Be Part Of New Innovations - Ep.1 Need A New Knife?
If you are like me and your innovative ideas never see the light of day, why not become part of new innovations, and support those brave people on kickstarter and elsewhere?
This month I am backing this new shape of knife, THE BOLO, as I call it.
What can bolo do for me?
The innovators from Zinovta claim to have reinvented the wheel and the knife by combining the two of them. The result is a knife that literally rolls itself through everything. If you watch their promotion video down below you will see that it even rolls through carrots and pumpkin. Very impressive.
Personally, I have backed this innovation not because they managed to do something new with the wheel, but because this shape supports my wrists fantastically. Whether you are a Chef or a housewife or in a cooking club, your daily kitchen work is going to strain your wrists a lot. Combine that with your day job computer work and your wrists are doomed. PC ergonomics are not new and many people have started using those weirdly shaped keyboards and funny looking PC mice. Finally, ergonomics has entered the kitchen.

I want BOLO, but I have no interest in Kickstarter
Being part of kickstarter is really not such a big deal as some people might think. You indicate a small amount of money you would like to give to the project you are supporting. If that project has collected its targeted amount of funding, the project goes through and your money is actually deducted from your account. If there are not enough people backing the project and it fails on kickstarter, you won't be charged a penny. Simple. As a thank you for backing their project, the inventors will give you a choice of rewards, usually the product you are supporting.
What does that mean for you? Not only have you helped the clever inventors funding their project, but you will be one of the first people holding that new project in hand, and that at a discount rate!
Of course, you can always wait until the project is eventually on the market. If the funding round fails, though, you can blame your potted plant for having done nothing to support what you actually wanted to buy anyways.
