Technology, that is in essence: to solve a problem. In Team Scheire we see that happen. Laszlo is a fifteen-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who wants to play games. Roland has jongdementie and can be difficult to independent a grunt task to get done. Scheires team of scientists and garageknutselaars (or creators, as it is called) tries to be solved. A strong concept, and yet, Scheire and co. egg so after the bend.

As long as it is about science and technology goes, they are in their element. But that is in this first episode but a few minutes. Canvas choose rather for sentiment, in the belief that you are thus to a wider audience. Hence we get the family of Laszlo and the wife of Roland stilted sentences in the camera say, about what a difference the team can make in their lives.

Canvas and Scheire walk too much with their good intentions to purchase. Constantly thumbs we that Philippe Geubels suddenly invades and that hersenverlamden and jongdementerenden in the falls. Unfortunately. Instead we get Scheire that expressly to tell the camera what every viewer already understood: ‘Laszlo wants, virtual be able to do what he is in real life can not and probably never will.” And so you know right away how the episode will end: with the avatar of Lazslo in Grand theft auto 5 free walking and swimming.

Also a lot of discussion between Scheire and his team-mates feel in the stage. That is not a disaster – finally wants the viewer a complete story. But you do get the feeling that the reality of Laszlo and Roland is more complex than here portrayed.

Therefore, we have a bit of doubt about the impact that the ‘inventions’ final of them will have.

Certainly the ‘solution’ that Roland is plugged in, it looks overly complicated. The man gets a specially written app on a tablet, plus a smartwatch on the wrist from which the voice of his wife him instructions read. The final scene we do not really convince that he is in this really helped. This works really better than a paper to-dolijstje and what post-its (and is reliable)? And if the program succeeds, has this series the courage to show?

The story of Laszlo has a more convincing happy ending. The gamingtafel maker Anthony in the other runs with solder, silver foil and a opensourcecomputerplatform allows the boy to Grand theft auto to play. About the educational value of that game, opinions vary, but the pure fun is from Laszlo’s eyes to read.

Team Scheire. Monday evening at 21.20 hours on Canvas
