The Quirky dream is over -- or at least, it's fundamentally changing. The company just announced that it'll no longer be building products of its own, instead it'll focus on channeling ideas to corporate partners like GE and Mattel. Quirky launched as a way for anyone to pitch their unique invention ideas, which would then be voted on by the community and, if deemed worthy, eventually produced by Quirky. On top of the internet fame from getting your dream idea built, you'd also get a cut of the profits. But now, Quirky is changing things up, following a slew of unusual products (remember that smart egg tray?) that were often buggy, and which few people wanted to buy. The news comes as the company is preparing to announce a new round of funding, as well as additional funding for its connected home spinoff Wink.
