Since 1985, Discovery Channel™ has been exploring the wonders of our world and all it has to offer. Inspired by the promise of adventure, we continue to celebrate this remarkable journey with Discovery Expedition – the adventure brand that enables consumers to extend the journey beyond their living room with an innovative collection of products specifically designed to explore their world.
Adventure awaits. Discovery Expedition is looking for new products and technologies that improve life in the great outdoors. Electronics for those exploring the wilderness have greatly improved since the days of a simple flashlight and two-way radio. Discovery Expedition challenges you to now invent the next big hit in technology specifically tailored to outdoor adventure-seekers.
Think of ways to equip your outdoor lifestyle, whether for communication, navigation or entertainment. What products will be the next must-haves for the adventurer in all of us? How can products like weather radios be improved or enhanced, or in what ways can advances in GPS navigation be taken to new levels?
Get down and dirty with the great outdoors and think of what could help campers, hikers and thrill-seekers in their quest to become one with nature.
Discovery Expedition is seeking your innovations for outdoor electronics or technology— so gear up and submit your ideas today.

We ask for well-communicated ideas. This includes filling out our easy-to-use submission form to the best of your ability. Upload images, sketches and any other media that support your idea. Tell us your story. We even encourage you to create a video demonstrating your innovation. Don’t worry. We aren’t expecting you to break out your inner Spielberg. Please keep videos to less than 2 minutes.
As always, your submission should be unique and protectable (patent protection is helpful but not a requirement).
Each idea costs just $25 ($20 for Edison Insiders) to submit. If you are an Edison Nation Insider, your idea may be submitted to as many searches as you would like at no additional cost. Click here for more details on Live Product Searches.

Is my idea secure?
Yes! Every idea that is submitted to Edison Nation remains private. If your idea is selected to be presented to a partner, we have strict NDAs in place. Your intellectual property is extremely important to us.
If my idea is selected, what do I get?
If your idea is selected for licensing, we will remain in contact with you and our partner from the moment the deal is signed until it is ready for the marketplace. Our team negotiates competitive royalty structures and all licensing revenues are split 50/50 with you, the original inventor.
Why do I have to pay $25?
$25 is a nominal fee to help offset the costs Edison Nation takes on to review each idea that's submitted. It is a one-time cost. If your idea is selected for licensing, we will navigate the road to commercialization -- all at no cost to you. If you are an Edison Nation Insider, the submission fee is only $20!
What do I need to submit?
We'll review all ideas, whether it's a sketch on a napkin or a prototyped invention. You don't need a patent to submit an idea to Edison Nation.
