Looking for an easy way to create an USB-to-cloud-bridge (just one example). I once again found that the market fails to deliver some simple products I am willing to pay for. If I had time and knowledge I could become a producer, build the product and create a project on Kickstarter or a similar site to fund manufacturing. But I would prefer someone else to act as producer - If me and enough other people are interested to buy it and it is not too complicated for someone else to build it, there should be some way to connect us, right?
Are there methods for presenting and sharing product ideas by consumers? Kickstarter and similar crowdfunding sites start with a producer looking for consumers, but what if consumers are looking for a producer? I think that all ideas shared at the platform should become open to avoid getting patented or copyrighted by a third party.
