This ingenious tool was designed by New Zealand teen Ayla Hutchinson as a student science fair project and has since earned numerous awards and international recognition from Scientific American, International TeenBusiness, Google and more. Ayla's hometown of Taranaki gets mighty cold in the winter and as Ayla explains, "When you are cold, you can never get the fire going fast enough. Lots of little kindling helps fires to start quickly and this is why I invented the Kindling Cracker (that, and to make sure my mum kept all of her fingers and limbs intact!)"
