Hey there guys. So my Q-tip sized sandpaper sticks idea has moved into the community design phase. If you guys care to participate in the process you can be taken to the submission page here. If you’re a quirky member this is your opportunity to earn some influence and make that cash. So if you got an interesting idea for my invention, give it a shot.
Keeping your kicks looking proper could be a serious challenge to all those dedicated to their shoes. To long and the laces just look whack, to short? well, your just fucked. Theirs definitely a proper length of lace required to making your kicks look clean and about a month ago I submitted an idea to Quirky that worked towards solving this very problem. If your not familiar; it’s my shoe lace cutter and tip crimper idea. Basically a device that allows you to cut laces to your own desired length and seal on a new anglet, this tool allows people to customize their shoe laces in a way they never had the opportunity before. Yesterday was an exciting day for me because yesterday this very idea went it to Quirky live brainstorm. I’m excited to see how the design direction on this invention will turn out and who knows how it may impact the shoe market. I only hope for the best. Just in case you guys missed it though you can watch the recording here. P.s it starts at about 21 minutes. Enjoy!
I like to think a little out there when it comes to my idea submissions sometimes. This idea here deals with storage and needing a place to put all our little nick-nacks. Inspired by homes window treatments,I have concepted a new twist on traditional shelving. Hope you like it!
Quirky idea numero 50. Today marks the 50th idea I’ve even submitted to Quirky, and being a member only since February of this year I could say that so far it has been a fun ride. I’ve learned a lot about the kind of ideas I think of and I have fond a love of mine; designing kitchenware. This idea may not be meant for the kitchen but I sure do love concepting home consumer goods. Guess all those years of staring at product at Target when I was a child is starting to pay off. Hope you enjoy this one guys.
When you fall down you gotta make sure you get back right on your feet. Yesterday I got news from Quirky that one of my ideas got cut from “UC,” But great news seconds ago I got another email from quirky saying they put my Ergonomic sponge idea under consideration. Out with the old (rejected) and in with the new as they say (idea with potential). I’m gonna keep my fingers crossed on this one and let’s hope this one moves up the Quirky design stages. Click on the pic to see the original submission.
hey guys so my flattop knife attachment idea that quirky had under consideration got cut. No worries though, they all can’t be winners. I’ve been learning so much from posting my ideas on Quirky and I’m thankful I posted another idea that got their attention. If you want to read their comments regarding my submission you can click on the link here. On the better side of things it’s looks like my juice carafe idea is still being tossed around by them and is still in the “UC” section on their site. Let’s hope that one moves forward. I’m gonna keep my fingers crossed!
Quirky Pro swag has now arrived by mail! For the low price of $99 I have unlimited opportunities to submit as many inventions as I want. I see that as a deal considering that there is no penalty for striking out. I now have a new shirt, pen and sketchbook to add to my collection. Thanks Quirky!
Hey there guys! Just wanted to share something I found while looking on quirkys pinterest page. I’m not sure if you have seen the first submission that quirky picked of mine; the hangable plateware idea? But if not you can see the original blog post here. What I wanted to share with you guys though is that they also have a pinterest page with all their inspirations for my concept. Pretty cool. You should check it out. Click the link to be taken to the page.
So to get to the point I’m pretty particular about the length of my shoelaces when it comes to tying my shoes. Too long and the tied loops are overly huge; to short and there isn’t just enough loop. This idea goes out to all the shoe heads in the world and those who are meticulous about their style.
Great news again guys. Quirky put another one of my ideas under consideration. So far I have two in development and two under the UC phase. Let’s hope those other two move into under development. As always I was happy to get an email from quirky about my idea. Click on the pic to go to the original submission. Gonna keep my fingers crossed!
I’m not sure If I’m just an anal guy, or I just see a bunch of problems everywhere. But there’s something about parties and wondering which cup is mine that bothers me. If you hate tagging your cup with an ugly sticker of accessory, than this idea is for you.
I think you already know I have a thing for kitchenware. Truth is it’s not like I’m any master chef or anything. But here’s another concept for those who like kitchen gadgets as much as I do.
Great news guys! My flattop knife attachment idea has been put under consideration by quirky. If you click on the pic it will take you to the UC area of Quirky where you can view the original idea. Funny thing about this idea. I submitted it about a month ago with no luck, but a couple days ago I felt the idea was still worth considering and re-submitted it to Quirky. Let’s hope this one makes it past the live evals and into the development phases!
I can’t even begin to tell you how many random ideas I have on any given day. It’s not like I was rug shopping or anything today, this is just one of the ideas that popped into my head. Conceptual brain farts.
I don’t have to take pills on a daily basis like some people do, but what I do know is that I would probably be in serious trouble if I did. I hate when I leave the house without my phone, So I couldn’t even imagine how bad someone would freak out if they left home without their medication. Inspired by my daily routine before I leave the house (phone, wallet, keys). Check! . I wanted to dream up some sort of solution for those who need to medicate when away from home.
Everyone has their preference when it comes to Americas most loved breakfast drink. That Highly packed vitamin-C drink has been a staple of breakfast tables for years, unfortunately, the battle ground on the tables of many has been fought over what desired “Pulp level” gets to reign supreme (With pulp, little pulp or pulp free?). I say a one sized solution should be the answer and the key lies in the kind of container used to serve it.
I’m always advocating for our household items to pull double duty when they can. No longer can things just serve one purpose. In a world where the “Household storage unit industry” is the fastest growing in America. It’s a clear sign that we have to much stuff. Things need to suit multiple needs and help cut down on clutter. Reclaim your space.
I’m not gonna give up trying to sell Quirky on one of my sculptural kitchen product ideas. You might have seen my cutting board idea if you’ve looked through past submissions. Either how, this is round “I don’t know” on another kitchen concept.
Today I’m proud to say I wasn’t thinking about food; just about the place we go to get rid of food. If you don’t know me on a personal basis, clutter bothers me. If I had my way, I would have a bathroom close to something like in the movie 2001 space odyssey. Super minimal. This concept is the result of me trying to think of a way to free up counter clutter. Enjoy!
