If you have a good idea you can try to rack up funding and more to help bring your concept to market via Kickstarter.

How does Kickstarter work? People and companies talk up a product or project with video and images, allowing viewers to decide if they like an idea and are willing to pledge funds.

Although small pledges are just donations, larger pledges are actually considered pre-orders for a device or product once it is actually completed and hits the market.
