Robo Rucksack

Six-year-old James Scowcroft came up with the idea of a talking schoolbag, which can remind students of the things they need to pack.
James devised his Robo Rucksack, with flashing antenna and five buttons to allow the owner to pre-record messages, as part of a museum competition.

James's bag was judged the best and turned into reality by design firm Innovate.

James said he is keen to keep on inventing in the future, with a rucksack that helps with the cleaning next on his list, along with a time machine to allow him to see the way his mum looked "in the old days".

The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, England sponsored the competition. I want two, as I repeat myself too many times about packing a schoolbag every morning! Link ~via Arbroath

there has been a recent wave of inventive tots and their new gadgets. the ideas all seem perfectly in-line with what you'd expect from the mind of a kid, but the execution of the concept appears to be more in-line with what you'd expect from the mind (and abilities) of an adult. all of which is fine, but the impression that the article suggests is that this sweet six-year-old generated a working prototype on his own as well...which is very, very unlikely.
