"Or you could just do what lockitron did (since kickstarter doesn't allow "home improvement" projects) and roll your own crowd funding mechanism. Or use indigogo, etc."

Kickstarter: More Rules, Anti-Science

KICKSTARTER: More rules, anti-scienceI read an article recently about the Kickstarter web site in which a controversy arose over a project that involved genetic engineering. The founders of Kickstarter are very arts-oriented, and in fact the initial objective of the site was to provide artists the opportunity to fund their art projects. It was only later that more techie projects also took hold on the site. So, the artsy-folks took exception to a genetic engineering project and complained that…See More

$1.7M to Redesign the Department of Education website

What would you charge to redesign an existing website, to give it an updated look? How about $1.7 million. That's what the Hawaii Department of Education just paid to have their website, http://www.hawaiipublicschools.org/, redesigned. Now, I've built a few websites over the years, nothing quite as extensive as the DOT website, and I know that it can take some effort. But there are tools and plug-ins and apps that make it more like drag-and-drop…See More

Inventors

The road from concept to successful product is a long and difficult one. This group tries to make that trip a bit easier by bringing together inventors, marketers, and business people to share their knowledge and experience.

About Me:
If anyone in here is old enough to remember Interface Age magazine (late 70s) you may recall a monthly column titled "The Inventor's Sketchpad". Well, I wrote that column. I also wrote a book, "The Complete Starship: A Simulation Project" way back then, describing how a simulation could be constructed using personal computers.

Ah yes, I remember now. I simulated a tic tac toe machine that worked by beads dropping into buckets. No hurry on the scan, I have a copy in storage...in Seattle. But it would be fun to see it again.

Thanks!

Roger, I just noticed your profile. I had an article published in Interface Age. It was for a game on Altair/Imsai type machines with a video card (Lee Felsenstein's in my case). The game was Snake and you used the front panel switches to direct the snake. They published the hex code for it and I know at least one person entered in all that hex because he wrote a letter pointing out a bug. I knew about the bug but had left it in as a kind of cheat, it let the snake out of one corner. Oh heck, it might even have been Octal they listed. So, yes, I remember Interface age!

E komo mai Roger! We hope you find some fellow inventors and robotics guys in our community.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. You may want to join some of the interest groups such as User Experience Design and Robotics.

We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. See you in the groups and forums!
