Invention ideas for kids it's not something that we usually see in our grown-up world, but it turns out, that some of the little humans have even greater imaginations than us, adults. British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox asked over 450 children across Sunderland and South Tyneside, UK, to come up with ideas for crazy inventions. Then, he chose around 60 ideas of 600 submitted drawings 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 four 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 pleasure seeing them getting excited about their and other peoples' 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."

These genius kids have come up with ideas solving not only everyday problems but also more serious issues, such as wars and helping people with disabilities. Scroll down to see the amazing inventions for kids from kids themselves.

We used to make these with an old box from foil or plastic wrap and two small mirrors. just cut a hole at the top and bottom on the same side and angle the mirrors inside, one at the top and one at the bottom so you can see out above your head. Still cool they thought of the idea from scratch though. :)

But who would want to wear this? It's not very practical. Then again, most kids don't think about practicality

It might be better if it was for only one eye. Then you could quickly shift from forward to reverse view by winking alternate eyes.

I don't think that would work! Weight equals pressure equals creak.
