By Inventors, For Inventors | The Story of Clever Tongs

We at Enhance get to chat with people from all over the world. People who have dreams, ideas, and concepts that they are excited about and eager to get started. Frankly, we love it. We are so keyed into the excitement and high that one gets when they are in pursuit of their next big idea, as it’s a very familiar feeling to us! How do we know what that feels like? We’re inventors ourselves! As such, we like to tailor our approach to product development to highlight the best, most fun, and most meaningful aspects of the process so as to ensure that our inventor clients not only receive professional-quality, meaningful product development and design materials, but also so our clients enjoy this exciting and exhilarating creative process! In our Invention Lab, we are constantly brainstorming, and analyzing new ways that we can solve everyday problems with the hopes of identifying the next big thing, or sometimes even the next little thing that can make life a little bit easier or more enjoyable! A few years ago, I identified a potential new kitchen utensil that may alleviate the need to have both a spatula and a set of tongs in one’s kitchen drawer. I created some sketches on my own, and built a prototype with off-the-shelf parts and tried it out! Lo and behold, it worked like a charm! I presented the idea to our team and they took my idea from being a simple concept, and made it into a beautiful and elegant tool that anyone would be proud to have in their own kitchen. Each step...

Enhance Team Takes A Plunge For Charity

  Yes, some Enhance Product Development employees will be jumping into an ice hole. Maybe a little bigger than the one above. In the middle of winter. In Minnesota. WHEN: Saturday, March 2nd at 11 am WHERE: Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis WHO: Team Purple Parts – at least 6 members of the Enhance Product Development team will be jumping in the frigid water- brrrr!!! WHY??? Our team goal is to raise at least $450 for the Special Olympics. My sister had a brain injury and was paralyzed on the left side of her body. My family volunteered with the Special Olympics, The Brain Injury Association, and The Courage Center quite a bit growing up, so I love that my employer and co-workers are willing to jump into frigid water to support a charity that’s dear to my heart.   Click here to support the Special Olympics and the Enhance team! Pictures of us jumping will definitely be posted after the...

What Office Toys Did Santa Bring Your Office?

Working in a creative field that requires imagination means you may get stuck in a rut sometimes. Our solution in our office is to play with toys! Toys really do help- at least that’s what we tell our boss 😉 According to a CNN article about office toys, there are over 200 types of office toys on Amazon alone. Office toys are a great way to express who you are at work, similar to decorating your locker in school.  Below are some of the gifts that our employees received over the holidays and have brought in to share with our office:  This foam disc gun does wonders when you need to get somebody’s attention who has their headphones on.  This remote control helicopter has made it easier to deliver important messages to coworkers… We’ve also set up challenges to see who the best remote control helicopter pilot is in the office!
