>Any well-networked, high-energy smoozers know of a product opportunity?
Well, I`m not much of a smoozer but I DO know of a few product opportunities.
How about a barbeque grill which can burn wood, charcoal or gas - has a patented ventilation design which enables you to cook a steak in 9 minutes without the `flame licking` (and generation of suspected carcinogens) typical of conventional grills? This same grill contains an oven for roasting veggies (or whatever else) and is sized just right for tailgate parties. It`s also won awards from the government of the European Union.
How about an electric version of the same grill for indoor use?
I`ve a contact in Ireland who designed them and has UK patents. He`s looking for a low cost manufacturer. I have another contact whose family owns factories in China. Trouble is my Chinese friend needs cash on the barrelhead to produce an initial run and the Irish guy doesn`t have it.
I`ve also some product designs and proven expertise in product design. Two of my creations are now commercial successes through a variety of firms including a VERY large computer company. Both designs are now industry standards in the computer graphics and data communication fields.
How about a way to keep your laptop from overheating your lap?
How about a room humidifier which uses no electricity yet can moisten the air in a hospital room/office/bedroom to relieve the dryness of forced air heating systems? This one I developed when my Mom was in hospital on Oxygen. The air was so dry it hurt to breath and the staff wouldn`t permit conventional (electric) vapourisers so I designed this one. A lot of people were impressed and a few years afterwards I found an electric fan version being marketed at WalMart.
I can innovate - just can`t put a business plan together (Hare here) or take care of the mundane day to day issues.
How about a simple modification to your car/truck/boat/plane engine that could yield 40% more horsepower and fuel efficiency?
How about a system to generate electricity from passing cars/trucks/trains?
The more I learn, the less I know I know - but I`m trying :-)
