How Research Works

As with any good project, research is the starting point for realizing a great idea. During this stage of development, we are interested in discovering consumer preferences, potential use cases, and design directions for a new product. We will ask you questions straight from our design staff or the inventors themselves.

Of course, we don't expect you to share your knowledge for free: By sharing your insights with us you'll earn yourself some influence! All participants split 5% amongst themselves. The more questions you complete, the more influence you will earn!
