In a 2008 interview with Machine Design, Imahara told the post that he wanted to be an engineer because I “liked the challenge of designing and building things, knowing how something works and how to improve it or apply it differently. As a kid, I never wanted to be James Bond. I wanted To be Q, because he was the man who made all the tools. I think you can say the engineering came naturally. ”
