Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
You can do a lot with Bubble Wrap.
A Tennessee teenager has used it to fashion an inexpensive cosmetic covering for artificial limbs.
Grayson Rosenberger said his inspiration was his mom, a double amputee who has a ministry that provides artificial limbs to Third World countries.
The 15-year-old Nashville youngster said he used a heat gun to mold Bubble Wrap around a prosthetic limb, providing muscle-like tone and shape to the steel rod attached to a foot. He said it rivals other coverings that cost more than $1,000.
Rosenberger’s invention was his entry in the first-ever Bubble Wrap Competition for Young Inventors, conducted by Bubble Wrap creator Sealed Air Corporation. He won the grand prize: a $10,000 savings bond.
