It’s a rough life here at Quirky. A surprise holiday gift arrived from Mister Fred Ende, ideator of the popular holiday gift, Click ‘n Cook.
We did our best to wait until the rest of the team was back in the office, but a week is a long time to wait for delicious cinnamon bun waffles and pancakes. So we busted out Read More...
We’re making great progress on Product 81, the speakers we will be debuting at CES.
Upon posting the original CMF options, we read through the comments and found that they were very in favor of a neutral color palette. The reasoning was clear: we needed a product that worked in any context. For this reason we pick Read More...
Quirkaholics may have noticed the updated countdown clocks on our Invent page. We are collecting ideas for one additional week for general product round 87 and shoe organization round 88. That’s one more week to gather your thoughts, learn from our eval recap videos, and submit your genius ideas.
Make us proud!

A couple minutes ago, Nikki shouted out that Space Bars are officially out the door, and the whole office cheered (starting with a slow clap, of course).
It’s been a long journey since Space Bar hit threshold in March, and we are so, SO excited to get this one out into the world. A big congrats to ideator Mike Cavada!
