Rethinking the Humble Shovel

You’d think that centuries-old tools would be perfected by now. However, there are inventors and designers who are able to improve or make radical changes to familiar implements. Stephen Walden, a 24-year old entrepreneur, has re-imagined the shovel.

Stephen’s innovation is an ergonomically redesigned shovel – projected to really change the way we think about traditional hardware tools.  He took a shovel and other similar tools and added a 360-degree rotational center handle and the idea is to reduce injury in the fields of construction, farming, gardening, landscaping, or home & garden work.

Stephen has launched a Kickstarter campaign to promote the idea and has already raised over $45,000. His idea was recently featured in Fast Company, the Wall Street Journal, and CBS KCAL 9.
