Crazy Inventions- Chester

The hat could be used as a bowl to put stuff in. The suction could be stuck to the wall so it can be used as a shelf. 
To me, Innovation is making a new item out of an invention to improve it.

The innovation

People can use their phones to check things while washing their hands.



 Innovation to me means making changes to something established, improving it.

Innovation is the art of improving anything. enough said. but on the other hand here are some examples of stuff that are innovative and useless at the same time.

my crazy invention, Taufiq

well it may not look like anything special but this is a scratch and sniff pants that give out a raspberry scent. So i thought of tying it into a ball and making into a chew toy for your pets so that whenever they play with it the scent will naturally come out, except for those with animals without claws as pets. Taufiq.

Crazy inventions

The rubber thing can be used as a coaster for cold beverages.

Crazy inventions

Other than being used as candle holders, these can also be used when cutting or eating the cake.

The definition of Innovation

The process of translating an idea or invention into a good or service that creates value or for which customers will pay.
To be called an innovation, an idea must be replicable at an economical cost and must satisfy a specific need. Innovation involves deliberate application of information, imagination and initiative in deriving greater or different values from resources, and includes all processes by which new ideas are generated and converted into usefulproducts. In business, innovation often results when ideas are applied by the company in order to further satisfy the needs and expectations of the customers. In a social context, innovation helps create new methods for alliance creation, joint venturing, flexible work hours, and creation of buyerspurchasing powerInnovations are divided into two broad categories: 
(1) Evolutionary innovations (continuous or dynamic evolutionary innovation) that are brought about by many incremental advances in technology or processes and 
(2) revolutionary innovations (also called discontinuous innovations) which are often disruptive and new.
Innovation is synonymous with risk-taking and organizations that create revolutionary products or technologies take on the greatest risk because they create new markets.
Imitators take less risk because they will start with an innovator's product and take a more effective approach. Examples are IBM with its PC against Apple Computer, Compaq with its cheaper PC's against IBM, and Dell with its still-cheaper clones against Compaq.
Here is the video about innovation 
p.s. I wonder if we will be able to come up with new innovations...

Innovation generally refers to renewing, changing or creating more effective processes, products or ways of doing things.

First, you must have an IDEA, then you CREATE the product for the community to VALIDATE. 

An INNOVATION has to have a win-win consequence, and have to be able to survive the market and the community must approve of it. 

The video above shows an innovation of a computer which can behave the same way as humans do. Just watch the video.

Crazy innovations


You’re on the train and feel like dozing off? Tried to lean your head onto the window but your head hurts instead? Well, with the help of swimming goggles, it you will not feel the pain anymore. (explanation in picture form)

The only bad thing about ice-cream is that it melts. Not only that, the melted cream will drip all over you and makes you hands sticky and stains your shirt. That’s what this innovation do! The melted cream will only stay on top of the platform. No more sticky hands!

The DIY nut butter maker. The peanut that you buy at the stores, oil, sugar and other ingredients are added into the butter. If you are looking for a healthier way to enjoy peanut butter, you can do it with this maker. It grinds the nut to make it into the butter-ry texture you want. You can also add your own ingredients into your DIY peanut butter!

This might be dangerous, but it’s good for long trips, especially when driving on the highway right before lunch. Being hungry the whole trip is not pleasant, but with this, no more hungry driving. They never said 'Don’t EAT and drive'!


Innovation is combining old ideas to form new ones.


What is innovation?

Innovation is introducing something new and better but not entirely different from an invention.


To me, innovation is about having a NEW and good idea and producing it in reality. So this video is about where do good ideas come from.

Different people have different meanings of innovation.


This is a crazy invention. When you are doing your big business in the toilet and you are feeling bored, you can play with this "mini golf course"

An alternative use for it: Teaching a baby how to play golf. XD

Crazy Invention

How this crazy invention can be used differently:

Probably a special place for a wallet sewn on the jeans can be invented. Therefore, it is not that easy to steal the wallet if any thief wants to do so.

Creativity, Innovation and Invention

What is the relationship between creation, innovation and invention?

  • Creativity is making something new and different than what you ever did before.
  • Invention is making something new, useful, not obvious and different than what already exists. Invention does not have to be better, it just has to be different! (And, we need need creativity for that)
  • Innovation is making something not only new and different, but also better than what already exists.

I&E Video

Futuristic Transportation

Crazy inventions

This invention would strain your eyes and your legs. It would require superior accuracy and balancing skills. Not to mention the occasional trip and spill. We can improve it by by just installing a slot that enables a static wiper sheet to be attached easily to each slipper.
