New Invention Ideas

I love solving problems and the more innovative the solution the better. Whether it is something to help a difficult medical condition, a way to help with the issues associated with aging, or a way to extend or enhance the use of electronics (along with many other things), I am on the trail.

So what will science, technology, and creativity be bringing out next? I'll be on the lookout for the new, the innovative, and the cutting-edge. If you are looking for smart products that solve everyday problems, stay tuned to this blog and I'll keep you updated.

Want This New . . . Ummm . . . Idea? Potato Salad

Yes, this is as strange as it sounds -- this story is true. A man by the quirky name of Zack Danger Brown wanted to make some potato salad.

Where it went from there was the stuff of which legends are made.

It rather resembles a giant Solo cup that you might play beer pong with.
