He is currently working on the research & prototyping of autism-sensory 'toys' for children living with autism, that aim to encourage a sense of social-interaction & collaboration whilst engaging them through the use of robust, yet tactile materials, sensors, sounds and light, employing both Kodály & Suzuki methodology to aid in their personal development.
