Happy Birthday Hood #2 and an Interview.

June 12th, 2009 · 8 Comments

I hope we have many more wild and wacky years with you…


You were the inventor of the teeny-tiny “outback phone” and I know that apple stole your idea and called it the i-phone. Would you like to tell us about your invention?

  • This phone could access the internet and send emails, sms’s, contact other computers and phone. You could watch movies, listen to music and take pictures with it.


You invent a lot of goodies and gadgets, could you tell us where you find your inspiration.

  • Actually most of my inventions are improvements and adaptions to things that already exist.


You are a night owl do you think this is an attribute of a great inventor?

  • Yes, it gives you lots of time to think in P&Q. (That’s peace and quiet!)


When you start implementing your inventions will you be looking for staff or will siblings do for the job?

  • I will use siblings, they are more cost effective!


If you could invent and build an invention right out of your head right now what would it be?

  • I am working on a super-computer: super-fast web access, a built in projector… and really really compact.


What is a good food to keep inventors going:

  • Energy food like chocolate and so definitely hot chocolate. Actually, inventors survive on Coke but my mother wouldn’t allow it.


Do you think you will always be an inventor?

  • Oh yes, once an inventor always an inventor.


Thank-you so much for your time I hope 10 is a fabulous year for you and that you get to read a bazillion more books than you did when you were 9!

    WOW! Hood #2 is so divine. I love the pictures of him which remind me of times we’ve been together. I’ve always known he was brilliant and his inventions are going to make our world a better place. Hang in there and never stop thinking! Sorry about the coca-cola, but your mother is very cool 🙂 Love you always!

    i love the interview!!!

    I think the chocolate will have to fuel him; no coke (rots your teeth and you don’t want to waste time at the dentist when you could be inventing)

    OH MAN, they’re so cute when they’re little!
