I’m sorry. I can’t spend long writing this column. As I pen these words, I’m up to my armpits in alligators fighting fires without a paddle (I never metaphor I didn’t like).

Having said this, I couldn’t resist sharing something with you. My chum Jay Dowling just sent me the link to an amazing educational Clicbot Robot Kickstarter Project. Even though there are still 35 days to go at the time of this writing, this little beauty has already raised $371,000 of its modest $25,000 goal and I can understand why, as will you when you watch this video.


Make sure you also watch the video at the top of the Kickstarter page, because this gives more details about the various modules. Just watching the way in which you can interact with this little beauty makes me drool with desire.

To be honest, although I’ve been exposed to some amazing things in academic and research settings, I can’t recall seeing anything this versatile in the public domain. How about you? What are your thoughts on the cunning capabilities of the Clicbot?
