(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Sabah Al-Ahmad Center for Giftedness and Creativity (SACGC) has made it possible for Kuwaiti youth to unleash their imagination and come up with ideas for inventions that can be turned into reality.

As an initiative by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to discover and sponsor talented and creative Kuwaitis, SACGC, an affiliate of Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS), was established in 2010.

The center takes gifted and talented persons under its wings and provides them with proper financial support in order to develop their skills and encourage them to keep on innovating.

It also helps inventors to register their patents locally and internationally to protect their intellectual property rights and make available special workshops and programs to empower those individuals.

Hence, Kuwaiti youth now has a nurturing environment to adopt them and help them turn ideas, big or small, into products than can be used in real life. Many individuals have benefited from the support given by SACGC and have made a name for themselves in the realms of scientific creativity and business.

The center's "Kuwaiti Inventions: from Concept to Reality" book showcases 26 prominent patented inventions that could be used in hospitals, households, vehicles and offices, just to name a few.

Inventor Abdulridha Al-Saffar created 'Sub-surface Irrigation System;' a system that is developed for farms and sports fields of all kinds and spaces.

It guarantees that 90 percent of water is utilized for irrigation. The system can be controlled by a computer program that specifies the amount and time of water needed, the book shows.

A 'Surgical Needle Holder' was invented by Dr. Hassan Al-Shammari to help surgeons in moving the needle in diffcult circumstances such as narrow areas and allows the surgeon's hand to be in a comfortable positions while operating on patients.


The 'Bee House' invention by Fahad Al-Azmi is created to keep bee swarms for dying due to high temperature by equipping the house with AC and thermal isolation. The smart architecture allows bees to fly in and out, let the sunlight in, and prevents air flow. The roof is adjustable to allow control of the inner temperature to keep the bees safe.

Another invention featured in the book is 'Automatic Fire Extinguisher' by Mohammad Al-Azmi. The difference between an automatic fire extinguisher and a regular one is that the automated one has a thermo sensor that triggers the device to work in case of fire. The design of this extinguisher makes it always land safely on its bottom to keep the user safe.

Another useful invention for the country's harsh weather conditions is a 'Portable Car Cover' by Mansour Al-Mutairi. It is a flexible sheet of plastic or fabric that has for foldable legs. Each of the legs in connected to a base by an adjustment mechanism for positioning the upper end of the legs to stretch the cover over the automobile.

The 'Thermal Breathing Bed' is another smart invention by Sulaiman Al-Khattaf, which creates a cradle that mimics the mother's breathing and her body warmth through a mattress that is designed to move up and down and provide body-like warmth. The mattress also plays music for calm sleep.

All of these inventions would not have been able to see the light if it weren't for the support and help given by the SACGC. It is always seeking to discover more talented individuals, not only to enable the center to be recognized internationally, or nurture innovations for the country's developmental purposes, but also to make a name for inventors on global levels.
