My riddle of the day:

My first is not out
My second’s for air
My third is when someone can’t play:
it’s not fair!
Together we’re new
Alone or a few
Our Mother is need
Inspiration’s the seed.

Some great videos on Invention!  The first few are by an artist/inventor named Arthur Ganson. Wow!

The next is a video about a man in Holland who creates sand beasts:

The last is a great site for kids to try playing with virtual machine parts, care of Wallace and Gromit:

Fun times!

Answer to the riddle?  N-O-I-T-N-E-V-N-I
(Backwardize it to see the answer, of course!  And forgive the shun/tion play on sound.)
