Sell your robot design
November 17, 2011
Consider this an initial test, and if it works out well, we will get more organized and set things in a system. But for now..:
If you have a robot that you think would make a great gadget as a finished product, you now have the option of selling this design to our friends at Seed Studio.
They will eventually need this:
A finished and working prototype, Gerber files, Eagle files, and Bill of Materials.
But first they need to approve the product.
So the way you move ahead is as follows:
- Find your own, or somebody else's cool robot / something else.
- If you are not capable of doing the preliminary work, or if the project is not your own, you will need to gather a team, ensuring that together you can deliver what Seed Studio needs, as described above.
- Contact Fritsl with a link to a video of a working prototype, and a short letter describing who is on your team.
- Wait, and we will get back to you.
If the project looks promising, you will make an agreement with Seed Studio, who will put it into production, and sell it. You share the profit with Seed Studio, apart from 10% that goes to run LMR. Everything is transparent.
We mainly need 2 types of product categories:
A) "Gadgets"; Stuff that people will buy for fun. Stuff that takes no experience to operate. Cool stuff, useful stuff, fun gadgets.
B) Products aimed at Makers/hackers; Cool stuff, ready to run out of the box, but perhaps it's programmable, or maybe it's easy to take a part and make something else from.
Robots are in focus, there is a reason for this opportunity to be here, on this site.
Best of luck to any one, or team entering, and we are looking forward to hearing from you :)
