Every now and again you might happen across an idea. If you’re like me the idea’s generally not yours, and you’re thinking that’s so simple why didn’t I rethink of that. I have come to the conclusion that largely it is how our minds have been conditioned to operate. If you have been brought up and educated in an environment that allowed and positively encourage free thinking; one where more or less anything goes, you may just have come up with a similar concept to that of my featured guest on this week’s podcast.

Omer Haciomeroglu is a Turkish student with an incredible talent and self application. His award winning concept for a remote controlled device that not only carries out building demolition, but then separates and recycles the the products derived, and packages them for re-sale. Wouldn’t you want him on your team? I tracked him down having some well earned rest post project completion. Click the play button to hear what he has to say.
