Quirky is a very interesting site and concept. Almost a reverse crowdfunding approach where you – the concept person -submit your really great idea for a product and if the Crowdsource gods agree that your project does have merit. It gets produced. Community curation, product evolution, research, design, manufacturing and sales; the entire process baked into Quirky. If your product is an enormous success you get to benefit but the Quirky team does all of the heavy lifting. If you become rich -well Quirky suggests you “Send us Cakes! Then go to Disneyland.”
