The future of building blocks

I sometimes get lost in the huge amount of imagination and possibility that is displayed through TED talks and videos online. I cam across one from the company littleBits, and thought that this is something I can see being used within the classroom in the future.

The blocks are a modern take on Lego which incorporate the use of magnets and electrical parts. The blocks can be joined in many different, easy ways. You are able to create fantastic things, like a switch powered light, without knowing the intricacies of wiring or circuits.

Watch the TED video and let me know what you think. I already know how much I want to play with these blocks and can just imagine the activities based around them.
