It's already too late. I've had those ideas a few times in my life too. Someone somewhere is tapping your mind or the cosmic consciousness makes it so all ideas are already known and once you have it so do others. So you're not the only one. Somewhere someone else also had that thought too.
All you can do now is act on it as quick as possible. Otherwise someone else will and you're screwed. That's if it hasn't already been done which is possible. Google it to make sure.....But of course then it's out there.....

First of all, it depends what kind of product you are talking about. If you mean a physical piece of material or mechanism of some sort, then the best way to approach it would be to do all the prototyping yourself. That would require some sort of workshop, materials for construction... that sort of thing, in order that you can actually build the prototypes yourself, to prevent others from having any idea what it is you are even working on. Depending on what it is you are building, you may wish to purchase a 3D printer, to make your prototyping process more rapid and less labour intensive, but that does depend largely on the manner of product you are trying to make.
Doing all the physical work, the design, building and testing of the item yourself, would mean that you could take the thing to the patent people, without anyone ever getting wind of what you are up to!

Let me guess. The OP's secret idea is to create space travel by creating a mass generator that distorts the space-time continuum and pulls the object generating the field as the space craft projects the mass generator/distorter.
