It Is Mildly Disconcerting

... to have a little robot running around the floor going, "HOORAY!" every time it gets the ball and brings it back to its goal.

It's even funnier when Jet's got it in scorpion mode and it starts hitting things in front of it with it's tail and the robot says, "Haiya!"

Jet's now programming his Mindstorms himself as well as building all kinds of models that do different things, responding to voice, touch, and the ability to see things move at a certain distance. He's starting to concoct his own programs. It's going to be interesting trying to stay ahead of this curve.
