Innovation@Brawny: Sectionable Paper Towels

More often than not I find myself using only half a paper towel at a time. It’s 2014 and its time for some paper towel innovation. It’s time for sectionable paper towels. Each paper towel sheet could be divided into two or four perforated squares. When a whole sheet is not necessary a quarter or half could be used as needed. For those of us who don’t stock our kitchens with napkins, sectionable paper towels would provide the best of both worlds. The only question is what will it be called? Sectionable Paper towels? Napkins on a roll? Paper towel squares?

Innovation@Infinity Jars: Light Proof Vacuum Sealable Glass Hermetic Jars

Light proof vacuum sealable glass hermetic jars. The ultimate food storage innovation that hasn’t been invented yet.

Storing food in hermetically sealed glass jars is the healthiest and one of the most effective ways to store food. Glass jars do not impart any flavors or leech any chemicals into food like many plastic containers do. Hermetic glass jars provide air tight storage that keeps food fresh whether it’s stored in the pantry, refrigerator, or the freezer.

While hermetically sealed glass jars offer the healthiest option for storing food they do not preserve food as long and as fresh as a vacuum seal will. Because vacuum seals expel all air within the given container, food stays fresher and lasts longer than with any other method of storing food. So why not combine the best of both worlds? Why not have the quality of glass with the efficacy of a vacuum seal. The lids could be designed with connectors so you could plug your jar into an easy to use vacuum seal.

Lastly, ultraviolet glass could be used to protect the jars’ contents from damaging light.

Innovation@Fido Bormioli: UV Resistant Hermetically Sealed Glass Jars

Fido Bormioli makes the best hermetically sealed glass jars on the market. Nothing beats these jars when it comes to storing food. Food would likely last longer and stay fresher if the glass was UV light proof. A UV resistant hermetically sealed glass jar would also likely become the standard bearer in marijuana storage. Marijuana cultivation remind you is big business.

Innovation@Kenmore: Lighted Refrigerator Produce Compartments

Would fruit and veggies last longer if they were exposed to light during their time in a refrigerator?

As we know, photosynthesis is vital for all plant life on Earth. We also know that plants can be grown indoors with proper lighting. So isn’t it logical that produce sitting in a dark refrigerator will go bad sooner than produce sitting in a refrigerator being exposed to light?

It would be very easy to create a refrigerator that had lighted produce compartments. LED’s would likely emit the kind of light needed to keep produce fresh and could do so in an energy efficient manner. These compartments could be constructed in a manner that made them lightproof thereby preventing the light from effecting the other contents of the refrigerator.
