Have you ever had one of those moments of, “I wish someone would come up with a solution for ___________”  Or maybe you have the solution, but just don’t know what to do with it.  Quirky is a company to fill that need.  The site lets you submit your idea, either fully formed or a napkin doodle, for consideration by the Quirky community.  From their website, “Every Thursday, we gather a group of industry experts, friends, and community members at our Headquarters in New York. Watch live as we drink beer and debate the best ideas that have been submitted. Before we’re allowed to go home, we’ve chosen the next products that we’ll begin working on.”  Even if you don’t have an idea, you can become part of the Quirky community and help hone someone else’s idea.  If it’s successful and you contributed, you participate in any profits!  Pretty Cool!

The site also has a shopping section where you can purchase some of the quirky products.  Each product has a picture of the inventor and a little about them.  Products on the site range from a spiral hotdog slicer (Cyclone) to an app controlled window air conditioner (Aros) which brings the smart wi-fi thermostat technology to your window unit.

Quirky is a fun site that might earn you some money.  I think I’m going to sign up.  Maybe I’ll see you around the Quirky Community!
