(NBCNEWS) A south Florida six grader has invented a new sandbag design without sand. His invention can potentially revolutionize the way people deal with flooding. Several weeks ago, Peyton won first place for his innovative sandbag design. His bag is light weight, re-usable, and since the bag doesn't inflate until it touches water, there are less gaps between each bag, adding increased flood protection. Peyton says superstorm Sandy and hurricane Wilma inspired him to create the bags.
The sandless sandbag isn't Peytons only invention.
