Product developement
« on: March 20, 2013, 02:08:56 AM »
Hello,

First of all I dont know much about robotics nor programming nor mechanics, but I have come up with a viable way to produce something amazing and this post here is me fishing to see if anyone else would be interested in trying to make it happen. let's call it looking for like minded people.

Now I know you all probably have heard of this Kuratas mecha, I am only  naming it to give an idea of what I am proposing. The goal would be to produce a prototype of a real operable mech, with the goal of not just fun and enjoyment, but applicable in all of the fields.

I have done some market research and I have found that there are out there many technologies that would in the end allow us to build a real working prototype. All that is required of us is to bring all the different technologies together into one mech and make it work.

so in conclusion, I am not looking to invent new technology, but instead I want to create new product for the market that I see would prosper in few years.

I will try to answer to any questions you might have so please do ask them.

So what exactly are You proposing? Is it to build Kuratas mech clone?  ???

[...] with the goal of not just fun and enjoyment, but applicable in all of the fields.
All fields? Like changing diapers, cutting grass, washing dishes, giving a haircut, selling kebabs, fixing cars, etc... Everyone would be happy to have 13-foot 4.4 ton heavily armed $1.35 million robot trimming their hedge or walking their dog ;D

I have done some market research and I have found that there are out there many technologies that would in the end allow us to build a real working prototype. All that is required of us is to bring all the different technologies together into one mech and make it work.
They already did and called it Kuratas mech  :)

so in conclusion, I am not looking to invent new technology, but instead I want to create new product for the market that I see would prosper in few years.
I think many people would be interested in collaboration as long as You are willing to finance the project  ;) And also, in what ways do You see it prosper in the future?  :)

I certainly would :-)

When it comes to project success, there are four main things needed:

- Experience
- Leadership
- Expertise
- Resources

Which of those four parts to you see yourself contributing to, and what track record do you have within those areas?

You're going to use solar cells for power, right?

I think he is saying he has all the financial resources, he just needs someone to build it ;D

Send me the money and I will get started right away!  8)
If your first post is, "I want to build a super complex robot with object recognition, etc..but I have never done programming or electronics...etc." 
Your doing it wrong. Start Simple and Work Up.

Well I was thinking of going for a bipedal giant mech and it would be powered by hydogencells. since solar cells would not produce enough.

as for kuratas from what I see that thing is more for those fans who just want to have a toy.

What I wanted to do was to work ourselves up to something which could be used in combat/rescue/indrustry.

I would see myself as a leader with innovation, not that there is any lack of it here or anywhere.

Sadly I do not have the resources, and you can call me crazy and ignore me, but I only have the idea and concept.
part of the reason me posting and joining this community was to see if any of you would be willing to give few pointers so that perhaps I could start this thing rolling.

I know that to get any real funding I would have to come up with detailed plans and find people/companies that would be willing to fund the whole project.

If I had endless supply of funding available I would have already started a corporation and gotten together people needed and the thing would be on its way.

That's great!

What's your track record so far, that shows you can bring together different people and make them work for a common goal?
Have you successfully fund-raised for a project before?

I'll be honest here: My guess from looking at your posts is that you have zero track record; have never run a team; and have never successfully fund-raised. If that is the case, your project is doomed from the start, because building what you suggest for real requires the best of the best in leadership, engineering, management, and execution. And, by definition, someone with zero experience is not the best, much less the best of the best.

I suggest you start with a very small project. Something that requires you to fund-raise $1,000 and manage a team of two friends to win a local competition, for example. If you can do that, then you can move up a little bit -- fund-raise $10k, and lead a team of a few people that you don't know. If you manage to do that successfully, step up the size of your goals each time, and you'll be at the $10 million multi-national distributed team five or six years from now. Short of winning the lottery, I think that's the only way you could get into the position you suggest for the project you suggest.
