The Science Museum
unveiled a new interactive exhibition designed to inspire a new generation of British innovators. The exhibition, Wallace & Gromit present A World of Cracking Ideas, was launched by Nick Park, Creator of Wallace & Gromit. The exhibition opened to the public on Saturday 28 March and runs until Sunday 1 November.
The exhibition takes visitors on a tour through 62 West Wallaby Street, the famous home of Wallace & Gromit, from the kitchen to the garden shed, taking in objects from the Science Museums collections, alongside Wallaces own cracking contraptions such as the Thinking Cap Machine, the Tellyscope, the Piella Propellor and the Blend-o-matic.
Each room in the house, from the kitchen to the garden shed, looks at a different aspect of the thinking process behind ideas and show visitors how they can protect their intellectual property through patents, trademarks, designs and copyright, ensuring they derive maximum value from their ideas.
Visitors are encouraged to come up with their own creative ideas, which they can jot down and leave at Ideas Stations located in the Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Bathroom, Workshop and Garden.
