I love stories like this- things commonly thought of only as toys put to work in the real world.  Personally, I’ve always found Mindstorms really cool, and seeing them used to perform delicate labwork is awesome.  It just goes to show how much potential there is in a building kit like LEGO, and adding in the robotics aspect makes me wonder what these things will be used for next.

Thanks to Susan for sending me this article!
