Exploring the mind of the greatest inventor of all time made me think about solutions for problems we are facing on Earth today – from technological to environmental issues up to the social issues. Few years ago I went to Prague after many years where I found out that a lot of things has changed from time when I lived in that city. I stopped at my favorite bar and there I saw the same barman working like at the times when I came to Prague to study. I said to him “Everything has changed in Prague but here it seems that it all staid the same.” He laugh and said “No. I mean the place is the same but not people. People has changed a lot. Young generations does not know what life is anymore.” I said – how come? He said – look around what do you see? He said- do you see that ? They are all constantly on the telephones like they will miss something..
He said – look those two they are obviously on a date here but they do not look to each other eyes they are barley talking, but probably they are now sending messages to each other via messanger or instagram– I laugh, but then I really start to look around and see it is true.
What I was experiencing for a while now, was watching people looking to their cell phones and their reactions on the subways of New York or at the beautiful beach with amazing colors in Mexico or even on the airplanes asking nervously the stewardess why wifi is not working?
Even my nephew came to me a few months ago and I asked him something and he answered lol. I said what did you say? He said when I am too lazy to laugh I say lol that is the same, if I would laugh out loud on what you just said. I said – aha, so should touch your nose to give you a like or what? Than he laugh and never said lol to me again because he realized how stupid that is.
So, I was thinking if half of the world became junkies of internet and social medias what can be made to make something good out of this – to look at amazing contents there and at the same time also straighten the brain? What would be the thing that would make people questioned in the phone and find solutions in life? So we started to develop a new game to learn out more what energy really is and how to produce it…
