Liisu, The Inventor

Estonian Seniors Invention Championships

LIISU - The Inventor

Liisu has won the Estonian Seniors Inventing Championships 65 times in a row. She looks pretty fit for being a century old, doesn’t she? And do you know why? Because instead of yarn, her spinning wheel actually produces vitamin D.

It’s not that Liisu’s family is short of yarn anyway – they have a special printing machine in the barn to produce socks and sweaters in unlimited quantities. See, you just put a sheep in, and fresh socks and a shorn sheep come out. It’s as easy as that!

Some of Liisu’s inventions aren’t too practical – there’s the flying rake, and the carrot-shredding app, for example. But as the cheerful inventor says herself, “If I don’t make these apps, someone else will!”
