Make it Flip'n Easy.
Get any powder you got into any container you want - without getting it all over the place.
Flip'n Easy simplifies a common task for athletes, parents & kids, backpackers, commuters, fitness buffs, Gma & Gpa, and anyone who drinks from a bottle.
I invented Flip'n Easy when I was 12 years old. Then I rode my bike and totally forgot about it.
That is, until I was on my first deployment. Many of us drank protein shakes after exercising to help with recovery. Getting our powder inside the water bottles made a mess nearly every time. I knew others must be dealing with this nonsense and I saw an opportunity to make something better.
I saved enough money for my pilots license, a down payment on a small house, or a patent. After realizing I spill powder way more often than I fly, the patent was filed. I began developing a scoop with a funnel connected by a folding handle. And to my delight, it works and makes a difficult task... Flip'n Easy!
If you only need a little bit, the measuring marks help with that. The funnel overlaps the scoop, so it's easy to get more while using one hand.
You might be thinking, "What can I use it for?".
So glad you asked, here's a few ideas:
- Baby Formula
- Protein Powder
- Sweet Tea
- Energy Powder
- Instant Coffee
- Kids Drink Mixes
- Fiber Drinks
- Pancake Mix
- Spices/Salt/Pepper (shakers)
- Plant Food (spray bottle)
- Household Cleaners (spray bottle)
- Sure, Sand Art.
- *infomercial voice* And so much more!
Basically, it transforms any powder in your cabinet into a portable beverage.
But this invention and I are not done yet.
Funds raised will go towards making one size smaller and one size larger than the volume pictured above. Because pouring stuff in the right place should be Flip'n Easy.
For anyone new to Kickstarter, it's an all or nothing kind of deal. If the goal is not met, your pledge remains with you. If we reach the goal, the campaign will be funded and we will deliver a handy product to everyone that had an impact on it's success.
Let's go back to when my voice would squeak like a chew toy without notice.
I was about to mix up some [tasty drink mix] the old school way (in a cup). My friends showed up and wanted to go hit the jumps with our bikes. I decided to make the drink in a bottle so I could take it with me.
I tried using my hand to guide the powder in, but failed big time. I quickly made a funnel from paper and swiped the mess off the countertop and into my bottle. We weren't worried about germs back then.
Sometime mid-swipe, I had this great idea and was wondering why it didn't exist.
Narrator: Little did he know, he would be the one to make it later.
All U.S. backers have Shipping included as part of the reward. The Early Birds will get rewards sooner but we will make every effort to beat our shipping deadlines for everyone.
Do you know anyone that has a baby, enjoys tasty drinks, or takes healthy supplements?
We would truly appreciate if you shared this idea with everyone that could use it!
Risks and challenges
I will be striving to impress the international backers with prepaid taxes and duties, so they won't have to think about it when the reward gets there. On this side of the pond, it's a rather perplexing thing for a regular guy inventor to figure out. But, I'm going to try super hard!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
