When I was about 12, which is 30 years ago now they used to have these competitions where nerd dads and their nerd kids would create 'mice' little robots which navigated around a 16x16 maze. It was a race, I think. I thought it was very cool.
 
Well, apparently it's still going on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micromouse[^]
 
There are some impressive videos on YouTube too, the record being about 4 seconds.
 
I still think its very cool. And it lead me to reading extensively about ARM Cortex M processors all last night to see how they've changed since the early days of the Acorn Archimedes computer. Not much apparently, although they have this 'Thumb' instruction set now.
 
I need to win the lottery so I can pack up the day job and become a professional mouse competitor. Anybody else (perhaps those a little more mature) remember these things?
Regards,
Rob Philpott.
