I was talking to my 11yo nephew the other day and found out that he wants to be a robotics engineer. I told him his first job is to design a laundry-bot for me. Mainly for hanging/folding/storing and putting away the laundry.

I've also got a gluten-detection ray on order, kind of like the tri-corders from Star Trek. Just point the gluten-detector at anything, and it tells you if it's gluten-free or not. Even detects the slightest cross contamination.

There's also the idea of a gluten-zapper, but we never talked about how it might work... Ideas?

Anyone else wanna place an order? :D

I thought that we could think of a cute list of ideas to give my nephew.

Dinner-bot, that I can program when I'm home and call to activate when I leave work so dinner is always ready when I walk in the door.

hm, can't think of anything off the top of my head, but i thought I'd mention that my 15 y-o brother is in a robotics club through his high school. He LOVES it! They have exibits at malls and science fair things, and they compete w/ other schools. they are even going to Disneyland this spring! It seems like a really fun thing to get into!
