Looks like the beginnings of a 21st century Flea Circus effect!

It would be great until they come out with the self-assembling Legos........which defeats the purpose of kids creating and building something themselves.

Interesting technology but I can't really see a use for it.

I agree George. In it's current form it is useless for magic. BUT in a few years when it is smaller, makes less noise, etc. it may become a useful component of an effect.

Any time an inanimate object appears to move on its own with no obvious source of power, I think there is potential for a PK effect.

Could be good for seance, but it needs to be silent in operation.

Much better than Little Man.

I can imagine some great magical effects using these.

If you get a squeaker, you can mask the noise.
