Bring on the next big thing   by Zack

A.J. Khubani turns that old saw about the world beating a path to your door if you invent a better mousetrap upside down.

Inventors beat a path to his door. One day last week they arrived in waves: inventors of new takes on dog leashes, floor mats, home exercise devices, skin creams, pillows, umbrellas, coffee mugs, kitty litter strainers, eyelash curlers.

Early Wednesday morning, 44 inventors crammed into a conference room and lined up in the hallway on an upper floor of the Los Angeles Airport Marriott. In this case, the term inventor doesnt give the whole picture -- think purveyors of would-be TV infomercial products to complete the description.

Their hope was to receive the Nod That Leads To Wealth from Khubani, the founder and chief executive of Telebrands, one of the largest infomercial marketers in the country. Khubanis quest for the next big thing to be hawked by supercaffeinated pitchmen on TV was the rationale for Inventors Day, the event he sponsored at the Marriott.

Far from home

Telebrands has been holding these events every couple of months since May, but this was the first one it scheduled outside its headquarters in Fairfield, N.J.

The format was, unsurprisingly, extremely televisual: Behind a long table sat a panel of four judges -- Khubani and his wife, Poonam; Nancy Lazkani, the owner of a Van Nuys direct marketing firm; and Tommy Zarzecki, Telebrands official blogger.

Looking on was a film crew shooting a demo for a possible reality show, a feature reporter for NBCs Today show, and a few others from the local press, like me.

The inventors each got five minutes to demonstrate their ideas, preferably with a working prototype, and field a few gentle questions from the judges -- how they got their idea, whether theyve been selling the product at trade shows or online, etc.

Khubani managed to hear out dozens of contestants with remarkable equanimity, never displaying boredom or impatience no matter how bizarre or comic the pitch. The very first pitch of Inventors Day came from a man from Georgia selling a do-it-yourself face lift, a cream he said hed been marketing to women for over three years -- with no side effects!

This is just like American Idol, gushed Andrea Pass, and the companys publicist. Well, maybe with a bit of Lets Make a Deal thrown in. Some inventors came in costume, including two women from Schaumburg, Ill., who dressed in matching pink jackets to promote a gizmo to foil purse snatchers by chaining your handbags to the chair youve hung it on.

An in-air cocoon

Then there was Chad Hassell of Salt Lake City, who wandered the hallway draped in his Cozy Traveler, a body-length blanket hooked to a plump neck pillow to provide head-and-body comfort on cramped and chilly airplanes.

The get-up made Hassell look a bit like Ming the Merciless aproned up for a spot of backyard barbecuing, but thats not to say the product might not work as advertised.

The people waiting their turn in the dock represented a fairly wide range of American Inventordom. Most had been pre-screened by Telebrands and invited to come to the event -- at their own expense, naturally. But several were walk-ons arriving unexpectedly, evidently inspired by an interview Khubani gave a local radio station earlier in the week.

At one end of the spectrum were those with a germ of an idea looking for someone to make it real. For example, Karen Wilson, 55, of Coral Springs, Fla., who dubs her product The Pillow You has Always Dreamed Of. This, she told me, is an inflatable, ergonomically shaped pillow with a built-in pocket to hold a hot/cold gel pack.

Its better than all the other pillows out there, she assured me. The problem was that it has to be airtight, and she hasnt been able to get the pieces glued just right. Ive got it all figured out, but I need to get it manufactured, she said.

At the other end was Scott Heim, 49, a former marketing executive at Kimberly-Clark and DowBrands (where he managed the Ziploc brand), who runs Oregon Freeze Dry Inc. His companys product is a disposable cloth that dry-cleans your garments when its tossed in your home dryer with them.

The firms Dry Cleaners Secret has been on supermarket and drugstore shelves for years, but Heim told me hes been body-checked away from mega-retailers Wal-Mart and Target by the machinations of big consumer-goods companies, which ferociously protect shelf allocations.

His hope was that Telebrands, which gets 90% of its sales from retail chains like those, would take Dry Cleaners Secret under its capacious wing. Wal-Mart and Target could double our product overnight, he said. (Khubani asked Heim to provide him later with some verified sales information.)

Then there were the in-betweeners. Intriguing products like the Alpha Pac, a shoulder harness to which you can clip up to four leashes, allowing you to walk your dogs while carrying grocery bags or wheeling a stroller, without being pulled off your feet when the hounds charge off after the nearest squirrel.

Head-scratchers also turned up, like the Pull4Green travel mug, which is supposed to supplant environmentally incorrect disposable coffee cups but uses disposable cardboard liners that resemble, well, disposable coffee cups. If that reminds you of the counterfeiter who made fake 20-dollar bills by snipping the $20 off real twenties and gluing the bits to the corners of one-dollar bills, maybe you can figure out why Khubani didnt give it a thumbs up.

Khubani says he expects one or two items shown at the average Inventors Day to move up to the test stage; only one in 10 that Telebrands tests, he says, is successful in the marketplace.

First lady Michelle Obama's official trip to southern Africa this week will focus on youth leadership and education and will include meetings with key figures in the anti-apartheid struggle.

Obama will make stops in South Africa and Botswana during the weeklong visit that starts Monday.

She will highlight the benefits of education and wellness and urge youth in the continent to be part of the national dialogue, according to the White House.

"The trip is a continuation of Mrs. Obama's work to engage young people, especially girls and young women, at home and abroad," the White House said.

The first lady's first stop will be in Pretoria, where she will meet with South African President Jacob Zuma.

Before heading to Johannesburg and Cape Town, she will take a tour of an apartheid museum with Nelson Mandela's wife, Graca Machel.

She will also visit Robben Island, where Mandela was held for the majority of the 27 years he was in detention for fighting apartheid.

The schedule released by the White House did not mention a meeting with the 92-year-old former president.

The latter part of the trip includes a meeting with Nobel laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu and a visit to Soweto and the site of the 2010 World Cup.

Her visit to neighboring Botswana will include a tribute to girls overcoming hurdles to success.

In addition to visits with top leaders, she will also attend a series of public events, meet embassy officials and take part in community service projects in both countries.

After a safari, she will depart from the Botswana capital of Gaborone on Sunday.

Her visit marks the second to sub-Saharan Africa by a member of the Obama family since the president took office more than two years ago.

President Barack Obama went to Ghana in 2009. The first lady made similar trips to Brazil, Chile, El Salvador, India, Mexico and the United Kingdom. She will be accompanied by her mother, Marian Robinson, and two daughters, Sasha and Malia.
