Hi there, I am brand new to the forums and actually BRAND new to Arduino and "hardware hacking" in general, I have/am been a long time inventor though but mostly in the past my inventions have only been notebook inventions, or basic prototypes. But now that I have ordered all the stuff for my "Makers Kit", I think my inventions will go much much further. Right now I am in college for Small Business and currently writing a business plan that will be used after graduation to start up my own 'Hacker Space" type business though it will be a for profit business so I call it a Makerstudio anyways I wanted to at least give a little run down on myself but basically this post is to find someone who is very well acquainted with the Arduino and "making" in general and could help build a project that I think would make some good money if finished and was awesomeness. I am hoping to find a great partner to work with here and we can chat about the project over Skype or what ever and if it is something someone else thinks would be fun to move forward with then my plans are to move forward as you would with a normal invention and have rough sketches/drawings then get the electrical/bugs worked out and finalized, get a prototype working then make up a nice 3D Model of a finalized vision of the product and then I plan to take all of that and come up with a kick ass Kickstarter and we go from there. I do not want to go to much in details on the products in the forums because if it is not something out there already I would really like to be the one who releases it to the world! hehe, even if we keep it open sourced or what ever, I still would like to be the one to announce it, etc.
So if you are interested in working on the project just know that you would basically be the brains behind the hardware and you would be the one actually doing the "building" of it, but we will both work on it over skype, etc. to get it to where we both feel comfortable. We will discuss funds of the project after we decide to go forward or not, I maybe able to get a campaign together for the prototype even too, so capital doesn't need to come for either of us for it hopefully. So I just want you to know that I am BRAND new to Arduino, etc as stated above so I wouldn't be able to give much help with sketches and stuff, but I am a LONG time inventor with a great imagination and the idea I THINK....is solid.
So best way to contact me is eLabRat@GetDiggin.com
and we can chat about the project and hopefully get it going if you think it would be something worth pursuing & you want to take on the project!
