flickr wheel barrow cartFlickr user kklos2 has an impressive collection of photos from some of the projects he's completed lately. It's really inspiring to see so many useful items being made out of scrap material.

I especially liked his self propelled wheel barrow pictured to the right here. Images like this can help to release the inner inventor in us all and maybe provoke something completely different and wonderful.
