justice4all writes "If it means shorter lines at the supermarket, a quarter of Germans would be happy to have a chip implanted under their skin. The head of Germany's main IT trade body told the audience at the opening ceremony of the CeBIT technology exhibition that one in four of his countrymen are happy to have a microchip inserted for ID purposes."

The 200-in-One kits I had was pretty impressive, I agree, and very well organized. All the components were labeled by their actual names and values, with schematic diagram equivalents next to them. The spring terminals for connections also worked pretty well. About the only thing that really made it "kid" was the guide in the book (which I still have, it's a good electronics primer) which took the form of a talking 200-in-one kit.
