Unfortunately, my recent divorce has tapped me out. I need money to move forward. Building a proof of concept model caddy would not be too difficult, but marketing and making them would.
The issue that I need to resolve with the tape is an adhesive that will hold, without catching fire, during the shrink phase.
Yeah, I should have stayed single.

A heat gun is the preferred method, but you have to know your market. Most mechanics/technicians are going to use their lighters.
.... The trick to the adhesive would be to have the tape not fully cured on the inside,where when you put heat to it( preferably hot air) It would shrink and create the bond.
I noticed. He is of course money motivated. There is nothing wrong with that, everybody should be compensated for their efforts, but I lack money atm.
There is a guy on the first page that seems to know his stuff about marketing and such. check him out....couldn't hurt.
goes by niceguybob
LOL. That is actually better than what I was thinking of. Oh well, on to other things.

Not trying to discourage you, actually am trying to help with this... maybe you can find out and use whatever it is this tape uses...

You know how video camera's have "Steady-shot" or "Image Stabilization?
Well, why can't they incorporate that same overall idea into handguns/rifles? (I'm talking about the concept, not the actual technology - I'm aware that image stabilization and targeting a barrel are 2 completely different areas of engineering.)
The idea would be that the barrel would be mounted and supported inside the gun housing by a bunch of computer controlled adjustable arms. A scoping system would allow you to take initial aim at the target area. As soon as you engage the "stabilizer" it removes all the tiny shakes and stuff that happen while you are aiming at the target (heart beat, hand shake, etc). You can still move the aim, but it isn't "shaky" - it's a slow, smooth movement.
The advanced model could "lock on" to target (within in certain limits) so you could move the gun a few degrees in any direction and the barrel stays perfectly on target.
Anyways, that's my idea.

It uses GPS for location acquisition and encrypted burst transceivers for command and communication.
