“I wanted to spend every waking hour playing computer games when I was a teenager. My father would try all sorts of tactics to get me to moderate my gaming. Including turn off the mains power to the whole house”. “But if we can help parents to balance their children’s daily gaming time. We hope this may contribute to an increase in their overall health and their exam results.” said James potter.
Moreover, James developing QTIME over the past two years, provided parents with the prototype device to test over a two week period with many parents keen to hold into the device.
