Above are a selection of the twenty-four products I worked on at Quirky. The Quirky business model is novel; product ideas are submitted by an online community and one per week is selected to be developed. The online community is involved in that development process, and influence [share in any eventual profit] is awarded based on participation. When the development is finished, the product goes to the online store, where people can commit to it in presale to earn more influence. The product goes into production when it hits a presale threshold that will cover manufacturing costs. I also contributed to the Quirky blog, writing entries on injection molding, metal extrusion, and machining as a primer for the less manufacturing-savvy members of the community.
