I have an idea for a small computer / gadget that I want made. I only know what I want this gadget to do but no idea of how to do it. 


1. Design of the gadget exterior look. 

2. The computer inside and the screen. 

3. The software that needs to be developed for its puropse. 


What is the estimated budget for making such a prototype ? Are there places where I can get funding for these kind of projects ? How can I protect my idea ?

You really need to post this description of your project as a job posting on the main website.


Clearly state that you want to hire people who you can simply talk to about the project, without them actually doing work.

Then officially hire 6 to 10 freelancers and talk to them, so you can get better ideas and be better informed about what you need to do.


You can talk to freelancers for just 10 minutes. Or an hour. Or as long as you need to in order to get their ideas and form a better mental picture of what needs to be done.


For a project like this it is very important that you hire multiple people to help you!
