Quirky's lab for their crowdsourced designers and engineers to develop, prototype, and test products is a innovative model for a business.

PSFK's Future of Work report has highlighted the state-of-the-art lab that product design incubation company Quirky has created for their crowdsourced designers and engineers to develop, prototype, and test products. Quirky, which we have written about previously here and here,  receives over 100 product ideas per year; submitted from their community of inventors and influencers. Once a product idea has been selected, the original inventor is able to join the Quirky team while they continue to collaborate virtually with the community in order to finetune a physical prototype.
