As scientists learn more about the brain and how it operates, new theories are being put forward that imagination is actually the sixth sense and can be put at risk as much as seeing, touch, and hearing. It is also a fact that the current materialistic lifestyle is affecting the planet one carbon footprint at a time. One toy designer in Budapest, Hungary, has set about combining the two in the form of a toy designed to allow kids to develop cognitive function by using their imagination while playing with a toy that is reducing the carbon footprint both in how it is made and how it gives. His team has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to manufacture the toy, Rollark, with high precision and to expand the base of their current manufacturing workshops.
