But there is no age to creativity.
Here is a list of inventions created before these kids even received their college diplomas.
1. Back in college in 1934, George Nissen from the University of Iowa, invented a bouncing apparatus to help train the school’s gymnastics team, of which he was a member. In 1937, he trademarked his invention, which today is known as the trampoline.
2. After drawing up a sketch, six-year-old Robert Patch created the toy truck and received a patent for his idea in 1963. And thanks to Patch, companies like Tonka are thriving and little boys (and some girls) are having heaps of fun playing dump-trunk man in the sandbox.
3. The next time you hop on a snowmobile, send out a little thanks to Joseph-Armand Bombardier. Back in 1922, this 15-year-old Canadian got to work on a garage project with his brother. Fast-forward 15 years and lots of engine grease later and you have the first snowmobile.
4. In 1905, Frank Epperson, then 11-years-old, accidentally froze soda pop as he left his drink out on the porch during a cold night with a stick stuck in it. After he made some money off a real estate investment, he applied for the Epsicle patent in 1924, but later changed the name to a Popsicle.
So what are some of your million-dollar ideas?
