Must be nice to have enough money to throw an iPad into something like this, on a whim.

/Dude is smart.

I didn't have one of those but my dad built a huge model rail road with several towns and stations, he then wrote a program on the C= 64 that would come up with a schedule of what locomotive to run, what cars to add to the train then where to drop cars off at what town and swap out at what stations.  It was pretty fun.

True my dad would have built something this awesome, Promised to give it to me and sold it to buy rc airplane parts before I got the chance to pick it up.

Didn't someone try to twist this into being child abuse or something last time it was greened? I remember a very negative reception last time..

That's great, but I think passing on those physical attributes of mine that his mother found so persuasive will, in the end, please my son in the long run.

My dad is a superhero, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Isn't this a repeat?
I seem to remember this same thing a few years ago.
Anyhow, not really all that impressive.  It's cool and all, but lots of parents do that kind of stuff.

My dad built me a sand rail with a 1600cc VW engine in it when I was 10.  Tearing around the farm in a dune buggy tops some desk with blinky lights.

Oh yeah? This dad built his kids a Mad Cat tree house.

That's actually more awesome than the link.

My father did the same but we had a switchboard for the track switches. Small set, on a 4X8 table.Then Mom decided she didn't like it anymore and took it apart with scissors and a claw hammer while we were on a camping trip. Surprised she didn't electrocute herself now that I think of it.
