October 2009 was the first time I put my Rubber-Ringer idea to the test looking around my basement for stuff to use.
The fun had begun and creating prototypes is invigorating. I simply cut out a piece from a bicycle tube, put in a few stitches and the lamp holder was done. This was so easy to do I figured this had to be really cheap to manufacture.
What happens next?
I really had no idea so I looked for guidance and found my first professional adviser at ALMI, a Swedish government funded institute that helps stupid people with good ideas. But that’s another story for the soon coming category ”Professional help”.
