Quirky inventions – episode 1

Here in Quirk Heaven I get to see dozens of quirks worthy to be featured on a daily basis. But I only have 2 hands and so much time to do my homework. And thorough researching inventions is a phase I never skip in order to bring here curated information from multiple sources, and that’s part of the fun: reading reviews, seeing demos, comparing sources, checking the competition – is this quirk unique? – if not, why should I write about it and not about the other similar one? – does it fit all the criteria to win a spot in QH? – what are all the characteristics to watch out for when deciding to get it? For some posts this research takes days until rounded up. For some there simply isn’t enough information available or the quirk is so young that it’s not clear when it will hatch out of prototype/idea phase.

That’s how Quirk  inventions theme appeared.
