Children can come up with some very weird-awesome ideas. Those ideas do make amazing toys, but inventions are a totally different game. British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox started the Inventors! project to convert ideas of children into real products.
Of course, it wouldn’t be possible to actually make every product, so Dominic created designs and renders for products that would be difficult to invent. For example, the flying skipping ropes are a great idea, but producing them is probably off the table with the technology at our disposal. For their part, the renderings do a pretty good job at bringing these ideas to life.
The Inventors Project saw participation from 450 children and some adults. Overall, the children across Sunderland and South Tyneside, UK sent about 600 ideas for inventions. The artist then asked local makers and manufacturers to work with him and create real products out of a selection of designs. Keep scrolling to see some of these inventions.
