Today we had the welcome party for our new undergraduate students. We set up some video games to play and this year we also had a new toy. We had a full size, eight car, computer controlled Scalectrix racing car setup. This allowed up to six players to race on the twin tracks, changing lanes and fighting to get the fastest lap times. The set was actually purchased for use in a digital interfacing component to one of the embedded development modules that we teach, but it also made for great fun.
