessary, and if it were so easy to get an investor or licensing agreement- wouldn't EVERYONE do it?!

We're not saying it's impossible, but we are saying it's going be an . . . adventure. Are you ready? Because we are

Planes, Strolls, and Automobiles

We have always loved learning about new products and providing clients with the services they need for product development. Our adventures through this process have led us to many places; most recently South Carolina, Illinois, and Texas. The passion we feel for each product is daily translated to the service we provide, including presenting products to store and company buyers and representatives. We are excited everyday to do everything we may for our clients and their products. Soon, we will be traveling to not only Illinois once again, but Florida as well.

Our trip to Florida will take us to the sunny and beautiful city of Miami where we will not only be presenting products, but discussing the future of our 3D capabilities and tasks. When in Illinois, our meetings will take us to the windy Chicago to speak with an inventors association and present overall industry information. For even more updates on the company, our products, and overall news, continue to visit our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.

Israel Pacheco & Night Hawk

We would like to introduce Israel Junior Pacheco IV, a client of Rhodes Invention Design & Development, LLC and inventor of Night Hawk (more details coming soon!).

Pacheco was born in Needville, Texas in 1976. He spent the majority of his youth traveling the nation, seeing and experiencing many things. His first real job was as an electrician with his father’s company. After several years in this field, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and serve his country; in 2000 he enlisted into the U.S. Army. After basic training in Ft. Leonardwood, Pacheco was sent to an army training school in Ft. Eustis, Virginia. Afterwards, he was assigned to a permanent duty station in Hawaii. By 2004, his unit was deployed to Afghanistan to fight in the war on terrorism.

Pacheco has always had a fascination with building and creating new and exciting things to help people in their everyday lives. For many years, he sketched and documented these items he dreamed of inventing. It was not until recently that he re-opened his book of inventions and started turning them into working prototypes. His motivating factor for this further action: his family and friends.

His first product of fruition: Night Hawk. Night Hawk was created while Pacheco was on an American base in Iraq in 2009. This idea was conceived from the poor lighting conditions faced by Pacheco and other individuals on the base. His first design, although cumbersome, proved to be very effective for its initial design. Now, with updated versions, Night Hawk is not only effective, but stylish. The product has been a great addition to Pacheco’s hunting and fishing trips.

Not including the prototypes in Iraq, Pacheco has built two additional prototypes for personal use; each one better than the prior. After realizing such a need for the item, Pacheco decided to take his take his product to the next level. He spent exhausting hours researching the steps necessary to bring his idea to market. With patience, he obtained useful information regarding the necessary processes for multiple routes of development. He quickly learned that protection, a professional patent search, and further research were the first things on a long list of tasks to complete. After this, Pacheco came to the realization that he would not be able to perform this task alone, so he hired the necessary individuals. After performing further research and completing his list of tasks, Pacheco knew he had to be getting close to the finish line. Unfortunately, he quickly realized his process was only a quarter of the way complete. He spent a considerable amount of time in-limbo with the work he’s completed and nowhere to go.

With a second wind, Pacheco began to revamp his strategy. He ended up speaking with the team at RIDD. Before delving into the development process again, he began researching the company. After receiving positive responses, he knew he had to make a decision. He decided to begin the process again, this time with RIDD.

Pacheco’s product is currently being developed at a wonderful pace. His happiness with the company and process has spread to his family and friends and will soon result in the new development of a completely different innovation.
