Naughty Inventions

I watched Top Gear (the British show about fast and expensive cars) last night and the host, Jeremy Clarkson, was introducing a new car from Holden, an Australian car manufacturer.

He started off with the intro saying somewhat: Australian didn't have any smart engineers or inventions except for the creation of the Hills Hoist.

Although I'm not a Holden fan, I'm a big fan of inventions. He didn't seem to know we invented the Black Box Flight Recorder, the bionic ear, the combine harvester, etc.

I love learning new inventions and you can find a few heros in my stories as inventors. That get me thinking: I've yet to write a heroine as an inventor.

What kind of naughty inventions should she create?


  1. Clever idea to have heroes as inventors.
    Makes them unique.

  2. But it's hard to create an invention for the heroes though, a bit of science background or research is needed. Thanks Morgan.
