When I was fourteen I think it’s safe to say that I wasn’t a complicated child. I was born in an era without iPads, or virtual reality and I used to watch the kids on ‘Why Don’t You’ wishing I lived in the city and could go to play ice hockey or absail down an office block. But the closest I ever came to anything more exciting than throwing stones into the local pond was the dry ski slope half an hour away and that wasn’t much good for anything other than extreme rope burns.
These days, I would like to think that I’ve got a bit more depth than a 14 year old but when Qwerkity dropped us a line and said, ‘we’ve got loads of stuff for kids, adults and anyone in between, do you want to take a look at something for us?’ I was proved wrong. Within moments, I saw ‘Make Your Own Robotic Arm’ and I was sold. Grown ups don’t get to play with enough toys in my opinion, we’ve forgotten how to enjoy them, so this was my opportunity to remember and I loved it.
