One ofBritain’s leading inventors has warned that a ‘Google generation’ who rely on the internet for everything are in danger of becoming ‘brain-dead’.
Trevor Baylis, who invented the wind-up radio, said children are losing creativity and practical skills because they spend too much time in front of screens.
The 75-year-old said he fears that the next generation of inventors is being lost, with young people often unable to make anything with their hands.
