The New Inventors is an Australian television show, which was aired on ABC1 and was hosted and comedian James O’Loghlin, also produced by Channel 10. Every week, three new inventions are revealed to the audience. Each day there is a short video package containing the short film, featuring the inventors. To date, James O’Loghlin has featured thirty-nine different inventions.
However, it is interesting to note that not all of the New Inventors picks are actually new inventions. Many are spinoffs, based on current products or existing technologies. For example, one of the spinoffs, created by the show was a game based on golf. So one new invention is a golf game, which is related to another existing game such as badminton.
If you’re looking for a good way to learn how to invent, this show is definitely worth watching. On the other hand, if you were looking for some inspiration, or looking for a new invention idea, you may want to look elsewhere. There are plenty of great video blogs, such as those at Do It Yourself World, Gadgets, and Gizmos that offer inspiration, and often show some real inventions that have been created recently. The new ideas may come from product innovations, or perhaps from creative applications of previously existing technology.
