British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox asked over 450 children across Sunderland and South Tyneside, UK, to come up with ideas for inventions.

Then, he chose around 60 invention drawings of 600 submitted and presented them to local makers that could help with manufacturing.

The kids were invited to explain their selected inventions themselves. The makers had only 4 weeks to produce real-life objects, making sure that they created exactly what the kids wanted. The project was called “INVENTORS!”

“The children were the stars and I gained so much enjoyment seeing them getting excited about their and other peoples’s ideas,” Wilcox told Bored Panda.

“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?” states the project’s website.

“Taking the power of children’s imaginations seriously and see where it leads to.”
