Today is apparently Love Your Robot Day. Who comes up with these things?!? All I can tell from a quick search of the web is that is has been on February 7 since at least 2004. But it falls on a good day this year, since my son's 4-H Lego robotics club meets tonight - and those kids certainly love their robots. They are working on programming James Bot 007, which will sneak into a dark room (or large cardboard box), take pictures of the insides, and escape with the film intact. It is more complicated than it sounds, and takes a lot of trial and error programming.
