On Thursday night’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, three innovative youth, ages 10 to 15, were presented with cash awards for their inventions in a feature called “Fallonventions.” The Tonight Show partnered with GE to award each inventor $5,000. Wow!

The kids were such fun to watch — such personalities! — and Fallon even introduced some of his recent “inventions.” Check out these pictures and learn more about what each young inventor did.

  • 10 year old Braden Ensign developed the “Pizza Decrustifier” which removes pizza crusts in one simple motion. It cuts the pizza for you too!
  • Jessica Holte, age 10, features her “EZ-Moo”, a dispenser for milk designed for those who might have trouble lifting a gallon milk jug, such as young children and elderly.
  • Last, but not least, 15 year old Suman Mulumud shows his “Steth IO” smartphone case and app. Standard stethoscopes can’t record, visualize, or save sound clips of heartbeat sounds, but Mr. Mulumud’s invention can!

Thank you Jimmy Fallon for featuring these kids and showing us that inspiration and innovation can have rewards!
