This is a video demonstrating a Lego Mindstorms robot performing various tasks at a First Lego League competition. These are autonomous robots, which means they have to perform each task independently. The teams are made up kids aged nine to fourteen.
Nine to Fourteen.
When I was nine, I built Lego robots, but they only moved when I picked them up. Sometimes I fear we’re creating a race of super-nerds who will take over the world someday.
Then I realize that’s actually a good thing.
