Inventor introduces new product at NIU’s Eigerlab Center

LOVES PARK (WREX)- An inventor from the Chicago Suburbs unveiled a new product at Northern Illinois University’s Eigerlab Center Wednesday.

Santosh Arcot introduced the HopperStand, which is described as the “Swiss Army Knife” of utility tables.

It comes with detachable parts and accessories, it also serves as a universal bag holder.

The HopperStand was developed with help from the Eigerlab’s Center for Product Development.

“There are many utility tables out there,” Said Arcot, the President of HopperTopper Inc. “If you go to any of the dot coms, [there are] about a hundred of them. Likewise, there are many bag holders, maybe twenty of them. But, there is just one HopperStand.”
