Six Accessible Inventions by Ben Kaufman, CEO/Founder, Quirky

Part of the Quirky + GE collection, Nimbus is a highly customizable four-dial dashboard that tracks everything important to me—like my commute, traffic, weather, email, calendar, and social media networks. I can personalize each gauge using my mobile device to keep an array of info up-to-date and available at a glance.


Pivot Power Genius

This app-enabled version of our best-selling powerstrip is a must-have gadget for me at home. Like the original, it bends to fit every sized plug or adapter without wasting a single outlet. This one puts the power at my fingertips, allowing me to independently control two outlets from my mobile device. I love being in control of my power from anywhere, anytime.


I am on the road a lot, so Spotter is my new best friend. It keeps me updated on what’s going on at home, monitoring motion, sound, light, temperature, and humidity all from my mobile device. I use Spotter as a veritable extension of my senses, for anything from washer/dryer notifications to perfecting my wine cellar; the possibilities are endless.



I am a jeans and black tee guy and all I need is my phone. Crossover is an iPhone 5 case that is designed to protect your phone and double as a wallet. Two stretchy silicone bands cover the back of your phone, corner to corner, and hold money or credit cards under the bands. It’s all you need on the go.


Power Curl Mini

Power Curl Mini keeps the power cords from getting jumbled in my bag. I simply slide my adapter into the center and wrap my USB cord around it. Flip down the silicone cover to keep those cords firmly in place, and I’m good to go.


Contort Power

The Contort Power is a perfect device for my life because I need to power my computer and phone when I’m in transit. It provides both USB and AC power housed in a beautiful and functional design. Two USB ports and an AC outlet offer versatile charging, while the angled plug and built-in cord management make it one of the most travel-worthy devices in my bag.
