Celebrating Global Entrepreneurs Week, Benchfly's Alan Marnett has called in "three budding young companies" to pitch some products that might be useful in the lab. There's "PhDefense," which provides full military support for you as you stand in front of the committee to defend your thesis, "should things take a turn for the worse." Then there's "LabLitter," which eliminates the need for bathroom breaks that might take you away from your work. ("You call it LabLitter. We call it Freedom.") And finally, there's the "PI Detector." Hook it up to your PI and never again wonder what he or she is really thinking. "The truth may hurt, but not as badly as going through the motions on a project that you both know isn't working," Marnett says. So far, 89 percent of survey respondents would love to see a PI Detector on the market.
