Illustrator brings children's doodle inventions to life

If you could create an invention that would make the world a better place, what would it be? Boring old adults would probably whip up something terribly sensible like a water purifier or a nuclear missile deterrent. But when The UK Domain asked primary school children to doodle their ideas, they came up with some wonderfully imaginative and innovative contraptions.

These inventions, including a Gun Sucker Inner and a Rubbish Eater that poops trees, have been turned into polished illustrations by The UK Domain. We love that these doodles show that you don't need to know how to draw or think like an adult to come up with brilliant ideas.
