An outstanding toy for children and adults
I have been a fan since Lego Mindstorms 2.0. This toy is an excellent way to teach cognitive development, building skills, computer programming, basic engineering, and problem solving. As a programmer for nearly 20 years I can say that this tool is perhaps the best method to teach programmers how to be better at what they do. Since the physical nature of this toy allows the programmer to get instant feedback on their "solution" it easily demonstrates design and programming flaws. This instant feedback is an excellent tool for improving professional programming skills. My son, who started programming Mindstorms at age 5, has progressed very well as a robotics engineer and has already improved his math and science grades. Very few toys could have such a broad and intense benefit.
