Shall we go for a walk?

Shall we go for a walk?

I don’t follow the news much. Important news finds its way to me anyway, and I’ll jump into action if it affects me, or I can affect it. The energy I have saved not worrying about things can then be used for good, I hope!

Covid-19 affects us all. I’ve regularly been contacted about making ventilators, but my guess was that lots of people would be doing the same, so I’d only be reinventing the wheel. I don’t do that. I thought about ways that I might help, and came up with two ideas:


The first is a way to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses at source. I looked at the challenge from a systems engineering perspective, and found what I believe to be a simple and effective solution. A few pennies spent preventing infection can save a life and tens of thousands of pounds in treatment further down the line. Watch this space!


My second thought was to find a way for us to get out and about, even when we are in lockdown. I found a way that we can explore our familiar world, but in virtual reality, and so far I have had hundreds of people visit the site to play in these worlds. It has become so popular that I have decided to remove my test sites, develop the concept further, and relaunch it in September as a fully-fledged “game”. Again, watch this space!
