I have 10 years experience in the Unity3D engine as an amateur hobbyist, I’ve published a few casual app games and even made a short cartoon in it. However I’m not comfortable with doing complex programming...

    The Prototype Is done, Now What?

    I've finished the prototype for my product and it works beautifully. I'm going to see if this product has viability by selling the 3d-printed versions on Amazon. Here's my current issue though, what do I do after? How do I go from the 3D-printed proto version to a fully injection...

    Soft Proof and Prototype

    Hi fastlaners. I have a product in mind, it doesn't fill a "need" but I think it warrants a pretty good "want". I am looking into getting a prototype made but before spending all that money I need some soft proof that there actually will be demand for it. However, I can see that as soon as I...

    Shall I make the prototype myself? / Some good, trusted companies in the U.K?

    So, I think I've thought of an invention after following the advise in Un-scripted - (when you notice a problem / predicament / something that doesn't exist yet, then ACT!) The invention(product) is fairly simple in design (with range options) and I imagine easy to manufacture and produce -...
