Popular Science has announced the 2009 Invention Awards for the top 10 groundbreaking inventions that originated from the minds and perseverance of individual inventors. These inventions did not have big companies behind them with a big research lab and lots of money. You won't see the likes of Apple® or Motorola® or Honda® among this list. Just folks like you and me whose inventions will make a major impact on the way we live, work, learn, play, and even manage intelligence in battle.
Most inventors have pets. I can be safe with that statement, because most people have pets, whether they're dogs or cats, rabbits, fish, birds, snakes, geckos, etc. PetSmart knows this and instead of turning to its usual providers of products for new ideas, it's turning to us: inventors who know how to create innovative solutions to improve life!
