This weekend was a wedding free weekend (well, I had one on Friday) and so Rosa and I went to work making a Makeblock mBot.

I bought this back from my recent trip to Photokina and had been waiting for an opportunity to let Rosa get to grips with this amazing little system.

So, as part of my fascination with documenting my everyday life, I took a few simple snaps with my X100T whilst she got to work building the mBot.

She loves it by the way, and has named our new robot “Mungo” after one of her best friends.

If your kids are into building things, engineering or just, well, having fun, then I reckon the Makeblock mBot is a great gadget.

Next stage is to plug it into the PC and start programming it.
