It all started with a simple request:
Ivan let me hear my favorite song!
Then all began…
I take my smartphone, open Spotify and start to play the song.
Then Luca, a 10yo child, takes his Nintendo DS and starts recording it, trying to sync it with my player.
We listen to the recorded song, Luca disappoints the volume is too low, despite we tried our best to make it the most loud as possible.
So he takes another Nintendo DS and starts to record the recorded song.
Then he played the two recordings at the same time and he smiles: now the volume is high enough…
Some days after he shows me a video he recorded with the Nintendo DS in his room: they are two tutorials where he explains how to shoot like his favorite soccer anime character.
Luca doesn’t have a YouTube account yet, but he created a WhatsApp group with his classmates and shared the video.
People who have children, or work with them (like me) are more and more surprised about this ability: it seems they were born with a smartphone in their hands.
When I talk with adults I’m used to say: “At 20yo they’ll build starships and we’ll have a coffee on Mars”.
In the meantime, on the other side of the globe, a young girl started to record cover songs on her own room using just few simple tools in realtime, and the results are surprising!
Here is a cover:
This is my story. What’s yours?
