Production Update: Bobble Brush Timer

As many of you know, Bobble Brush, one of Quirky’s earliest products, is getting a line extension!

Meet Carli Heggen: Quirky’s New Social Media Strategist

4 years ago, when I moved to New York City from Portland, Oregon,  I brought only a small suitcase of clothes and shoes. I left my many beloved objects behind because I had just received the best stroke of luck that someone moving to New York could ask for: old college friends who were handing […]

A Case That Clicks: Introducing… Frame

Sporting 8 megapixels, improved capture speeds, and stellar low-light performance, the iPhone 5’s camera performs with the best of them, but the ergonomics of handling such a thin device can leave something to be desired.

Case Math: Style > (Fit+Feel) > Function

While they do offer a few functional cases, Incase has built their consumer base selling simple, stylized cases. When you tell inventors to work within the Apple accessory space, they instinctually begin thinking about features that can augment the abilities of the Apple device. I certainly did. Unfortunately though, most units within this category of business […]

A Food Truck on the 17th Floor

One of Quirky’s favorite neighbors, Martha Stewart Living, is headquartered in the building just south of ours. The 81-year-old, 19-story Starrett-Lehigh building is so big you can drive a truck right onto the freight elevator. Which is exactly what the Takumi Taco truck did. Every weekday, the Takumi Taco truck serves its Japanese-inspired tacos in […]
