In recent years, the tech industry has taken over the world, producing a long line of young millionaires that have revolutionized the way we use technology in our lives. However, many of these young people have not been eight-year-old’s, at least not until now.
The United Kingdom’s Walthamstow schoolboy, eight-year-old Callum Daniel, has founded his own firm, iCodeRobotics, to share his love of building and programming robotics with other people throughout the world.
Since a very young age, this UK-native has been fascinated with robots. “I developed a fascination with robots at four, when I met Titian, [a partly-mechanized costume controlled by an actor],” the young entrepreneur told The Guardian UK, “I wanted to find out how Titian worked and if I could build something so awesome. I demonstrated the robot at my school assembly and the interest from children everywhere was surprising. I was surrounded by a group of children, who like myself, enjoyed building robots but some couldn’t afford a kit. I asked my mum to enroll me on a robotic course, but couldn’t find one local to us, so I decided to set up my own company.”
In true entrepreneurial spirit, Daniel is already creating a huge amount of buzz in the industry. So much so, that he was invited to be a part of a panel of young entrepreneurs at a Bloomberg UKBlackTech event.
If he’s only eight and already headlining Bloomberg Tech events, Callum Daniel is definitely poised to soon take over Silicon Valley. For ore information on his company, visit their website here. Callum Daniel is definitely one to watch!
