Al Contarino, You're a Season 4 "Everyday Edison!"

Edison Nation CEO Louis Foreman gives Al Contarino the news that he's been selected as a featured inventor on Season 4 of Everyday Edisons.

Al's Story

Al Contarino has been creating new things for as long as he can remember. As a child, Al and his dad were in the basement taking motors apart, or building something together in their garage.

Though he spent most of his career helping run his family's electronics business, Al never lost interest in inventing. He came up with an idea for a unique cooking invention, filed for a patent, and devised a prototype. However, the prototype didn't yet meet the design requirements for manufacturing. After some feedback, Al filed for a second patent and worked on two additional prototypes. Still lacking a good plan to bring the idea to market, Al decided to take his prototype to an Everyday Edisons casting call.
