Hi unkl,

I just ran into a discussion regarding a company that used to advertise here in Instructables, offering services to turn ideas into commercial products. Sounds just like what you're looking for, so you may want to check them out. I know I've seen other companies offering similar services as well.

However, before you go that route, I think it's worth reading Eric's reality-check on these guys:

It's a great post with a lot of valuable comments. I think I am best off building a few myself. Thanks

I've been thinking that integrating multiple color LEDs into a single design might be useful for drawing with light. Maybe something like a fatter version of the classical 4-color Bic pen...

Specifically these light pens I designed. I would like to keep the cost down too. Ponoko looks interesting and easy.

well, again, what do you mean by commerical, like big thing, billions manufactured? OR just hundreds that you sell on a website or ebay or something? To make it simple you could make an automatic tube cutter, and stuff. I'm actually looking into mass producing some of my inventions this summer when my cnc machine is done. (I'm about 70% done)
