Mr. Roboto

    Attention all tech geeks: Today in New Jersey, the Ocean County Tech Prep Consortium is hosting a robotics competition.

    First, naturally, a robot race. Built of Legos and programmed with computers, robots will follow a course, pick up an object and then return it. Fastest automaton wins.

    Then, a design competition. Teams will have 90 minutes to design, build, and program a robotics device to accomplish a yet-to-be-announced task.

    Definitely geeky.

    We definitely like it.
