..any of the listed "homebrew" re-manufactured replacement parts or newly-designed accessories, if there were to be produced by members of this community?
This thread is for market research purposes, and not about making money, but efficiently fulfilling a real need...
Everything is still in the R&D phase, but as you can probably understand, whether this works out in the end or not, largely depends on how many people would be willing to buy the products
There's no concrete guarantee yet that any of them will be built, but anything that gets enough votes will be considered. This is a community project, just like webOS Ports, and is in its earliest stages. I won't be taking time away from my software projects, i'm not ADD. I just want to get the ball rolling and more people involved in this, so that the venture takes on a life of its own and becomes "commercially" viable.
This was originally Toadfrogjr's idea, to create a DYI replacement for the rare, scarce and expensive Veer headphone adapter. I joined in on the R&D effort and offered up some ideas as well as any relevant knowledge and personal experience. It quickly grew into an interesting discussion, with theories and facts being floated, a lot of brainstorming. So i thought i'd bring it here as a more open and less technical discussion
P.S. Any of the electronic components used in the making of these accessories already exist in some capacity... this isn't some expensive research project, but mostly testing and fabrication.
Any comments are welcome
