If you're a kid interested in technology, this is the best time to be alive. Technology is more accessible than ever, and you can learn programming and robotics for a fraction of what it used to cost. One of the companies that's driving the affordable educational robotics movement is a Shenzhen-startup called MakeBlock.
mBot from MakeBlock is a sub-$100 robot with Scratch and Arduino programming compatibility. They've made robotics for kids easier than ever before with simple sensor connectors and intuitive instructions. Check out my first impressions of the mBot in the video above.
