Innovators Hardware Store Sells Tools For Inspiration

Innovators Hardware Store Sells Tools For Inspiration

The Inventables online shop functions as a hub to help facilitate the possible by providing designers, inventors and artists with access to innovative materials.

Stephen Fortune

When we first heard of the Inventables online shop, we were sure we had stumbled across another 826 National Store given the exotic wares which they flog. A sample of some of their products include:

Mineral Wood (resistant to temperatures of 1,832 °F), Suction Cup Tape (this tape bonds to smooth, flat, clean surfaces just like a suction cup), Electricity Conducting Fabric, Translucent Concerete and Rubber Glass!

However, all these products are real, as the Inventables Store functions as a hub to help facilitate the possible by providing designers, inventors and artists with access to innovative materials. Merely glancing at their catalogue is enough to fire your imagination, but providing a resource for these materials is a surefire way to better enable creatives to push boundaries and develop new products.
