Commit to buy & crowdfunding

+1  

Imagine you want something that doesn't exist. What do you do? It should be possible to commit to buy something at a price. Market research and product development is expensive, you need a guarantee you buy something at a price, buying signals are currently invisible.

YAML 想法

If you want something that doesn't exist, what do you do?

Can you afford to create it yourself?

You don't have a lot of flexibility if you want something that doesn't exist. You could try to talk to potential manufacturers or existing product companies or software companies to ask if they're interested in creating something to your requirements.

But you have to pay a lot of money to get this to come into fruition.

I propose a platform where you say what you want and how much you're willing to pay for it and it can be crowdfunded with others who want the same.

This should work like escrow. If someone does create the thing and it meets the requirements you purchase it

// 是的,就像 Groupon 和 mfg.com。

这个想法真的很有道理。 [ ] 而且,结合开源硬件,我们可以让硬件接近软件,在人们参与设计它的能力方面——最好的设计有很多“Groupon”参与者——所以,他们得到大量订购.

// Yes exactly like Groupon with mfg.com.

This idea really makes sense. [+] And, combining with open source hardware, we could probably have hardware approach the software, in the degree of people's ability to get involved into designing it -- best designs get many "Groupon" participants -- so, they get mass-ordered.


是的,就像 Groupon 和 mfg.com。

承诺购买价值数十亿美元 - 就像 Kickstarter 反向但有托管。我在我的想法列表中反向发布了 Kickstarter。

您可以监控不会在在线搜索引擎上显示很多结果的搜索词来创造大量资金。如果这些数据不公开,那将非常有价值。

Yes exactly like Groupon with mfg.com.

Commit to buy is worth billions - it's like Kickstarter in reverse but with escrow. I posted Kickstarter in reverse on my ideas list.

You could monitor search terms that don't reveal many results on online search engines to create lots of money. If that data was not public that would be really valuable.


你想的一样。是的,事实上,mfg.com 的工作方式有点像——把它想象成供应商的“UpWork”——你上传你的零件设计,它会自动列出所有的零件您的硬件组件供供应商竞标,用于制造它们。现在,当然,你必须有你想要的规范。 “规范”实际上是您的产品的一组“目标条件”或“目标条件”(在硬件中,有点像测试驱动软件开发中的测试),指定您的愿望。然后,您只需付款,他们就会将这些零件交付给您。

我想我有类似的想法,当我想——嘿,我应该能够让搜索引擎生成我搜索的东西,如果它们还不存在的话。

// 我建议一个平台,你可以在其中说出你想要什么以及愿意为此支付多少费用,并且可以与其他想要相同的人进行众筹。

像 mfg.com 与“Groupon”的结合?

You think alike. Yes, in fact, mfg.com works a bit like that -- think of it like "UpWork" for suppliers -- you upload your part designs, and it automatically lists all the parts of your hardware assembly for suppliers to bid, for manufacturing them. Now, sure, you have to have your specification of what you want. A "specification" is actually a set of "target conditions" or "goal conditions" for your products (in hardware, a bit like tests in test-driven software development), specifying your desire. Then, you just pay and they deliver those parts to you.

I think I had a similar thought, when I thought -- hey, I should be able to get a search engine generate things I search for, if they don't yet exist.

Like mfg.com combined with "Groupon"?
