I recently came to know about Jaimie Mantzel. Not only does he live all by himself in a house he built out in the wilderness, he's also building a kick ass robot in the process. The house is entirely built out of materials he's scavenged, has no connections to the outside world and generates electricity from solar power. If building your house like this isn't Minecraft (+ FTB?) I don't know what is

He's also the inventor of Combat Creatures which seem to be quite fun toys.

Very interesting. Wish he knew how to make decent websites though.

That kind of stuff interests me. I want to build a Lord of The Rings hobbit home in my backyard one day. It should be pretty easy to dig it out, and then I can work on my woodcrafting skills when I make the round doors and ornate flooring. Maybe I will start saving Styrofoam like this guy is doing.

I'm thinking that they can be a very ineresting base plate to build more advanced robots on, just combine it with a raspberry pi

I suspect you would need to do some major hackingto modify them to be usable with a rasberry pi, afterall they are just a remote controlled vehicle.

though, this idea combined with robot wars muhahahahahaha
