    Have you made this? Are you Kathy F. Atkinson? If not, you should ask her permission to use it here and credit her properly.

    Well, the user name is the same as the University of Delaware recruitment page for research on the device, plus the video he attempted to embed is for the same institution (both credit Cole Galloway).

    At any rate, I'm looking forward to the completion of this 'ible - it would be wonderful for parents to be able to make this at home to help their children explore a little more independently :)
