Result
Well, you won't be inventing anything anytime soon, that's for sure. That's assuming this quiz has anything to do with your ability to invent. Which we suppose it doesn't...so maybe you will invent something of your own soon? Might as well try!

Right!
You're well on your way to being a master of invention, but you have a few more steps to go. You missed some of the tougher ones, but we're sure with a little more practice, you'll be ready to knock this one out of the park.

You're a master inventor! You know an uncanny amount about items invented in the 1960's (and the 40's and 80's by proxy, at least a little bit). Good work! We're not sure knowing the timeline of inventions will help you invent something yourself...but you might as well try!
