Havas Dusseldorf's Arnaud Atchimon introduces you and your children to the wonderful world of creative technology.

"Any child born in the last 10 years can build most of the projects I have mentioned above sitting in their living room."

As a creative technologist, I feel so envious of my son’s generation. They were born just at the right time to experience Teslas heading to the asteroid belt, self-driving cars, AI chatbots, walking robots, smart everything and Arduino. But be not afraid for your little ones, technology isn’t that bad for them after all. Now come with me and I’ll show you why you may be putting the next Elon Musk to bed.

My son has no idea that printing means printing words on paper.

It is a shame that for someone who loves printed art, I have not owned a paper printer since my son was a toddler. But I did own a few 3D printers. So every time he would run up to me, he would gleefully ask me, “Daddy can you print me a puppet? Can you print me a car? Can you print me a Pokémon?” In his mind, everything he wanted would magically appear from the noisy box in the corner of the room – and in a way, he is right.

Any child born in the last 10 years can build most of the projects I have mentioned above sitting in their living room.

Don’t worry, there are plenty of toys and programming tools to introduce both you and your children to the wonderful world of creative technology. Here you can find a few:

1. Scratch: Scratch is a visual programming language created by M.I.T. It allows kids of any age to build interactive projects by stacking blocks together. Each block has an action attached to it. By combining them, you can produce some really interesting behavior. Give it a try here. It’s free.

2. Primo: Primo was a successfully funded and delivered Kickstarter which gave toddlers the possibility to develop their first projects while playing. The Primo platform is composed of a controller and a little wooden toy robot that will act according to the set of actions chosen on the controller. If you prefer letting your little one program with their own hands, instead of sitting in front of a screen, the Primo toy is for you.
