Hey all. If you have great ideas and don’t want to wait until the next LPS, you can pitch them over at Quirky.com. Yes, it costs $99, but each week, there are on average 30 submissions, and one of them gets chosen to be developed. And if it is your idea that gets chosen, you can make around 10% of sales if it goes into production (after about 600-700 get preordered by the community).
I am the inventor of Monster Pong (Season 2) and also had my idea chosen by Spencer’s (in EN’s first LPS), and I am STILL waiting for either to be up for purchase. :(
But at Quirky.com, one of my designs (for an IPad case) is currently going into production, and an invention of mine (The Wrapster, an earphone cord management device) is 200 presales away from production, all within 2 months of my pitches. They move fast over at Quirky! Check out Quirky and The Wrapster here: http://snipurl.com/umhwy
