Making blowing birthday candles out safe: BlowOut Pal

Techstination feature for Thursday, June 4, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Brian Donnelly is a retired teacher and tinkerer.   Now keep in mind he has been working on his invention since long before the days of Covid-19.   And the invention is called Blow Out Pal.   A cake cover that holds candles….so the person blowing them out…in the midst of a Happy Birthday chorus….doesn’t contaminate the cake with an assortment of germs of saliva.  How did the idea germinate..

“About eight or nine years ago I was driving down Main Street in my home town and like a bolt from the blue this idea just came into my head.   And what inspired it, I don’t know.”

But here he is on Indiegogo raising funds to begin production of BlowOut Pal.   Make sure you check out the hilarious online video.   You can get in early for twenty dollars.
