Quirky doesn’t have much to do with China but I think it’s such an interesting and brilliant online business model that I had to write about it.

Have you come up with a brilliant idea to solve a real life problem that you feel others experience too? You start to think, “I wish there was a device to do _____!” But then you think, “I have no idea how to make it…” then that idea fades into the air, leaving you wondering “what if?”
