Over 3,000 Dream Machines invented in Portugal

Here are 10 of the 3,000 Dream Machine drawings made during the Óbidos Vila Natal Festival in December 2023. Óbidos is the city that hosts the MyMachine Portugal HQ and the unique MyMachine House. The end of year festival attracts thousands of visitors. A marvellous occasion to ask them to make a drawing of their Dream Machine!

Our MyMachine Portugal team was overwhelmed with the dreams, wishes, and concerns of young people who have shared their drawings with us. Here’s a random selection of 10 of them:

  • The Assistant-Robot is a robot we connect to our heads to help us do our homework, by Beatriz C. From Vialonga, Portugal.
  • Flatitulinea is a spraycan with a thousand colors inside it, by Claudia, from Corunha, Spain.
  • The Dream-Collector is a machine used to record our dreams so we can see them again when we wake up, by Ana Rita, from Lisbon, Portugal.
  • Make Me Happy is a machine that turns sad people who enter it into happy people, by Camila, from Sesimbra, Portugal.
