Robotics Merit Badge Gets Real: Geeks Unite!
Officials are expecting over 10,000 Scouts to earn the badge in the next year, and the badge will require them to "design and build a robot while learning about robot movement, sensors and programming." Even video game controllers can be considered Robotics, which leads to us thinking that DIY/hacking is probably a great way to get this badge. You know things are going the way of the nerd once the Boy Scouts devote a merit badge to it. Power to the hackers!
