O2ool, Branch Out Cider and Shark Tank
Ahhhh, when I was much younger and writing my "Wheels in Motion" blog about all things mobility, I'd often post something fun on Fridays.
You know, something about a wheelchair that could be controlled with your eyes.
But Managing Editor Theresa sent me a link to this story this week about a brother-and-sister team who have developed O2ool (pronounced: otool), a device that holds a nasal cannula oxygen tube in the mouth or on the nose for delivery of oxygen.
They're part of a "Shark Tank" like contest hosted by the University of Northern Colorado to win $36,000 in seed money to build a business around their product.
One of their competitors: A man who uses an old-fashioned cider press to process apples collected from neighbors' apple trees and produce Branch Out Cider.
There are three other finalists, too, but my bet's on O2ool.
Here's why: Lincare has already picked it up.
