My name is Matt Benedetto and I am the founder of Unnecessary Inventions - where I create fake products that solve problems that don't exist. Croc Gloves, Cuisine Curtain, Avocado on a Stick, and on and on. AMA
Hello Reddit! My name is Matt Benedetto and I am the creator of Unnecessary Inventions! For the past 8 months I have been designing and creating products that solve problems that don't actually exist - such as the Infinity Suacelet, the Cuisine Curtain, AirSticks, FlopFlips, and probably most notably my Cease and Desist from Crocs.
I thought I'd take this Friday afternoon to answer all of your burning questions you might have for me about my design process, how I actually make the inventions, where my inspiration comes from, my personal background, and anything else in between. AMA! If you don't have a question - feel free to submit an idea for an Unnecessary Invention you want to see me try and make!
I just launched my first book, 101 Unnecessary Inventions, that features all my inventions I've created to date! You can click here to order yourself a signed copy!
Now hit me with your best questions!
EDIT: Almost 5 hours in! I need to run out for a few bit but I'll check back in soon!
