As I was looking around the website Quirky, I kept using words like Genius! and Awesome!
This web site helps people develop and produce super interesting product ideas. And better–lets those of us who simply appreciate super interesting product ideas, buy them.
You’ll find everything from electronics and accessories, to kitchen gadgets, to cool stuff for parents and kids like the splash stacks that save your knees while you’re bathing the babies. But what’s really interesting – not all of it is made yet. Basically the community commits to purchasing something and if enough people do, it goes into production.
Even if you don’t have your own invention, being a member of Quirky means that you can vote on product ideas, product designs, taglines, logos, and other elements of members’ product development. But if all
you want to do is shop you can do that too.
It’s like a wonderland for nerds like me. They even have a referral program where you can earn money by getting your friends and family to buy items for sale. It’s like Groupon, but for stuff that doesn’t even exist yet!
The product I really flipped for- the one I’m going to buy for myself and several friends the minute I’m done writing this, is DigiDudes (above), a cute key chain with a retractable tripod in it. Think of how helpful it would be to have one when you’re with your family over the holidays and
you’re trying to get everyone in the same shot. Nerds rejoice!
