Young talents: inventions invented by childrenBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/young-talents-inventions-invented-by-children
British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox asked more than 450 children in the British cities of Sunderland and South Tyneside to think about what inventions they would like to see in the modern world. From the 600 sketches sent, the designer chose 60 inventions and turned to local manufacturers to make children's ideas a reality. Then he invited the children to give them the opportunity to explain for themselves what the function of their creations is. The manufacturers had only 4 weeks to implement the children's ideas so that they could really be used, and most importantly, to get exactly what the children wanted. The project was called "Inventors!".
Agree, it's so great when adults listen to children's ideas and take them seriously, because we never know what can come out of just one child's invention — suddenly it will be an invention that will help the whole world.
A 12-year-old boy, Henry, probably got tired of putting paste on his toothbrush every time. And he came up with a toothbrush that already has paste inside.
11-year-old Laila came up with a lamp with blinds. You pull the cord — and the blinds change the direction of light.
And this is a flower pot that waters itself. The young inventor Kai was very worried that adults do not follow the plants, and they die.
And here is a collector for foliage, which is attached to the trunk of a tree.
A car that always "high-fives". Its inventor, 6-year-old Oliver, came up with a car, of course, for children. But who knows, maybe adults will want to have a similar "hand" at home.
6-year-old Amelia lacked a fork cooling the food.
11-year-old Georgia came up with a device for a large company — a hook that can easily get Pringles chips. After all, not everyone's hand gets through for a new portion.
But Colin thought that there was not enough space in ordinary telephone booths for people in a wheelchair. Then he developed a "Friend Phone" that slides out on a lever as soon as the sensor on the floor reacts to the pressure from the wheelchair.
11-year-old Alex came up with glasses on the contrary. You put them on and see everything that happens from behind.
9-year-old Wendy would like to have a scooter for the whole family.
And this gadget was obviously invented by a big fan of French fries. A real machine for fast cooking fries — it will cut and fry potatoes.
11-year-old Sally sent a sketch of "Silent Slippers". Sally says that the slippers will suit those people whose floors are "very squeaky." And it seems to us that these slippers will help not to wake up the whole house for lovers of making night raids on the refrigerator.
11-year-old Morgan decided that it would be great if a small child would sleep in such a device on the wall. Who knows, maybe the child will really like it.
11-year-old Charlotte would like to have an elevator in our world where you can escape from the war.
4-year-old Daniel came up with a camera that you need to shout at to make it work.
