Soccer Playing Robot Cows - Probably
Today was spent herding small children and coaches at a Lego Robotics Competition at Evergreen Aviation Museum. The robots were for the most part small, practical looking atomatons that served their purposes with more practical skill than finesse, as one might expect from robots made of Legos. There was certianly copious ammounts of story inspiration to be had from delightful little quips spoken as seriously as only second graders can speak to "incidences" that had the coordinators gnashing their teeth and checking the venue insurance policies.
