I am coming up on one year of posting, but am quickly running out of steam. Lately, I have been debating retiring SparkBugg, but will continue, albeit with less frequent postings, for now.

I am still grateful to have any readers at all. Thank you.

561. Bright Idea: the Binibottle October 18, 2007

Designed by a 15 y.o. Swede, this bottle has a side opening so you can fit it under you household faucets. It is sold in Sweden for $5. I doubt it will come to the US. Why? Because the tap water here sucks. Unless the Binibottle soon includes a little Brita filter, I am passing on this one. Via SciFiTech.

Awww. What a cute and Bright Idea: snuggling with your baby like you’re both in a burrito. Not so Bright Idea: the gender-exclusionary name. Unless they also make the Papaponcho, I am a little irritated and hurt. Buy it HERE (€200+); via Babygadget.

The inner stainless steel is insulated by a melamine shell. Bonus: it’s dishwasher safe. Store these in your freezer for even longer lasting cool for your frozen comfort food. Buy it HERE ($10); via Slashfood.

I wondered about this idea a few months ago with some friends who are new parents. They said I should invent it.

Too late. Of course it already exists. Buy it HERE ($4); via NerdApproved.

Meanwhile, I am fine-tuning my newest idea: cutting loaves of bread into slices and selling it that way.

553. Bright Idea: Snowtone Wastebasket October 10, 2007

It was love at first sight, for me. I need this wastebasket right next to all my toilets. The only thing that would make this product even better? An integrated magazine rack on the side, of course.

In fact, this product is so beautiful to me, I am also tagging it as “Art.” By Snowtone; Via MoCoLoco.

550. Bright Idea: the Workout 180 October 4, 2007

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Product, Video.

Here is another Everyday Edisons product: the Workout 180. This clip is a taste of the next best-selling workout apparatus, which you will likely see in a late-night infomercial. The inventor (read about her here) showed up with a foam step as a prototype (for instability), and the Everyday Edisons team helped it evolve into this multi-use device, the Workout 180. Even I, being one lazy and soft slug, am tempted to buy one. This clip is 4 minutes long.

Here are some great Japanese Rube Goldbergs from some TV show. There are a bunch of them on this clip, which is about 9 minutes long (ok, so this clip is not so “quickie”). It has close to a million views on Youtube; Via HackedGadgets.
