Arrested For Playing With LEGO Mindstorms
Nicolas Nova, publisher of the ‘pasta and vinegar’ blog, reports that one of his friends was actually arrested yesterday on a train in Germany. His ‘crime’? Playing with LEGO Mindstorms. Apparently the authorities weren’t familiar with Mindstorms and thought he was trying to build a bomb. In the end, he had to pay a fine and leave his LEGO robotic system with the cops. Bummer.
