Oops...We Goofed! A Look At Inventions
Everyone makes mistakes! Our site is a look at inventions and situations that didn't turn out as they were originally intended. We look at mistakes that worked, accidents that turned into something good, odd inventions that never become widely used and Rube Goldberg, an artist who drew cartoons of inventions that made simple tasks overly complicated. We included a section on simple machines (the nuts and bolts of inventions) and added a Riddles page so visitors could test their knowledge.
