The PlayStation 4 that is now connected to our flat-screen television can present things that I couldn’t even have dreamed of in the mid-70s as I played Pong. The hardware, the software and the experience are of a standard that has become more than just game-play.
If we were able to bring a medieval carpenter forward in time and present them with a modern construction site, there is very little that would not be recognisable to our medieval friend. What might they see? A large, muddy area with a stack of materials on the ground; a number of people carrying things; people waiting for materials to be moved from one place to another; some machinery for lifting materials. And, if it started raining, most of the work would stop.
