I hope you had a good Christmas. I spent a large part of Christmas afternoon building a motor powered paper aeroplane launcher for Eddie, that Chieko had kindly bought him from the Science Museum. That was quite a technical challenge for me, but satisfying to see it working in the end. This is the first […]
