'The Everything Machine' is a kid-friendly iPhone app that parents can let their kids use. The app is both easily understandable and an educational tool for kids.

What makes the app ingenious is that it gives users complete creative control and not only lets them do basic things like draw and take pictures but also encourages them to use their imagination. The app begins by introducing kids to a drawer of components with features like microphones, colors, vibration and music. All of these elements are already built into the phone but are just simplified for kids.

The objective of the mobile platform is for kids to use their imagination and to combine different items from the drawer to create their very own apps. The results so far have been astonishing, with kids creating funny, creative apps that adults would never have never come up with.
