    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    I got a chance to deliver the product. The foreign country's defense force representative was pretty amazed. They are testing the product and making sure that it meets the high standards. Hope it goes well. Two weeks ago made my first sale. It took two years and a bunch of prototypes but it...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    A week ago I received the export license. It took some time but finally, I´ve got things sorted out. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, there are restrictions which, won't allow me to enter the country. Now I have to wait till the restrictions are lifted. I hope this COVID-19 situation does not...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    A week ago I received a product sample request from a foreign country's defense force. I was pretty excited and still am. After some digging and phone calls, it turns out, that you can´t just send a product like that to another country. Tons of paperwork needs to be done. Business...

    I've just received an email. It took some effort, but finally my little awesome invention has a legit NATO stock number.

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    Trial and error again and again but finally I have a working product and a user manual. The military wants to test the product for a couple of months and then hopefully can I make my first sale. Meanwhile, I need to apply for a NATO stock number(NSN) so that other NATO members could see it in...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    When starting with this project I was fortuned enough to talk to some people that are in that kind of business. They said: 1) a patent will help but the real aim should be to saturate the market as fast as possible. 2)the high entry barrier cancels out most of the competition. 3)there are some...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    Final stage testing went well. The weather was sunny and the CNC milled product worked flawlessly. Everyone was happy. So I went to a company, that produces plastic injection molds and showed the CNC milled parts to them hoping that the long CAD drawing nights would be finally over. It turns...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    It's been a while since my last post. I´ve been improving and presenting my prototype to different military officers and forces. The MOD contract helps here a lot. Next month will be the final stage testing. Hopefully, everything works out. The aim is to present the actual product at the Defence...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    The ministry of defence approved my application! Unbelievable. The defence committee approves only ideas or prototypes that have a high export potential and my prototype is one of them. Compared to others applicants I'm basically a nobody. But finally I'm getting a chance to be in the game...

    HOT TOPIC Have Smartphones Destroyed Humanity?

    My friends' kid turned two the other day. As a present, I gave him a children's animal book. He tried to swipe the pictures but the animals did not move and after that, he tossed the book away. Sad.

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    Demo day DONE. Lots of positive feedback even from high ranking military officers. There are some safety issues that need to be solved but overall the product works. The officers pre ordered 1000 pieces for the local army. Right now I'm writing an application for defence industry development...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    The 3D printed prototype was brittle but it kinda worked. I needed something stronger. After some research I found that a plastic called PA6 should work but it had to be milled from a solid block. I contacted seven different milling companies and all of them said that they can't do it because...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    I sent an e-mail to my country's Defence Investment Centre. They actually liked my prototype and asked if I could make a demo day on the field. The only problem was that my prototype was made of metal. They told me that it had to be plastic. I needed a 3D printed prototype. I downloaded a CAD...

    The product itself is ready, but the production process has to be simplified. I think plastic injection molding is the solution. In a long term it´s cheaper than CNC milling. Thanks
