Invention of the Week:  The Doodle Daley




Inventor Susan Drexler decided that she needed a better way to clean up dog messes in the yard….


Are you tired of stepping in your dog’s “Doodle” or cleaning it up each day with a plastic bag that makes your regular trash can smell?  Inventor Susan Drexler was, so she decided to do something about it.  She invented the Doodle Daley which is a fire hydrant-shaped pet waste receptacle. It features a side-hinged lid for easy flip-top accessibility to the inner bag-lined holding area, and a handled scoop that can simply unsnap for use.  The back of the unit features an attached stabilizing fork that lifts to act as a handle and lowers into the ground to keep the unit firmly in place. The unit also features wheels so that moving it around the yard is simple!  Susan has filed for a Utility Patent on her invention.

Invention of the Week:  Expandable Power Strip / Expandable Wall Plug
Do those bulky transformer plugs drive you **crazy**?  Well, Mr. Yekusiel Teitelbaum has ‘transformed’ standard outlets to accommodate for the clunky chargers…
Most households contain multiple charging devices for cell phones, handheld gaming systems, cameras, MP3 players, etc.  The large plugs are bulky and sometimes prevent adjacent plugs from being used at the same time.  Expandable Power Strip enables the user to expand the space between plugs, allowing oversized plugs to be easily plugged into the power strip. Eliminating the hassle of unplugging some items in order to make room for the large plug, Expandable Power Strip is a convenient product for use in areas where many electronics or appliances need to be plugged in, such as home offices, bedrooms or living rooms.  A wall-plug version is also covered by Mr. Teitelbaum’s patent.

Invention of the Week:  Doggie Fountain

For help with an idea, request info. http://www.inventionhome.com/info/index.asp?referred=wordpress.


This week’s featured invention is truly “for the dogs”…
The innovative “Doggie Fountain” was invented by Tony Lytle.  Tony has a Utility Patent on file for his unique invention, which operates similar to a drinking fountain but is modified to provide clean, fresh water for friends of the four-legged variety.
Doggie Fountain hooks up easily to an outdoor hose, and features a paddle that is depressed by the dog’s paw in order to activate the water flow. With minimal training, the pet can easily learn how to use the device.  Sure beats the dirty (and often empty) water bowls of yester-year!  Tony has produced samples both in stainless steel and in plastic, and has sold in limited quantities.
