Child Edison?

This just in … the world’s youngest drummer may be the world’s youngest inventor.

Julian Pavone, who at 20-months-old made headlines around the world with his talents as a drummer, has become perhaps the world's youngest inventor at the age of 3. Robert L. Kelly of Detroit metropolitan law firm Dickinson Wright PLLC, has filed an application for Julian's "Abracadabra" Stain Cover-Up which can be used to cover up stains on clothes, paint chips on musical instruments, walls, doors and many other items. Julian's invention consists of a container that he designed as a base drum that holds the needed color of the correction fluid and an applicator designed as a drum stick. Bernadino Pavone, Julian's father, described how his son developed the innovation as follows: "Julian, by accident, made a mark on an old T-shirt I was wearing. He felt bad but told me 'I will fix it.' He got some white out and used it to cover up the spot on the shirt and waved his hand and said 'Abracadabra.'
