    Very smart kid. Now if he could only figure out how to incorporate latching speed!

    Most kids are content to just hang around and play video games.
    It’s very reassuring to see that some kids are thinking and building.

  9. Bryan McKeehan says:

    It does seem to have a latching problem though. Just saying.

  10. Rachel Smith says:

    Wow, I am really impressed.

    I guess his next step is to create a robot clone to go to school for him as well …

    I was pretty amazed by that. What a smart cookie!

      Me too! My son makes all sorts of movable Lego contraptions, but hasn’t attempted an auto operator yet. 🙂
