KnifeGliderPamphletMainNEW YORK—Inventor Jennifer Shipp will showcase her Knife Glider, a shield that protects fingers while cutting, on Good Morning America next week.

The Dec. 28 segment is being filmed in conjunction with the Christmas Day movie release of “Joy,” a film inspired by Joy Mangano, the inventor of the Miracle Mop, Huggable Hangers and other products.

“We have been working on this project for the past five years and have brought the Knife Glider to market with help and support of our community,” said Shipp, who founded Brilliant Inventors, which is based in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, with her husband, Samuel Shipp.
