"Innovation is often born out of necessity - the need to find solutions to problems faced every day. Inventions are created to make life easier, more efficient, or more fun. They range from simple to complex, inspired by an inventor's personal life of occupation. In some cases, these inventions create solutions that have widespread impact, benefiting the lives of people around the world. These inventors had the vision and creativity to improve and create everyday items that many take for granted."
