After all the nasty high-profile hacking happening lately, it’s high time we started training a future generation of noble hackers. Like, let’s get some whiz kids with the smarts to crack the Pentagon’s net code, just with Mother Teresa ethics. Perhaps they can start with iRobot’s Create 2 programmable robot.

At its core, this is a Roomba 600 series vacuum, only now it’s ready for hacking, especially for students in iRobot’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program. It comes with a programming framework, 3D printing files for extra parts, and it’s more than ready for expansion, whether it’s new sensors, a camera, grippy arms, or whatever you can come up with. Pick up the iRobot Create 2 for $200 and get your little nephew to use his skills for good.
