    The Giz Wiz Show 1630 for July 7th 2017, Our 113th Independent Production. 

    We're into our third year of Independent Production thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters! If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv/ You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help.

    And now a look at new gadgets from the Inspired Home Housewares For The Holidays Event, New York City, June 15th, 2017. But you don't have to wait until the holidays; so are available now, and more will be available this summer. (Please forgive the noisy audio in the first video and the slightly disorted audio in the 3rd video. We have problems with so many companies running noisy appliances.)


    Cut Your Food, Not Your Fingers.


    Middle schooler R. J. Batts started brainstorming about how his dad, a restaurant chef, could protect his fingers at work because his dad cut his fingers quite often. With the support of his parents he set out to invent a product that would shield his Dad’s fingers. While working on sketches and 3D prototypes, Batts hit upon a simple yet effective way to shield each finger thoroughly up to above the second knuckle – the areas most exposed when using kitchen knives. He continued to improve the product, first by adding prongs to hold food securely in place. Then, to make the product sanitary for professional kitchen environments, he decided to forge the “Professional” version from sturdy stainless steel, adding a series of holes to provide access for thorough cleaning. The Tip Tough was born. It's available now, while R.J. works on a home version and a child's version that might sell for about $10.00.
