It's been quite a while coming, but the ambitious CrowdSpirit project has finally moved from the hype-building stage to the beta testing stage. For those that missed it the first time around, the project aims to apply crowdsourcing to the development of gadgets and consumer electronics, with individuals able to submit ideas for products that then get voted on by the community at large. If a product makes it all the way through the process, the contributors to it will then earn "a share" of the product revenue. Judging from the current pace of things, however, that possibility seems to still be quite a ways off.
