I can see the whole thing laid out in my head. I know how it will work, and I know that it will work. But I don't have the resources to build a prototype. And those people whose services I'd need to hire out to get one built are the same people who would profit most from this invention. So, I need a patent before I can go any further.
What this means, basically, is a long series of delays. Most of which are caused by money, but some are just part of the process taking a while.
I need a serious distraction now. Any suggestions?
