#TeamWizzbang

Hatch Innovations, a team led by three fathers of young sons, wanted to teach boys to have better aim when using the toilet. Turning to video games for inspiration they invented the Wizzbang. A laser target appears when the seat goes up, accompanied by video game sound effects, encouraging boys to focus on a particular, less mess-inducing, area.

#TeamSaladBuddie

Austin Design Quad hates salads drowned in dressing. Worst of all, the meal ends with sloppy lettuce that slips around the bowl. 

To counter these problems, the team came up with Salad Buddie, an in-bowl strainer that can collect several tablespoons of dressing. Additionally, a nubby surface allows the fork to pierce the last leaves of lettuce with ease.
