      I get my inspiration from things around me. I see how things work in other materials and see if I can apply it to my work.

      I get inspiration when i least expect it. Spill me tea while driving, the cupholder needs to be redesigned. Hear about a new technology in science, think about ways to apply it to engineering.

      Inspiration comes from places you least expect it, and when you never expect it. So always questions everything, and pay attention to what you see day to day.

      Colin and Caoimhe gave very good answers. Everyone can be creative and invent new things….you have to believe you can do it and practice every day.
