Are any of you participating in this? The New York Times is hosting an everyday innovation challenge that several of you may be interested in.
For a special issue on June 3, we invite you to share an innovation that you have made in your daily life. Maybe you’ve figured out a way to make waking up more pleasant by jury-rigging your alarm clock. Or maybe you’ve invented a foolproof method for shining your shoes, or for finding time to exercise. It could be a gadget you’ve fashioned, or something less tangible. We want to hear what you’ve come up with.
Yes, but more importantly, we want to hear what you’ve come up with.
The judges for this are Paola Antonelli, Curator for the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA; James Dyson, of never-lose-suction-vacuum fame; Ben Kaufman of Quirky; and Martha Stewart, who is Martha Stewart.
You all have submitted thousands of things to Thingiverse that would knock readers’ socks off. In fact, Thingiverse is a veritable catalog of relevant submissions for this challenge. Perhaps you have favorite things from Thingiverse that you think ought to be recognized! If you leave a comment here, I’ll get in touch with that Thingiverse user and urge them to participate.
