The adage “don’t reinvent the wheel” is frequently used to discourage people from wasting their time on something that has already been done. What if the wheel must be reinvented? What if it breaks? We are overjoyed that the idiom “don’t reinvent the wheel” has been demolished. We’re even happier that someone came up with a design for the wheel by literally breaking it. Thank you to The Q (Ukraine) for creating this.
The Q YouTube Channel
The Q YouTube channel posts videos of them making various science-related projects such as how to make a vending machine, how to make a flip book, and many other science experiments. This is a YouTube channel that students and young children should watch on a regular basis.
The video begins with the bicycler riding a bicycle and accidentally breaking his wheel, which prompts his thought process, “Why can’t I use the broken wheel?” The user then goes to his workshop and begins working on this idea, and you must watch the rest of the video to learn to see more.
Why should the wheel be reinvented?
There are plenty of examples of times when the status quo just isn’t good enough and someone needs to come up with a better way of doing things. That’s why we need innovation and creativity, even (or especially) when it comes to something as seemingly simple as a wheel. We hope that this article has helped to clear up any confusion surrounding the idiom “don’t reinvent the wheel.” As you can see, the idiom is broken and no longer makes sense in today’s world. We should all be striving to innovate and create new things, rather than simply following what has already been done. So next time someone tells you not to reinvent the wheel, just smile and nod — because they’re actually telling you to do exactly what you’re supposed to be doing.
