interesting new site that invites anyone to submit and idea or contribute to an existing invention idea. profit sharing model (“influencers”) included.
the idea is to bring “community developed” products to the marketplace. Example: Marc Zech had an idea for a double-sided mini hard drive (one USB plug might hold personal data, the other work data). He submitted his notion to Quirky.com, and then, a few weeks later, the Split Stick is being manufactured.
currently running an ipod-themed contest: SUBMISSIONS WILL BE FREE.
