Chips like Lego. In the past integrated circuits have be assembled
from building blocks which still need to be stiched together, now
someone has realized that if they made the physical circuit masks
shaped in a standardized way (much like the way Lego bricks are) then
you can just cut and paste together new chips from various building

A Lego robotics
competition in 2005. This also includes a link to VEX Robotics
that looks a lot like a grown up version of Meccano. Here's a bit more
about the VEX
system, which is available from RadioShack. The MythBusters TV show
people gave VEX a try, here's the write up
(Slashdot discussion here),
it gives a pretty good introduction to VEX. They also talk quite a bit
about some new components (tracks and ultrasonic range finder) that
will be available in the VEX system soon.
How about making a computer
