Keep in mind that these robot kits are perfect if you are ready to get into robotics & want to build a lot of robots!! If you like construction toys like LEGO & want to learn how to make them "do" things, robotics is for you. 

As for the Vex IQ Robotics Kit, it is $300 & comes with 850 pieces including 7 sensors, 4 motors, radio controller, & robot brain. For programming the robot, you can use a graphical programming language Modkit or RobotC. This robot kit is generally used in classrooms, robotics clubs, or for VEX robotics competitions. However, you can also teach yourself at home through the free online curriculum & tutorials. Keep in mind that if you're still in elementary school, you may need an adult to help you get started.

  • I really like the idea of ciztein insurgencies. To me this is a big uncertainty at the moment around the world. From the Arab Spring where it has been successful in generating regime change like Tunisia and Egypt and to heralding civil war like Libya and Syria to the Occupy movements in the west, it is unknown whether they will gain sufficient traction to generate change in social policy or government. You can also tie this one with the future of news and how people obtain information about world events and the extent to which this will be controlled by media companies and government. Completing the loop in western countries is the race to govern for the masses and for political leaders to follow the herd rather than to make the hard decisions and lead the population.
