    I got an idea for a hardware device

    I have an idea. I have a piece of hardware I would like to create along with the software that would make use of this hardware.

    How can I get my idea rolling and make a prototype?

    Find an electrical engineer and start talking to him/her.

    So am I correct that I need an electrical engineer to design this? The hardware part that is.
