#1Jim_JonesPosted 8/20/2013 7:13:53 PM
Lets pretend this is the year is 1995 and i had this great idea for gaming, i came up with the idea for the Xbox kinect or something similar before microsoft and them got to it. I drew up plans for this idea but have two problems, i have very limited tech skills when it comes to programing, coding yada yada but have access to limited capital.

How do i go about making a functioning prototype or better yet who do i seek?

Once i have this prototype how do i market it to the video game companies or whoever can get it to the gamers?

I don't believe you need a prototype to get a patent. A patent basically says it was your idea first. It has to be detailed and you have to spend a fair amount of money to patent something. Also, most ideas you'll come up with probably already have a patent for them, so good luck!
