Qubits on Shark Tank Show

Qubits 2.0 Geometric Design Toy
I did however, try building a few projects with my kid's new toy :). I liked the idea of having new pieces to stretch my imagination, but because of the geometric designs and the long pencil-like connectors, it reminded me of building a house of card's ready to collapse at any time.
natural building blocks known as Qubit's. Using nature's natural building structures as the design for his invention, Burginger was able to make some really incredible, we'll, pieces of art. These unique creation's are built by nothing more then snap-on piece's of plastic and capable of building thing's you could never imagine with Lego's. Mark's creations was enough to get the producer's attention on the Shark Tank Show. They liked the idea so much, they squeezed in Qubit's during the very first season and the last episode of season 1.
Mark Burginger on the Shark Tank Show
Mark Burginger went into the Shark Tank in what some would call the loneliest time for any inventor. You are completely convinced that you have a great product and million's of people are going to love that you are willing to invest to your limit to make your dream a reality. When Mark sent in his audition tape to the Shark Tank Show back in June of 2009, he had plenty of inventory and just needed that little boost in advertising to make Qubits a major success story.
Daymond John, knowing a good deal when he sees one, makes Burginger an offer, but only if he can make a deal with one of the larger toy companies. Unfortunately, Daymond was not successful in the negotiations, and a deal with Qubit's was unable to materialize. Daymond John, has however, still been working with Mark, and a major deal in the future is not out of the question.
Qubit's Update #2
|Create just about anything imaginable|
with the Qubits 2.0
As with all successful entrepreneur's, Mark Burginger has come up with a very creative way not only to promote the New Qubit's 2, but raise the much-needed capital in bringing this product to market. Mark has a guest post at the Shark Tank Blog where he announced a new Indigogo campaign to kickstart his new invention. You can now pre-order the limited edition Qubit's 2 and guarantee you will be one of the very first to start creating thing's once thought impossible.
After watching some of the Qubit's Video's on YouTube.com and seeing some of the things that Mark has created, it got my mind thinking of other thing's you could build using these exact geometric structures, but on a much larger scale. Useful structure's you could build within a kit. They are extremely light weight and because of the Qubit's designs, it can hold several times its weight. Maybe a picnic table made out of Giant Qubit's for instance? A super light-weight material snapped together and taken apart in just a few minutes. Or maybe a bookcase you can create exactly as you see fit. How about a playhouse completely made out of large Qubit's that can easily be rearranged and keep your kid's busy for hours. Grant it, it may take another very large investment to marry the two markets, but having a Branding Expert on your side like Daymond John, all things are possible. Just thinking out loud here, but it sure seems like it might be a good idea to me..
Until then you can Help Mark Bring Qubit's 2 to the Market by going to his Indigogo page and pre-order your Limited Edition Qubit's 2 Collection.
