    http://www.longtail.com/the_long_tail/2007/03/two_words_lego_.html This is the coolest thing EVER!!!! Auto-pilot for Legos!!!! If they had this stuff when I was a kid, who knows what sort of trouble I might've gotten in to.

      LEGO Mindstorm still only works with PC, right? Just as well. I live with 2 generations of LEGO freaks and don't need to encourage the obsession any more than possible (hubby saved all of his, so now our son has thousands of pieces of LEGO, some almost 30 years old). BTW, within days of Dane starting low-dose Ritalin he could sit for hours doing complex LEGO projects for ages 6-12 following multi-page instructions. It was amazing. Prior to that he wouldn't sit and do anything more difficult than those tiny sets with minimal pieces and very simple one-sheet plans. Smile k

            He follows the instructions to build a set once, then after that he starts coming up with some really crazy contraptions! Like father, like son! Big grin k
