I today patented a “idea” for a viable product with what i think to be worth having a go at. I need a couple of people with skills i don’t have. some market research into feasibility of the product is necessary but most of it i can do myself. but if anyones interested in having a caht about this it maybe satisfying.
I have a master of design and an undergraduate in marketing. would anyone interested be interested in haveing a discussion. people with engineering/cad drafting/sales skills be down for a chat some time?
When you say you patented it today, do you mean your patent was approved today, or you submitted your application today? I too enjoy these type of discussion. Please provide patent number to further discussion.
I would rather chat at hsbne face to face really. Ideally get a couple of people together.
If anyone can spare the time and thinks they may have the drive to develop a idea to presentation stage to clients that’d b ideal.
Of course there are options for development.
Maybe I am crazy, but there is a large market for the product and possibly financial benifits for team members (I guess ill need contracts), and as I am a little hazy right now I don’t know what direction to take it.
Yeah. I was planning to drop in.
It’s a bit difficult to organise things though when various people come in at various times.
If I do get people who are interested to arranage a chat I will set a time.
Up to you, I doubt you will get much interest here on the forums, if you don’t feel like just popping in, your call, if you do it won’t be a wasted evening, always something interesting happening, even if you don’t find someone who’s keen on your project.
Let me just ask a question. If you were to assign it a technology readyness level. Which level would it be on?
Please give this a google before answering. Also know TLR 3 to 4 is the hardest transition.
the level of technological readiness i was considering was; being able to provide materials and details of construction techniques to a manufacturer of the product which is a modification of an existing product.
I have had some time to think and have discussed it. discussions prove helpful, and if a team of skilled developers were able to get together the level of ideal TLR maybe up 4 debate.
the product design formulated by the team and the steps 3 and 5 will formulate goals in relation to the TLR. cost and benefit factors in relation to development would be considered i guess.
