I wanted Power Wheels so bad! I could traverse the terrain of my neighborhood fairly easily with my Big Wheel, but I wasn't rocking in style. Funny thing is, I don't remember seeing many kids in my neighborhood with Power Wheels at all, but that commercial (Pow-pow-power wheels) was the best branding of that time. The song is still stuck in my head.

How do Power Wheels work? A simple rechargeable 12V battery provides power to turn the wheels when a kid presses on the accelerator. Yeah, I definitely wasn't getting one of those.

Forbidden Tech #3: Ninja Stars

Some kids build nice things. Other kids build dangerous things. But they're still building - same skills that can be used for good! Join my dog Leia and I as we take another stroll down Forbidden Drive in the Germantown area of Philly and talk about tech that we were forbidden to use.
