Will’s Entry: Another $1,000,000 Idea

22 Jul

My work’s been having a fitness challenge.  Part of it has been daily recording the number of steps using a pedometer.  It’s been fun and I’ve been averaging about 11,000 steps per day which is about 4.5 miles.  It’s a hard average to keep so I try to play basketball, golf, or disc golf as much as possible.

Anyways, my idea isn’t about the work challenge.  It’s not about the pedometer.  It’s about the pedometer’s clip!  This thing is pretty tight, tough to put on and not a danger to fall off. 

Now where would a clip be useful?  On the back of a kid’s pants.  I’m guessing that we’re not the only ones with the problem, but sometimes your kid just isn’t big enough to be wearing a pair of pants, shorts or swim trunks but he/she’s gotta wear them for whatever reason.  This happens to us a lot.  We assumed that Jason would be hitting the different clothing sizes at the designated age.  Yeah, we were wrong.  We compensated with Sierra and it turned out that we overestimated our under-estimation.  Anyway, Jason was running around Seven Peaks (the water park) with a safety pin in his swim trunks and I was thinking what a hazard it is (think about it) when I determined a tight clip would be perfect.  You could even have trendy/cute designs on them and everything.  Just fold the back of the pants tight and clip.  I even have a name for my product – “It’s a Cinch”.  Something like this has already been invented probably, but I’ve never seen it.

    Now you just need to build the prototype, so Sierra clothes can stay up. Can you imagine when there’s not diaper there anymore, nothing is going to stay on that little bum of hers!

      Once my pedometer dies, maybe that’s what it’s future will be.

    Seriously great idea…love the name! However, the ‘clip’ was never my boys problem. 😉

    You could make it in China.
