Comment: AND FURTHERMORE... (Score 2) 25

If any of these kiddie code-camp dingbats were serious about getting kids interested in coding, they'd see about getting Big Trak re-resurrected. They had a modern version available for about five minutes around 2009. Add a WIFI interface to the the thing and Bob's your uncle.
While they're at it, make available add-on modules for a camera(s), and a freakin' lazor, maybe a robot claw.
