The Future will be Owned by Tinkerers

The video below is a good example for why the developing world, that's right, the developing world, will produce the next wave a great engineers and inventors.  Children in the United States, and other first-world countries, lack hands on learning experiences.  When they do get a chance to tinker, it is in a controlled environment under the "guidance" of trained professionals; often times in elective or weekend classes.  Once the kids arrive home they operate in a hermetically-sealed world where if they need something, they buy it, and if it's broke they replace it.
