Vaughn talks with Brian Kitchen, the winner of the Supreme ASB Bright Sparks award at only 13. His very first invention Xtionberry Pi is a 3D scanner for mapping caves.

As well as winning the trophy for the Bright Sparks award, he won $1,400 from ASB to spend on his upcoming endeavors.

Brian is into flying drones and hopes his next invention can include some, describing his "Xtionberry Pi" as having a box for its batteries, a keyboard, some 'electronic bits' and a tiny computer.

Brian explains how he wants to get into science and technology after High School, and tells us exactly what is a Rasberry Pi...
