In This Week's Show

As Skylanders Giants approaches we publish our interview with I-Wei Huang, the driving force behind the design for the videogame and toy Skylanders characters. In particular he talks about the process of creating each character and how they battled for female toys in the line-up that weren't just pink versions of the male ones. We also talked to Robert Leyland the brains behind the portal about how the technology was invented -- a tale of electrnoic components, copper wires and solder.
