Traveling last year, Maryland realtor Mohammad Musabbir experienced what many travelers go through – he forgot his tooth brush. As the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention. So, Musabbir invented.
“I told myself there is a better way to organize [these travel hygiene needs] and I went to every big store to find something that will make anyone’s travel easy and convenient but I couldn’t find anything,” he told the Muslim Link. What he came up with is a container that looks like a thermos, but holds four liquid dispensers in its main compartment for things like shampoo, lotion, and liquid soap; two tooth brushes in a middle space, and items like floss and nail clippers go in a bottom, screw off compartment.
His invention is called “My Travel Buddy”.
“My Travel Buddy is a perfect kit for a traveler for long trips, camping, cruising, Hajj trip or just even taking it on the road trip. It is a ready to go wherever and whenever you go without any hassle. Having all your toiletries in one place makes it easy to get up and go, and helps prevent loss,” explained Musabbir.
After six months of development, “My Travel Buddy” has a patent pending as well as a final prototype. Musabbir is making sure the product meets Transportation and Security Authority requirements and designed it with see through windows so the liquid levels are visible. The product is elegantly designed with high quality plastic, is light weight, and waterproof.
