At the Singapore Robotic Games where “automation is a key factor towards advancement… to a technologically sophisticated country” some people have built a maze for robots to run through.
This is very similar to something I had done in high school except my maze and robots were virtual. With the introduction of the LEGO Mindstorms things that were the domain of nerds in academic labs before are now accessible to a wider audience. This audience includes people of a younger age than was commonly seen before. I often wonder what technology that I drooled over a year ago will soon be inexpensive enough for me to buy and screw around with.
