Definition of Invention:

  1. The action of inventing something, typically a process or device.

  2. New scientific or technical idea, and the means of its embodiment or accomplishment. To be patentable, an invention must be novel, have utility, and be non-obvious. To be called an invention, an idea only needs to be proven as workable. But to be called an innovation, it must also be replicable at an economical cost, and must satisfy a specific need. Thats why only a few inventions lead to innovations because not all of them are economically feasible.
