Cord Cruncher: a must have

 

Sometimes throughout history, there have been significant inventions or discoveries that have changed the course of history such as the bow and arrow, the wheel, and beer. Sometimes they are so simple you hit yourself on the forehead and say, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Well, I'm here to tell you that I discovered an invention that is so obvious, so simple, and yet so earth shaking that I had to say to myself, "Why didn't I think of that?"

It's the Cord Cruncher. I'm sure we've all been beyond frustration trying to untangle ear bud cords. No matter how carefully we may store them, they inevitably get all balled up in an inextricable mess. I've thrown away more than one spider web of interlocked cords.

Here comes Cord Cruncher to the rescue. TaDA! Enter the ultimate cord tamer.

Cord Cruncher is just over 18" in length. On one end, you have the standard 3.5 mm audio jack. On the other end are two comfy, padded ear plugs. In the middle is a length of rubber tubing. Mine is blue, but it comes in a choice of three patriotic colors: red, white, and blue.

To extend the wires to their full length, just grab on the ear plugs and gently pull them out of the tubing for your listening pleasure.

When you are done listening and want to store the wires for future use without tangling, you just hold both ends of the tubing and pull until the wires are totally encased. That's all there is to it. The wires are neatly stored and cannot possible get tangled. I compact it even more by weaving the cord in a little circle and stuffing it in my pocket.

Now if this isn't a must have, I don't know what is. It could mean the end of your frustrations and a calm, peaceful life full of positive energy that you can shower on the world and your loved ones. Surely Cord Cruncher will make the world a happier place. It may well go down in history as the cornerstone of the subsequent development of civilization.  

I'm sure you've already decided this is something you can't live without. However, there is a catch, and it's a unique one. Kickstarter, the developers of Cord Cruncher needs startup money to put this product into production. The goal is $20,000. They have $18,737, and there are only six days to go.

To become a backer, please visit the Kickstarter website at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1587181400/cordcruncher-earbud-headphones. Watch the demo video there.

With your donation, you can confidently feel that you have contributed to the advancement of civilization and the peaceful perpetuation of mankind. Everyone at the United Nations should have a Cord Cruncher.
