My two ideas for Invent America- the grade school competition that encouraged adolescent Edisons to come up with life-changing products- were volcano ice cream (vanilla that would erupt w/ hot fudge after being microwaved) and shades with scenery that could change for people in hospitals. Someone put the second idea into production, I'm still waiting for Mt. St. Vanilla.
But word comes down the pipe via Wired's GEEKDAD, that 7-year-old Quaid Guarino has signed a non-disclosure agreement with LEGO and is in development talks for a completely new use for LEGO bricks that he has discovered. I'm always excited when children work with companies, like Joseph Gordon-Levitt helping the California Angels win the pennant.
