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:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

What do you get when you combine bubble wrap and orange trees? You get young Eric Baker’s invention, the “Orange DeBruiser.” One of 15 semi-finalists in the fourth annual Bubble Wrap Competition for Young Inventors, Eric is hoping that his invention will bring home the $10,000 prize reports the OrlandoSentinel.com.

Eric likes to create things out of Lego blocks and recently spent a week working on a model of a space station for a class science project. He also tries come up with inventions – from string to motion sensors – that will detect when his two little brothers have been snooping in his bedroom.

But he turned his attention to Bubble Wrap after his science teacher asked every kid to come up with a Bubble Wrap invention. While doing his chores, Eric began pondering how Bubble Wrap could help him.

You see, each weekend, Eric has to climb a ladder and pick oranges off the trees. But invariably, during the week, some oranges fall off the trees, hit the ground and split open or get bruised.

And that is the story behind Eric’s Orange DeBruiser. When an orange falls, it lands on the layers of bubble wrap, then rolls down an inclined surfaced into a receptacle.

No more muss, fuss, no possums eating the fallen fruit.
