Ben Kaufman Talks Invention on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Posted ago by Baron

Yesterday, Quirky founder Ben Kaufman took late night by storm as a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (yeah ma, we made it to Leno!). After chatting about Quirky’s mission and process, Ben and Jay ran through a gallery of awesome inventions, from fan favorites Stem and Pivot Power to the upcoming safety product Signal. The segment has a few more surprises in store, and we don’t want to spoil the fun, so if you missed out on the late night spectacle, you can watch the full segment below!

Nice plug, Jay sounded like he said Corky instead of Quirky though. New England accent lol

Hope you guys are negotiating to make this a regular segment on Leno. I think the balance of real coming to shelves products and "the bad" ones makes it of great appeal for an ongoing feature!

Please, Ben, don't EVER go on Leno again! I knew exactly what was going to happen, and it did! Every nutjob with a half-baked idea he has been saving up is now a "contributing" member of Quirky! Have you seen the quality of ideas since last week? Into the dumper!! Almost without exception, not one of these people have taken the time to read any part of the website, check the shop, or look through any previous ideas submitted. One way I know that is that I make about 20 revision suggestions each day. This week, not only has it become very hard to find ideas worth fixing, but very few people seem to know that they need to accept them. My ratio of revisions sent to accepred has dropped this week. Yes, I keep track. And every crazy idea or perpetual motion machine submitted this week has been from someone who has joined this week! Please, Ben, we do not need more junk to wade through. Let Quirky grow slowly, and better, not fast and sloppy. My only hope is that all these people will leave quickly, when they realize their ideas are going nowhere.

You are sensational Ben. kimi :)

Well done, well done.
Travis West
I feel that Jay really enjoyed meeting you and seeing what Quirky is all about! This was great advertisement! I think he will have you back real soon for more!

Great job Ben, it's good to get some more exposure for Quirky. Ken, Quirky is growing pretty quickly and always has - to get more potential inventors and consumers is ultimately a great thing for this community. I was in the first 3,000 people to join Quirky back in 2009, and now there are more than 100 times the number of members (according to your profile, you're a relatively new member too) - so I've seen this community grow rapidly over all of that time. Ultimately more members mean more ideas (both good and bad), and more exposure means more sales. Quirky has $91 mill in funding (http://www.crunchbase.com/company/quirky) and can afford to develop a lot of products. It relies on a large user base to do so - after all, it's all about the community. What's wrong with growing that community?
