In 2009, entrepreneur Ben Kaufman launched Quirky.com, a product development company that encourages average folks to submit ideas for gizmos that would make life easier by solving everyday problems. Each episode of the series follows the 24-year-old Quirky captain and his team as they pick two ideas out of the scores submitted to them online, in an effort to make the inventions pay off for everyone – the original inventor and the other members of the Quirky online community who’ve contributed input for the final product. Quirky, the series, shines the spotlight on everyday ingenuity.
