Read: Send us your brainchildren!
We have a long, glorious tradition of inventing and then making awesome stuff here at ThinkGeek. You've probably seen our Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt and the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag around the internets. Heck, you probably have one of those in your house right now. Our inventions are that popular.
What we need to know is if you've ever had a spectacularly geeky idea, but have never had the means, time, or patience to make it happen. Why?
We're opening up our product launching process to outside evil geniuses just like you with our new IdeaFactory!
Prepare to unleash your creative madness.
Here is how it works:
- You submit your idea: We'll need a written description and an image of the idea. The image can be a rendering or a detailed drawing.
- ThinkGeek will review your idea, make sure it passes our caveats, and respond within 60 days.
- If we choose to make the product, you get paid.
You heard that right. Paid. We'll pay you an advance of $1000 and then 10% of retail sales for the life of your product up to $1 million in Net Sales. When your product reaches $1 million (yay!), the rate drops to 5%.
Take a gander at the ThinkGeek Idea Factory page for all of the fine details, including why this is awesome for you, how you will be paid, and the important legal stuff. Then? Start sending us your ideas! We want your brains and we want them badly!
