They might be little, but kids can have mighty ideas. If you need proof, just ask British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox, who asked more than 450 children across Sunderland and South Tyneside, UK, to come up with ideas for inventions.
After more than 600 were submitted, he chose around 60 invention drawings and presented them to local makers that could help with manufacturing. The project, simply called “INVENTORS!” let the kids explain their ideas, and the makers had only four weeks to produce real-life objects created exactly how the kids wanted.
As you can see from the sketches, these young minds were full of sometimes practical, sometimes funny, but always innovative ideas. After all, who doesn’t want a food-cooling fork?

You're probably almost as familiar with famous TV apartments as you are with your own place, but this Imgur user decided to take a new look at them using a bird's eye view, furniture plans, and even areas done to scale.
I think it's safe to assume that most people own at least one pair of jeans. And while wearing that pair of jeans, you've tried to put something in your pocket only to have it get caught in that tiny stupid little pocket inside the intended pocket.
And while in the midst of cursing the Levi Strauss gods for creating this seemingly useless little piece of denim real estate, you might have wondered, “Why is this thing even here?!?”
While most kids see their fathers as heroes, it's the other way around for Alan Lawrence — a father of seven, blogger, and Photoshop master in Utah — who creates beautiful photos of his youngest son “flying” to show that his Down syndrome doesn’t hold him back from spectacular things.
Before the artist you knew as Prince was the superstar that would change music in immeasurable ways with the release of his first studio album in 1978, he was Prince Rogers Nelson, a shy 19-year-old in Minnesota.
