Show Summary Details


This chapter presents the case of a young man dubbed as Tonka, after the toy manufacturing company, because of his attempts to create a flying backpack. Tonka began his project when he was seven. He devoted himself to it after school and during weekends for nearly two years. A serious illness at age nine interrupted his work, and he never resumed interest in it.
