lego robotIn an ongoing effort to rid the world of productive robots, three college students have crafted a Legobot that can beat the first level of Super Mario Bros.  Using Legos and a basic circuit board, Matt Sesno, Ben Rowe, and Tim Dooley built a robot made of Legos that is capable of playing Super Mario Bros., the first Mario-based platform game for the NES, and even beating the first level.  Why?  Apparently (unless they're lying to us), there is a Lego Robot Talent Show every year, and they were looking for an entry.  After all, there's a huge need right now for videogame-playing robots made of Legos.
