Turning the idea into reality

Quoting the great Einstein, “If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.”
New incentions, devices, software and more come into our lives every day to make it faster, more convenient and generally better.

Each and every one of the above is based on ideas by creative people. But having an idea is not enough. It is only the first step in a series of many.

An idea needs to have a backup. People that agree with it and want to see more. Then, there has to be a prototype , whether it is a device or a piece of code or algorithm. A small presentation helps in making the idea know to larger audiences. Then, if the idea is useful for the majority of the audience it can really take off and materialise in to a wonderful project.
