Kids’ Crazy Inventions Turned Into Real-Life Objects

English artist, designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox (featured previously) is at it again with a series of bizarrely creative inventions, only this time he enlisted kids for help. He set up an Inventors Project shop in Sunderland and South Tyneside, then asked over 450 children to draw their ideas for inventions. Wilcox then enlisted local makers and manufacturers to bring those objects to life.

As you can see from the sketches below, these young minds are full of innovative and sometimes funny ideas. Some ideas are practical, like a hook to get out those last Pringles. Others ideas would make the world a happier place, like a war avoiding dome for your house. The wall-mounted paint splatter baby holder? Well, that’s just hilarious.

The final exhibition featured all the sketches on its outside walls. Displayed in the middle were the projects that had been brought to life.

What a great reminder to think outside the box and never forget your own inventive creativity.
