Quirky is looking for smart product ideas to present
on Katie Couric's daytime talk show.

This challenge has ended, but there's an open call for inventions at Quirky.com!

Got an idea for a smart product?


We’re looking for smart people like you to invent smart products for the modern home. Imagine everyday things that could connect to an app on your mobile device, so you’d have extra time to focus on what you want to, not what you have to. Need some inspiration to get started?


What if your fridge did the grocery shopping?


Why can’t you clean more with the touch of a button?


Imagine if your kids' toys put themselves away...


Wouldn't it be neat if your plate counted calories?

Tune in to Katie on November 4th to see the top three ideas and find out who gets crowned a Quirky inventor!
