As a resident of Hackney, Fi Glover has been fascinated by the way her home patch is being turned into one of the world's most important internet start up centres. Old Street Roundabout has been renamed Silicon Roundabout. In this series of One to One Fi talks to the men and women responsible for this boom . She wants to know more about this generation of tech gurus, who they are and what inspires them. Part of our economic future lies in their hands and the products and services they're developing now, we may well be using daily in less than a decade. Makie Lab, founded by Alice Taylor, is a smart toy company. With 3D printing Alice believes that we'll soon be able to customise our own toys, making dolls in our own image or from our own imagination.
