iRobot Presents THAT’s iNGENIOUS Challenge: Win $10,000 for Charity & A Few Prizes for Yourself!

Last month Nicole had the opportunity to go to Boston for an exclusive event at the iRobot Headquarters. There she met a few cool and admirable bloggers who would also be participating in the That’s iNGENIOUS Challenge.

What the heck is the That’s iNGENIOUS Challenge?

This challenge is all about getting your brilliant [mommy] thinking caps on and sharing with us those brilliant ideas you use in your every day life whether it’s at home or at work that just makes life a little more (or a lot more) simple. As a mom of twins, I have a created an item or two, usually it’s something that I’ve rigged up, in order to make my life a little more easier. But now, we want to hear from you.

Take for example.. the paperclip. Such a simple item.. yet useful in so many ways – now That’s iNEGENIOUS! Sure paperclips are supposed to be used to keep that pesky paperwork organized and together.. but how many times have you used it for other things? I think at one time I unraveled a paperclip and used it as a button for my pants so they would stay up. My husband has even used it as a hook for his fishing pole a few times.

So get those mommy thinking caps on and bring on the ideas! The ideas can be for anything.. big, small, gigantic or tiny.

  • Have an idea for a product that hasn’t been created yet but would make your life easier if it was available?
  • Did you find a creative way to add more space to your home?
  • Can you think of a gadget that would make mommy life a little easier (sorry but robot ideas can’t be accepted)
  • Have something in mind that would make life a little easier for you when you’re traveling?
  • Something you’re pet could sure use to help make their life a little easier?
  • Something for your community, your school.. etc.
