The old adage, ‘necessity is said to be the mother of invention’, was true for local inventor Wendy Lemke after she dropped and broke an expensive LED bulb while recovering from an ankle injury. “There I was on a knee scooter, surrounded by shards of glass, and upset about breaking an expensive bulb when I decided that I could find a better way,” said Lemke.
Lemke took her idea to the 3D Printing Store in Englewood, and now, one year later, she has a product ready to sell.
The 3D Printing Store developed the initial sketches and 3D print of the bulbNEST prototype. Lemke credits Debra Wilcox, co-owner of the 3D Printing Store, with helping her get her product out of the idea stage, and ready to launch.
“We are known as the ‘place to print your ideas,’ and the bulbNEST is a perfect example of our motto in action,” says Wilcox. “We are committed to helping entrepreneurs like Wendy put their business ideas in motion to help build Colorado’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
With its bright yellow lid and holes on the sides of the box, this chic and compact organizer is easy to spot and grab from shelves. The bulbNEST Classic holds the most commonly used household bulbs: 6 standard and 2 spotlights.
The bulbNEST is available for purchase at bulbnest.com, and is under contract with two major retailers for national distribution later this year.
