Do you remember coming up with (what seemed like) amazing ideas for inventions when you were a kid?
Perhaps they seemed impossible to others. But to you, in your state of wonder and limitless possibility, the ideas felt completely achievable.
Maybe you figured out the secret to creating a Limitless Wish Granting Machine, drew up plans for a Rainbow Catcher Device, or discovered an ingenious way to feed the world’s starving people.
If you know us here at Kidpreneurs, then you know that we celebrate the creativity and compassion of youth of all ages, from all walks of life, and from all over the world!
We recently caught wind of the incredible Future Founders project, made possible by the UK Domain. For this project, the coordinators asked 10 children to reveal what they would most like to invent to make the world a better place.
From cancer-curing robots to machines that destroy guns, the ideas abounded. An illustrator then brought these inspiring ideas and inventions, by the young budding entrepreneurs and innovators, to life.
Helen Tomes, Director of Marketing at The UK Domain, said the following about the project:
“It’s fascinating to see the creative and often thoughtful way that children see the world. We wanted to give the founders of tomorrow a platform to show us what they think of the world today.”
The piece explores the minds of children, and discovers what they would create to conquer issues affecting the world around them.
Take a look at the innovation and humanity that these outstanding kids exemplified with their inventions and ideas.
Remember, ideas don’t have to be complex to be a success!
