A perfect lead-in for something I just discovered last night.
Robots that you build and program and are 100% autonomous.
They also do battle until only one remains functioning.
100% safe 'cause it's in cyberspace.  ;-)


Looks like a very fun and addicting way to get into robot
battle for very little cost.  I have (so far) resisted the
urge to download the demo since I know I'll get sucked into
the black hole of it all and will never be seen again.  :-)
