I love the music, and love the demo. If it were me I'd do a side by side comparison matching up yours with a leading roller.

Thanks Joe,
Actually I'm working on my web page with the comparison about prices you could check it at: http://www.atlantapaintersdcp.com/Green-Roller.html

The price difference isn't clear. Obviously I was able to add everything up and see that you save $$...especially over the long term. If you want to make price a selling point however it would be useful to make this simpler. Specifically I would have a picture with all of the normal components required on the left, and a total price, and similar picture of your components on the right and total price. Then in big large letters below I'd post something showing the total amount saved.

Speaking of price, the real value for your invention is the re-usability, and lower long term cost. I'd definitely mention that if you're painting one room you'll save a little bit, if you're painting an entire house you'll save a lot more.

I'd also talk about functionality aspects somewhere, perhaps in an FAQ page. You're eventually going to have to answer certain questions. For example 1) how does its coverage compare to a standard roller? 2) How long does it last compared to a standard roller? 3) Will the plastic roller break down when using or cleaning with paint thinner?

Again, I like you're idea and now there's a ton of work to be done to make it successful. Good luck.

Thanks Gizmo, when Roger post me the link I checked all this, anyway I think my invention is different than the prior art, and I understood that here in the USA who invent first is who obtain the patent not who filed first, thanks to all for all your comments.

Thanks again Joe, I understand what you talking about, But as you could know I'm a painting contractor, and I find my product very useful for my business, and I would like to start promoting my product with painting contractors too, I know home owners could buy it, but they don’t going to see too much difference as the painting contractors can see, as you said if you paint an entire house you save more so that’s the point. I know I have to do a lot homework too, and I'm working on it you could check my webpage to check my updates.

Thanks so much!!!
