Remotely speaking...

Four members of the "Blue Twilight Team 2220" robotics team from Eagan High School demonstrated their competition ready robot at a recent Eagan Rotary lunch meeting. The robot picked up the rubber ring off the floor and moved with it.

  1. Well, l guess I don't know what to say...not exactly a household object. I admire their ingenuity and willingness to experiment. Did they say how this was going to help mankind? I guess I have no imagination!! I want something that will scrub the floors for me, make the beds, change the linens, do the laundry and cook the evening meal. Not too much to ask!
    Have a happy week-end...enjoy life!

  6. Robot school projects are becoming the norm globally. In Indonesia, a few high schools are starting to introduce these projects to their students.

  7. What is it with kids and robots? Just today my 8 year old grandson told me he was building a moving robot that would be half his size.
    One of my first TV memories is of I, Tobor (robot spelled backwards), the giant robot in the 1949-53 TV series "Captain Video and his Video Rangers."
