Even LEGO robots get stuff done

This is pretty cool.  LEGO robots are used in the lab at Cambridge University to grow bones.  There are a few things I really like about this.  First, it uses common off-the-shelf components to get something done.  Second, the people doing the work (growing bones) did not get hung up trying to figure something out – they just went and did it.  Lastly, it gives a prime example for kids that even playing with LEGOs is a worthwhile pursuit.  Now I just need to get a LEGO robot to wash my pick up.
