The 30-Second Breakdown!
You have an idea for an invention that will make your personal life easier, bring you great joy and entertainment, or that can be mass produced to make you a millionaire by next weekend. What you do not have is the electronics prowess, tools, or time to build such a device and so you’re in need of help. I am the guy that is going to help you and I’m going to do so on a much more personal level and at a much lower cost than my competition with their fancy buildings and enormous financial overhead.
What type of inventions can you prototype??
I am able to build from scratch pretty much any device that relies on wood (any), plastics (polycarbonate or acrylic), and/or electronics. I can do some metals but my shop is limiting me on that right now, perhaps in the near future after a few more prototyping projects I’ll be able to upgrade in that direction. If you’re uncertain of whether I can help you with your project get in touch with me and we’ll figure it out. Circuit boards are always initially designed using one of many prototyping breakout boards and breadboards to save you costs, before the conclusion of the project I will convert all electronics to a custom circuit board for a truly authentic invention.
Some examples of products that I’ve invented or am in the process of inventing include: Remote Vehicle Access via Smartphone, Live Video Feed Drones, Live Video Feed Submersibles, Word Clocks, and more…
How much will it cost me and how long will it take?
I wasn’t going to put this section in here because there is no possible way for me to provide you with a project cost or time-line without a project description. I imagine it’s fairly obvious that time and materials alone would vary greatly if you were building an alarm clock compared to building an underwater exploration vehicle. I did choose to include this section however to state that my process is 100% transparent. I will outline my step-by-step process below and I am confident that it will make you feel comfortable about my pricing structure and the lack of any real financial commitment until you’re able to see exactly what every penny is being used for.
So what’s this process of yours?
I’ve established a step-by-step process over the years that protects both parties and serve both of our interests at the same time. The goal of this process is to establish a layer of transparency between you and I even if we’re hundreds of miles apart. Throughout the entire project it is important to remember that this is your idea, your project, your million dollars; you will be involved in every step and in every decision. Your questions will be answered and your concerns put to rest as they arise, there is no step below that excludes those rights at any time. The process is as follows:
Step One: Determine the Possibility
Step Two: Accepting & Protecting Your Idea
Step Three: Evaluation & Estimation
Step Four: Approval & Ordering
Step Five: Housing Construction
Step Six: Electronic Prototyping
Step Seven: Custom Electronics
Step Eight: Make Pretty
Step Nine: The Exchange
What are the chances of you stealing my idea?
The list of reasons why I will not steal your idea is ridiculously long but I’ll share a few with you.
- I do not have time to market, manufacture, sell, or get that involved with yet another idea no matter how good it is.
- You have the option of signing an NDA prior to us even discussing your idea in detail. I do not have time and cannot afford legal battles.
- Your idea although probably great and original to you, is most likely not that original. People think of amazing ideas all the time but ignore, forget, or let them go because they haven’t the time, ability, or inclination to bring them to fruition.
- Even at the most basic overview level, your idea was originally sent to me via email, thus admissible in court. See bullet point 2 regarding legal battles.
Why are you so affordable?
The truth of it is, I have a full-time job doing other things that I am really good at. This is a hobby and way for me to get involved with really great, new, and exciting projects while making some extra money so I can take my family on well deserved vacations. The likelihood of me ever charging thousands of dollars to build something that you can turn around and sell for millions is extremely low, my labor rates run in the ballpark of $64/hr which if you’ve looked around, is quite the steal for an electronics engineer.
What is NOT included?
I am not and will not get involved in your patent process if you intend to go that route. U.S. Patents are as far from fun and interesting to me as it gets and that’s yet another reason I care not to steal your idea. Everything involving a patent including the research for authenticity of idea, filing of the paperwork, laws governing it, and so forth are on you. If you give me the budget and instruction to build then I will build, if you later find out that John Do invented that four months ago then I can brainstorm with you on a way to make it better or different but that’s the extent of it.
You should also understand that the end result will be a prototype. I do not have plastic molding or steel milling services, your product will probably not be showroom quality. It will however be in the best possible condition that I am capable of proving because I take pride in my work, and it will function as well or better than originally intended. You will be able to take your new prototype to an investor and not have to try to explain your idea from drawings alone but instead from a real working model.
Let’s start the prototyping process now…
