Helium filled flying jump suit

I regularly come up with ideas for a project but end up not using them. Here’s one I did for my Selfridges window of inventions. A helium filled flying suit. I want to gently drift across the city to go to the pub or visit tower block living relatives…

(See the ones I did make here.)

My bath always seemed to be missing something, could not put my finger on it, then I realised what it was so I made it.

Bought a cherub and drilled a hole in it’s mouth, attached some pipes and glued them in place.

Two way toothpaste

two way toothpaste
My idea this week is a two way toothpaste, ideal for those who get angry with their partner for squeezing the toothpaste from the front. Simply open the other end and squeeze from the back as demonstrated below. Also quite useful for getting the last of the paste out of the bottom.

I admit that I squeeze from the front but I hope that by recognising the problem I have taken the first steps towards becoming a better person. With thanks to my excellent illustrator friend Clare Mallison for the use of her hand. For those who like this idea see my previous genetically modified egg or my home stats doorbell. <<Follow more ideas on Twitter/Facebook, © Dominic Wilcox.

I give talks about my work every now and again. The audiences are usually in darkness and I wonder what they are doing as I chatter away.
