The hosts of Girls Gone Geek, a weekly half-hour audio podcast on technology with a female point of view, have named the 2007 Ultimate Holiday Gadget Gifts for Women and Girls; in the Penny Pinchers category (which means 250 $ and below - so you still are complaining on the price of a NXT kit? ;-) ) , you will find the NXT kit as one amongst five gadgets (including indispensable things like a calories burner watch, a Mickey Mouse mp3 player and an Espresso Machine):
"The Lego Mindstorm NXT robot kit is a great gift for aspiring engineers or robot fanatics. It is well worth the $250 price tag because it can be built in an infinite number of forms and is definitely NOT a toy that is used for a month and then gets stuffed away to collect dust."So if you still are undecided what to buy your wife or/and your daughter(s) for Christmas - we have it from female authorities now that the NXT is the ultimate replacement for boring perfumes or dolls.
