Well, this proves you really need more than a great idea or product. If these stupid things sell better than your brainchild you have to work harder on your marketing skills.
Invention vs innovation
Any one can come up with an invention, it certainly doesn’t have to be a good one. The trick to elevate it into an innovation is to make sure many others use and benefit from it. Well, they don’t really have to benifit from it. In the case of these crappy infomercial items, the video clip above shows, the inventors have done a great job marketing their horrible stuff. Most likely more than a few idiots have purchased them and thus turned these piece of shit inventions into innovations.
Complaining is futile
You and I can surely come up with something better. But before we complain about it we should try getting your super usable invention that will birng world peace and improve the every day life of humanity in to an innovation. That is the truly hard part.
