Bust Cubby Lets Guests Go Purse Free


Kelly Smith of Hixon, Tennessee, knew she had a blockbuster idea the first time she experienced Disney without having to carry a purse. “It was liberating,” declared Smith, the inventor of The Bust Cubby. Retailing for $24.99, the water- resistant, machine-washable soft case snaps inside a tank top or bra. It’s ideal to hold a phone, credit cards, identi- fication, keys, makeup, or any other essential, she said.


The patented Bust Cubby can be upgraded to include an RF/RFID shield insert and comes in 15 designs but can be customizable to include a facility’s logo or desired fabric. Smith will follow up The Bust Cubby in 2014 with a comparable men’s product, which goes inside the pants.

CenterEdge Software Debuts Streamlined Digital Waiver Solution CenterEdge Software, which special- izes in software for the entertainment industry, showcased its new digital liability waiver product. Originally created for trampoline parks, Advan- tage Waivers is now available for other types of attractions, like laser tag centers. The software allows guests to fill out liability waivers ahead of time online, at a kiosk on site, or via a mobile device. The paper-free system tracks and manages the paperwork, letting operators know when waivers have expired or automatically stop- ping a purchase if a customer has not completed and signed a waiver. “Speed of transaction is so criti- cal,” said Grey Burnett, director of marketing for CenterEdge, who added the software makes the process “much smoother” and eliminates the waste and cost of using paper waivers. www.centeredgesoftware.com

The duo has created designs for cli- ents from Mini Cooper to Dragoncon, and their chalk drawings can be cre- ated indoors and out. Another perk: “Since we’re down on the floor, kids love it,” said Lexi, who added that performances can offer an interactive component with kids getting hands- on with the chalk themselves. The 2D designs can be executed on outdoor asphalt or concrete as well as tem- pered hardboard for indoor venues. www.chalktwins.com
