I grew loving LEGO. And as a geek, i never had a need for a pitching machine. There’s a part of me which really wishes I had played ball as a kid so I could hit balls in a batting cage, since I can no longer bring myself to go to the driving range (now that I actually have a fat ass, it’s really redundant to play golf as well!)
so this provides some hope for geeks. we can create something as cool, albeit not as romantic.
