“Everybody has a great idea that could change the way we work, the way we live or the way we play. Everyday Edisons documents the development process of 14 inventions and the parallel stories of the people who invented them as they are taken from a sketch on a napkin to a store shelf.”
If your the type that craves to see, watch, and understand the creative methodology of a product idea to market, take a glimpse at the new documentry invention show Everyday Edisons on PBS (a Bouncing Brain Production), which follows a handful of inventors through their journey to bring their ideas to shelves for everyone to buy. Unlike some reality shows, there are no winners or losers and no cheesey competitions. This show follows and documents the story behind each individual over the time of a year working with a large team of people to make their products a reality with the real prize being a spot on store shelves.
The series started a few weeks back, so check out your pbs listings for your local air times(usually on Saturday). Even though the first season has not finished, it seems the show has licensed through some pretty good channels, skymall, and a few of the inventions have popped up on Amazon though not available at the moment.
update: They have their very own YouTube Channel to watch and subscribe to!!!!
This looks really interesting, I’m hoping that they rebroadcast the series soon.
yeah, I’m not sure if they will rebraodcast the first few episodes from previous weeks, but a little bird has infomred me tht they are in talks wiht online video sources such as google video, youtube, etc to make them available online…looke at ABC.com and nbc.com …you can watch any of their shows online now 1-2 days after they are broadcast… 😉
I finally caught a few episodes of the show and guess what…it’s really good…no competition, just good ole thinking and documenting incredible jounrnies while being educationla at the same time. REAL IDEAS that are making it into the market…
I agree – I’ve set the DVR to record any new episodes and the fiancÃ© and I have watched 3 episodes so far. It’s really interesting to see how all the parts (idea, industrial design, engineering, marketing) come together to form a product. I’m definitely hoping to catch the next season. My favorites from the bunch were Pressix, Vicious Tools – Murtaugh (sp?), Archivo, & Beffudlum (sp?).
for sure, …i’ve only seen 2 episodes, but will catch up hopefully this weekend. Their webpage just released a partB for the first season, hence there are over 20 invnetions worked on this yr, and next yr will be amazing as well 😉
I meant 14 inventions, involving over 20 inventors! 😉
