Edison Nation member’s idea now a product sold at Bed Bath & Beyond

At Edison Nation, you’ll often hear us tell our community members that inventing is a journey, not a marathon. If at first you (or an idea) does not succeed, try, try again. Thomas Edison famously stated: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that didn’t work.” Edison Nation member, Danny Blacker is our inventing fairy tale.

His first ever submission to EdisonNation.com turned into a licensing deal with Bed Bath & Beyond.

Today, we’re excited to share that the idea, which became a licensing deal… has now become an actual product sold at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Danny is a skilled engineering and design technician.

When he’s not helping and teaching his students the art of mechanical engineering, you’ll often find him in our forums fielding questions from other members about prototyping, 3D printing and more.

Danny’s Shower Lily invention idea was first licensed to Bed Bath & Beyond in January 2015.

His invention took a year and some changes to come to market, and is now testing in select Bed Bath & Beyond stores. What does Danny think about all of this?

It’s a very empowering experience to watch the process of your idea become a product on a shelf.  It’s a reminder that people don’t always have to see what you see in an idea. What’s important is that you see it, and you see it through. It wouldn’t be where it is without all the hard work that Edison Nation put into this project. If there ever was a sign that I’m the right path in life…this is it!  WHOA YEA!!!”

    Hi there! The Shower Lily is an ergonomic comfort handle that allows the user to attach a loofah sponge. Add soap and water, and the user is able to easily wash their back with the Shower Lily.
