    Hi guys,

    I am not technical so need someone who would like to get involved with a great little project.

    I would like you to design and build a small electrical device (explained later) which can be presented as a prototype to various people I know with mid to large scale manufacturing and marketing experience.

    You would retain 10% share of the business for your involvement.

    I will provide you with full details of the initial design proposal and do all the 'leg work' in building the business. All you would need to do it take the idea and build it.

    If you think you have a good level of engineering for small gadgets, have a skill in simplifying a product, enjoy improving products etc .. then read on.

    In order to give you an sense of the project (without giving away my idea) I will explain the type of thing I need in a nutshell.

    Note: The actual device will have two unique additions (not mentioned below) which make it unique and unlike anything else on the market.

    We'll be building a simple analog switch using something like a Force-sensing resistor to enable someone to switch on/off a set of small LED lights (or similar). The device would be put in someone's trainers and the lights will be on the outside of the trainers. This has been done lots before but as I said, I have a unique twist on this idea.

    Important notes;

    - I am based in Eastbourne so best it you are no further North than London
    - You will need to sign an NDA before full idea explained
    - I need someone who can finish a project and understands that design/build simplicity is key
    - You will have an interest in keeping costs down. For example, perhaps a long FSA can be cut into shorter strips to reduce cost. The price of the final product is essential in determining it's viability as a business.

    Let me know if interested guys! We'll chat and I will hopefully find the right person (or persons) to move forward with.
