We're still racing to pack up everything for the FIRST Robotics Championship this Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Atlanta. LEGO has me listed as a speaker, in conjunction with the release of a brand new robotics platform. The title is "Taking LEGO MINDSTORMS to the Sky - The LEGO Autopilot' - by Chris Anderson". But that can't be the original LEGO autopilot, which is now more than a year old. So it must be something new!

The video above is a hint (sorry about the vague tease!), but I'll be revealing full details on Thursday.

In the meantime, if you're wondering how you transport a UAV across the country, the answer is: hard golf case via FedEx! Loads of room and very tough.

Here's what it looked like, before I wrapped everything in bubblewrap

Hey Chris,
You'll have to say Hi to my teammates. They're team 201 they'll be competing in the FIRST Tech Challenge. They'll be listening intently as you introduce the new platform I'm sure.

Shaping up to be another great talk ;-) Will you/someone be able to record/post it?

Great idea using the hard golf case!
