Why does nobody care about your product? To answer that, let's start at the beginning...
We come out of the womb fresh and innocent, in constant need of other's care. We grow to 4 feet tall, and find ourselves standing toe-to-toe with our sibling in the sandbox arguing over whose turn it is to be Luke Skywalker. We spend most of high school in front of the mirror counting the constellation of pimples on our forehead.
In college, we choose a career that will make us feel important and make us wealthy, so people will like us for our bank accounts and not our fading looks. And then we get married, have kids, and pass our beliefs on to them so they can carry this torch to future generations.
We humans are simple creatures. At the end of the day, the majority of what our little pea brains really care about are three things:
Me. Myself. And I.

Nobody cares that it took a team of leprechauns twelve years to invent your flying machine. Or that your flying machine has seats made from the leather of pink unicorns. What they care about is whether or not your flying machine will make them feel young again, make their spouse notice them again, and will make their children look up to them again.
