Illumibowl kickstarter, the idea you should have thought of…

Sometimes you see an idea and you immediately think “I should have thought of that!”. Well that happened to me when I saw a recent Kickstarter campaign for “Illumibowl” the glow-in-the-dark toilet seat. Actually, it’s an LED motion activated light for your toilet, but still, very cool.

At time of post, the campaign has reached $6,272 with a goal of $20,000. I have not threw my money in the pot just yet, but I may have to soon. Here is what the creators had to say about their invention.

Worlds Coolest Motion Activated Night Light. No more peeing in the dark, blinding midnight lights, or falling in the toilet again!

We’ve finished the prototypes and perfected the design. Moving foreword to the next stage of manufacturing requires expensive tooling and capitol to produce this at a discounted rate. With your help we can make this a reality and light up the lives of millions.

IllumiBowl’s color changing night light will make your toilet bowl glow every time you walk into your bathroom.

Simply stick it on the outside of your toilet and forget about it. It will turn itself on when you walk in and off when you leave. It’s simple, small, and clean. Modern design and state of the art manufacturing means your IllumiBowl will light up your bathroom for years and years.

We’ve already finished perfecting the design and prototypes and have selected the manufacturer. However, every project carries with it certain risks. The most common risks are potential delays in tooling, obtaining raw materials, packaging, and shipping. While we feel like we have reduced these variables as much as possible, they can never be completely eliminated. That being said, we are not afraid to work long and hard in order to overcome any obstacles that may come our way.

Of course, the designs are still rough, but getting this product right is definitely possible. Even if these guys do not make it to their $20,000 goal, you lose $45 but gain three awesome, color-changing toilet bowl lights. Who doesn’t need a disco in their bathroom?
