Well, nobody works for free, but if you are willing to trade off some of the ownership or rights to the
product you may get help.
Yon can also sale the idea out right. If you carefully protect yourself, using nondisclosure forms, you could
market the idea to camping equipment manufacturers.
I have been in the proto-typing bizz for many years, and have helped many people develope their
products. And before I start working on a project, I must study it's market value and wheather it can be made
at a exceptable cost using todays tech. Some projects that were not doable 5 yrs. ago, now are, do to
new manufacturing processes.
I'll take a peek at it, if you want, but don't get your hopes too high. You must remember that marketing the
product is the biggist challenge you will be facing.
