New Paintball product idea!!!

Hey guys,
I am studying design in my 6th design and technology and developing a new paintball product that could transform and help the Pro Player fill up their pods. At the moment the player is left to fill up his/her own pods. As you know this can be very problematic as it can cause paintballs to fall on the floor, which then become unusable.
My idea is to create a product where the player dumps their whole box, 1000 balls into a hopper where paintballs are then distributed into individual pods using a mechanism. This will mean no paintballs are lost to waste.
The product would be mounted to the wall of the Paintball Site and the player uses the product to fill their pods.
I know there are current product on the market but I am planning on developing a better product.
i have some questions...
how much would you pay??
where do you buy your paintball gear??
how would you develop this product??
any idea of how the mechanism would work??
how many paintball would you shoot on a normal day??
Please let me know what you think....any response will help......

I don't see the problem with losing 2 or 3 balls with a caddy?
