Firebox Inventor throws open its doors to budding creative types

Have you ever fancied yourself as a bit of an inventor? Got a really good idea for a must-have gadget? If you've ever seen a glaring gap in the gadget

If you've ever seen a glaring gap in the gadget world, and wondered why something hasn't been made before, now's your chance to make it happen.

Firebox has just launched a new competition that could see your ingenious invention made and marketed on the site – and Stuff's very own Tom Dunmore will be one of the judges sizing up your entries.

Beware – bland, seen-it-before products won't cut it here, Firebox is looking for quirky, original products that will feel right at home on the company's website.

If you think you've got what it takes, there are plenty of way to get your idea over to the panel. No scary face-to-face pitches involved – just simply upload a video, send a tweet, or drop them an email, with a description, doodle or whatever you think best gets your idea across.

And while getting your idea made and marketed may well be prize enough – the winner will also bag 50% of all the profits their product makes.

The competition is open now, so get your thinking caps on, and be sure to check back to where we'll be showing some of the best on our blogs.
