Game #7: What were the inventors thinking?
The prize: Up for grabs is one children’s music CD from the Thingamababy prize vault. The one selected winner will be given a list and be asked to choose from it.
Your challenge: identify the function of the following two baby or toddler-related inventions depicted in patent diagrams.
- The invention on the left is intended to assist with babies who are not doing what they’re supposed to. If you think the invention is a baby bottle, you need to describe how it differs from a regular one.
- The invention on the right is about 12 inches long, 9.5 inches wide and 1 inch thick. It has no pockets.
Game Deadline: I’ll randomly pick one winner in 7 days or less. The winner need not be accurate or humorous, but come on, have some fun. The game is open to anyone anywhere in the world so long as you give me your mailing address within a week of my notifying you by e-mail that you won.
Using the comment form below, guess at the imagined functions of the two inventions depicted above.
