You are partly right!
We indeed want to know ideas for the next big market - the bigger the better :). But, i would think we are fair nevertheless: it will stay *your* idea and IP after all to be used at your discretion!
We will "only" get a license to use your idea and hope to sell "a few" xstrs along - sure!
the possible new applications require a fresh and un-channeled energy...we believe that this is particularly true for students and starters, and maybe to a lesser degree for the experienced engineers… :-) pls prove us wrong by all means! We’d love to see your wicked and crazy ideas
actually they dont say just like that, they say, hey u, brainy fellows, help me out to implement my technology and create new markets, also ill find out who might get job offer from me... Except starters and students its funny
