From the site:
“Everyday Edisons documents the development process of 14 inventions and the parallel stories of the people who invented them. Selected from thousands, the 14 Everyday Edisons learn how their extraordinary ideas are taken from a sketch on a napkin to a store shelf…
The average person is unaware of the multi-step process by which a raw concept is transformed into a tangible product. The goal of Everyday Edisons is to introduce viewers to the process of invention and help them understand how to take their own ideas to the next level.”
What is the greatest invention you can invent or use? The one that is the most profound in its simplicity, and the most relevant in addressing a problem or challenge we all (or many of us) face in everyday life.
Even if the show isn’t airing any time soon in your area (you can put in your zip code and check), the website offers great info, including state-by-state resources for would-be inventors.
