It's great to see toy companies embrace engineering and science and make it fun and 'cool' to learn.  I'd like to see more companies make products which help teach these subjects to our young minds for the upcoming generation.

Where was this level of sophistication in LEGOs when I was a kid? I hate to admit, I am jealous. This is a great was to introduce kids to robotics, light electronic design, and programming. I have seen plenty of projects using LEGO's mindstorm and NXP platforms that are simply stunning, for what it is.

You know.. I just might pick up a set.

ps. Remember the electronics learning kits from RadioShack back before it was call "The Shack?" Those kits started me down the path I've been in for most of my life.
