Awesome “Inventors!” project by British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox (who we posted about last year). After gathering over 600 ideas from over 450 children across Sunderland and South Tyneside, UK, Wilcox whittled down the entries to 60 and challenged local manufacturers to create exactly what the kids envisioned. See more of the original imaginings paired with the real-life creations below!
“The Reinvention of Normal” is a fantastic little profile of artist, inventor, designer Dominic Wilcox. In the image above you can see a device he invented which allows him to use his right ear to hear what’s on his left, and use his left ear to hear what’s on his right. This is just one of the many brilliantly silly inventions he created as part of a project to make something creative every day for 30 days. Other creations include: toothbrush maracas, an umbrella that waters plants, and a soccer ball that mixes a smoothie.
I like to keep videos like this bookmarked for whenever I’m having a creative block. Everything he says is mind expanding, this is highly recommended viewing! Watch the artist profile below.
