Comment Inventor/Builder and Computers (Score 2) 270

My first computer was a TRS-80 color edition.

At the time I got it, I spent a large part of my time finding and making materials to build tree houses. The best part of the computer was I didn't need physical materials to build something. I could type up a set of materials and use them. This really satisfied my need to invent and build stuff.

I have just started showing my daughter, age 7, how she can build stuff on a computer using the Unreal Engine. She already does "art work" in Minecraft design mode. The idea of more realistic materials got her interest.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
