Making money off my invention ideas
Posted 09 June 2012 - 07:59 PM
I'm a bit of an artist, so I can at least draw some of these ideas on graph paper but that's as far as I can go with making these ideas a reality.
I really do want to make some money from my ideas however I don't want to sell my butthole on the streets for $20 a pop just to pony up the cash to make it happen.
Any advice? Your input is appreciated.

OK, just gave it a quick look from the link you provided. Looks very promising. At least ONE of my ideas should be a good fit for the program. Thanks.

“Kickstarter requires additional information from Design and Technology projects so backers can make informed decisions about the projects they support. These requirements include detailed information about the creator’s background and experience, a manufacturing plan (for hardware projects), and a functional prototype.”

Since you say fabricate a prototype I assume your inventions are real world mechanical devices?

Just be warned; if have an improvement on something already existing, there's a really good chance it's going to end up with a ultimatum of "give it to us for free or be sued into oblivion." The patent system is broken.

I know there is a maker/hack group with a free-to-use space in London, for instance. A couple of people I know have been along to it.
You could also get your hands on some free/open source 3D modelling software and model your prototypes. Once you have that you might be able to find somebody local with a 3D printer, or use a service like Shapeways.
Another good place to try and insert yourself is an art college, they will very likely have workshops and good kit for making things of all sorts. Obviously enrolling for classes would be the easiest way in, but you can probably make friends and get access.
