This Dream Machine idea has been elaborated as part of the MyMachine DreamsDrop Campaign 2021
We selected this Dream Machine idea to be part of the MyMachine DreamsDrop 2021 Campaign.
Creativity going global. We are thrilled to share that our DreamsDrop Campaign 2021 has given over 500 children the opportunity to invent and upload their dream machine drawings to our world-map of ideas. Children from all continents have joined and they are from 21 countries: Morocco, South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique, India, Vietnam, Turkey, Armenia
Australia, New Zealand, Cyprus, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Poland, Canada, Usa, Mexico, Ecuador, and Bolivia.
Those hundreds and hundreds of ideas go along the spectrum of fun, solving a personal problem, to create a solution for their community and others for a global issue. That is the true power of our open-ended approach.
In total 39 ideas were selected. For those ideas, Proof-of-Concepts (scale-models) have been build by 130 Industrial Product Design Students from
- the Industrial Design Center at HOWEST University of Applied Sciences (Belgium) and
- School of Design at Technológico de Monterrey Escuela de Arquitectura, Arte y Diseño, campus Querétaro (Mexico).
In this case, college students from Belgium worked on making a proof-of-concept. They had only 2 days. The results -considering such a short term- are astonishing.

In the beginning of the video you hear the students saying "I am a student of IPO". What that means is that they are students at the School of Industrial Product Design at Howest University of Applied Sciences.
(IPO is short for (Dutch) "Industrieel Product Ontwerpen" = (English) "Industrial Product Design")
