Next week, I will re-start my regular blog posts. No really! I will. But for today, I just wanted to share something with you that I thought was pretty cool.
My son Aidan, who just turned five, loves to draw. When I get home late in the evening, I find sketches waiting for me on the kitchen counter. Fantastical drawings, featuring some of the coolest robot designs I have ever seen. He is better than I was at five years old, and his understanding of advanced robotics is really quite extraordinary.
Over the weekend, Aidan received a pad of tracing paper. While tracing paper might be frowned on later in your career, as a very young artist I frequently traced over some of my favorite artist's work just to get familiar with their lines. I couldn't have been prouder when Aidan asked me to sketch up a robot for him to trace.
He worked very, very hard to make it just right.
... and presto! Better than Dad's.
I think this kid has a future in robotics.
