Matthew Ball has always had a keen interest in building things. At the age of 10 he was designing things such as an infinitely variable bike sprocket (that never worked), and a pedal hovercraft (that did). Not content with these, he later came across a copy of Ron Champion's 'Build your own sports car for as little as GBP250,' and built his own sports car for GBP3000. His interest in moving objects and machines led him to gain a degree in mechanical engineering, a useful qualification when building the first 1k camper.
