QUIRKY Verse Ability

(Another kind of review-BY GUEST REVIEWER GABE WALTER in the form of inventions) ( Sure you can keep up with the latest reunions and demos, but to find out about ideas like a door that doubles as a smoothie dispenser, you'llhave to check get Quirky. I will only comment on the gadgets Im directly involved with to let you know how easy it is to get involved. Sign up. Post idea! That's it! From a "praying mantis" prayer box to a ladder that rotates pretty much any idea can be added. Now, this doesn't mean the idea will be chosen by the team of experts but you will get feedback on how to improve your ideas (For the $10.00 per post or 100$ yearly fee). Although my Rib Bibs idea (keep palms clean while fingers messy eating ribs) didn't get picked up, valuable comments were made on how it can have team logos or anything imprinted on it. Its the community that helps any site and you can see like minded quirky people. If an idea happens to be picked sure the company gets a profit but they say they'll send a share to the inventor too..and the product becomes a reality! That's the exciting part- due to 3d printing changing almost…everything there are things that were impossible to be done before. Now its easier to prototype a watch that dispenses vitamin pills at a certain hour… Once their prototype is tweaked and somewhat agreed upon by all parties involved it goes through a lot of steps (for instance getting electrical clearance for safety issues). Im still hazy on some of the process since no one has yet seen the benefit of a key that plays musical notes when you turn it on a lunchbox. But it just takes the right invention at the right time etc etc. So sketch up those napkins and post something online maybe you'll make the greatest invention since sliced bread. Hey, you can try to invent a bread that slices itself!

    Too cool!
    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on
    the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here
    and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Excellent work!
