Quirky – crowdsourced product service showing how it’s done


We covered the online crowdsourced product development service Quirky when it launched last year, so it’s pleasing to report that it seems to be going from strength to strength.


What’s interesting is not just that people are coming forward with product ideas for the crowd to vote on and promote, but the fact that the products are actually interesting and in some cases downright cool. There’s a lot of creativity out there languishing for lack of a convenient home.

Check it out, you might end up getting an idea of yours made (and you get to keep all the intellectual property rights too!)

  Quirky is a social product development company. Your product ideas come in, the Quirky community and team work on them, we sell the product worldwide, and then we share the revenue with the inventor and all influencers. By enabling this fluid conversation between our global community of influencers and Quirky’s expert product design team, we are able to accomplish what was once unthinkable: bringing one brand new product concept from sketch to store each week.
