10,000 Ways That Won't Work




Prototype-making workshop

For one day at the Paper Cut exhibition at The Proud Archivist, I challenged all budding inventors to create a prototype for an invention that doesn’t yet exist. What machine or device would improve the world, enhance your life, solve a problem or grant a wish?

A host of incredible prototypes were created including a Lost Toy Finder, an Aremac (reverse camera that turns photos into reality), two Money Making Machines, a mechanical Carrot Cut Machine and Happiness Button, the Time Stop device, a Tickling Machine (for burglars), the i-Fire-U splurge gun that seeks out its victims, The Cloud (time machine), a Mixella (device that combines two things into one) and a Party Robot (see above).

See more here.

Thanks to Nick White for all his amazing help and prototype technical know-how!

10,000 ways that won’t work




Prototype-making workshop with Chrissie Macdonald.

A prototype is a first or preliminary version of a device, machine or product from which other forms are developed.

Thomas Edison, co-inventor of the first commercially viable light bulb, is said to have developed thousands of prototypes in the process: ‘I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.’

Sam Born made history in 1916 with his machine that mechanically inserts sticks into lollipops, George de Mestral made it possible for me to put on my own trainers as a child when he invented Velcro in 1948, and my five-year-old nephew has big plans for the cuddling machine that will never let you go.

I challenge all budding inventors to create a paper prototype for an invention that doesn’t yet exist. What machine or device would improve the world, enhance your life, solve a problem or grant a wish?

Come along to Paper Cut: The Exhibition at The Proud Archivist this Sunday 14th Sept between 10am-4pm to accept my challenge, pick up some paper and see where it takes you!
Sign up for the workshop here.
