Dominic Wilcox is a British designer and inventor. For his project titled “INVENTORS!” he asked over 450 children in Sunderland and South Tynside, England, to come up with ideas for inventions. Around 600 drawings were submitted and Wilcox chose roughly 60 of them to give to local manufacturers to produce.
The manufacturers were given a month to turn the kids’ ideas into reality. The INVENTORS! website explains:
“Instead of just putting the drawings on the fridge door as most adults do with a child’s drawings, why not push the ideas as far as they can go? Taking the power of children’s imaginations seriously and see where it leads to.”
