I was asked what robotics meant to me. This was my answer:
Many people consider robotics to be a field in engineering. Others consider it to be a hobby. I think of it as a game. A game which you not only play, but also create and refine as you go along. Your robot is your player and the task for it to accomplish is the game level. As you improvise on your robot to accomplish bigger and more advanced tasks, you gain experience and knowledge. The game never stops. It only pauses. The levels are unlimited, and so is the fun!
