Great idea. Now crowdsource it!

Flexible Power Strip – from Quirky

It has been found that the large majority of amateur inventions are created in the bathroom. Probably because that’s where we’re most relaxed and prone to the free flow of thoughts and ideas. The Patent Office is flooded with ideas for better toilet paper dispensers, razor holders and toothbrush containers. But perhaps you think outside the box. (Sorry, couldn’t resist that.)

If you are convinced you have the next great idea for a gadget or a widget, but lack the development/design/marketing skills to bring it to life, why not crowdsource it? At Quirky, thousands of people contribute, collaborate and vote on products that the Quirky team take to the next level.
