A Sweeping Device With Two Heads
Samuel Thomas Houghton, a 3-year-old British boy, saw his father sweeping their backyard one day, switching back and forth between a small broom and a large broom.
He believed there could be an easier way to do the job. So, he came up with an effective & imaginative solution by strapping the two different brooms together with a large rubber band.
He called it a ‘SWEEPING DEVICE WITH TWO HEADS’.
Samuel is one of the youngest people ever to have been granted a patent at the age of just 5!
