PATENT FOR SALE

General Purpose Rake

The General Purpose Rake is particularly adept at removing creeping weeds, such as the notorious "creeping Charlie." It picks up pine needles and bumps them off into a waste can. Landscapers say it works well for cultivating mulch and refreshing it and breaks down clumps of dirt quicker than a traditional rake or hoe.

He primarily uses Innocentive and IdeaConnection. Both platforms are for general research and innovation problems, and Byrum particularly likes the team-based and certified solver capabilities of IdeaConnection.

Does Crowdsourcing Need a Cash Prize to Work?

By Oguz A. Acar, Dirk Deichmann

If you are looking for a larger selection of ideas to choose from, put up a big prize. If you don’t mind a smaller selection of original ideas or don’t have the resources to vet a lot of ideas, offering no prize will work.
