Unlike the light bulb or the computer, inventions on display in one Cullen College of Engineering classroom last week will never be mass-produced for the American home.

A rough construction from household items, childhood toys and even Hurricane Ike remnants, students crafted curious contraptions to fill bowls with milk and cereal, decorate Christmas cookies, deliver a television remote by plane, pour a can of soda into a glass and turn a switch on and off.
