    Total awesomeness! A fifty-dollar-retail robot is quite an achievement for anyone, big corps included. Now if it were only Arduino-based…

    Congratulations Brennon! Excellent interview, you express yourself so well. Good luck with the robot shop. When you are ready to hire employees, send me an application.

    Congrats, Brennon
    Funny you mentioned FB … my Wall turned into something mindless I didn’t like and got very upset about … so I left FB. Nothing beats a good book, a movie, listening to music … creating, but this I leave to others :)
    Good luck to you

    It is very refreshing to see a kid this young making a difference and not running the streets getting into trouble! If he continues, he should really go far in life! way to go kid!!

    I like how rappers and musicians were in separate categories :)

    But anyways, this is some really amazing stuff he’s doing. Most things I didn’t start doing at least until I got to high school.

    I like the kid.

    Great kid… Hope he does well. In a surprising turn, I just posted him on FB. Though I do agree it’s a colossal waste of time for many young people.
