HOW TEEN INVENTOR WENT FROM SKETCH TO PROTOTYPE IN 6 MONTHS

Necessity may indeed be the mother of invention. Sometimes, though, an actual mother is the necessity — for the inventor at least.
Teen inventor Carter Kostler
That’s the case for Carter Kostler, a 14-year-old ninth-grader from Virginia Beach, Va., whose parents invested time, research and personal funds to make his vision a reality.
New product to sketch prototype in 6 months
Six months after dreaming up his concept for a fruit-infused water bottle — a product designed with the goal of improving one’s health and the environment — Kostler’s invention recently received patent-pending status. And with a little help from the Kickstarter community, he’ll soon kick his bottle-making enterprise into full gear with his first production run. The young entrepreneur expects to have 1,000 bottles arriving in stores during the first week.
Idea in carter kostler mind for invention
Kostler got the inspiration for the Define Bottle — his first entrepreneurial venture — from watching his mom Carla Weisman cut up fresh fruit in the mornings to make spa water in a pitcher. When she left the house, though, she couldn’t bring the fruit-infused water with her.
That got him wondering, how can we make spa water portable?
Soon, he came to his parents with sketches, and the family quickly went into action. They researched and found a patent attorney, an industrial design company and a branding firm — all, coincidentally, in California. The family never met any of the consultants in person.
The industrial design firm signed a non-disclosure agreement, and started making renderings, coming up with some 40 concepts, says Weisman. The family narrowed down their choices, and the designers developed a prototype.
We really let him take the lead of his vision on it, says Weisman, who filed the patent application in her name because her son is a minor. Kostler, who is interested in marketing, also worked on branding the bottle.
