New Lego Mindstorms EV3 Robotics Platform Coming Soon!
It’s the 15th anniversary of Lego Mindstorms, a Lego robotics system that gives children the ability to build and program their own cool Lego robots! And what better way to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Lego Mindstorms than to release a brand new Lego Mindstorms robotics platform? Well that platform is the cool, new Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics kit!
The new Lego Mindstorms EV3 system features the new EV3 Intelligent Brick, which is stronger, faster, and has more memory and a larger processor than the Lego Mindstorms NXT Intelligence Brick from the previous Lego Mindstorms platform, NXT 2.0. The new EV3 Intelligent Brick also features expanded on-brick programming, a USB port, an SD expansion port, and full iOS and Android compatibility, making room for even more robot-building possibilities! The new EV3 platform is more accessible and features a new infrared sensor, allowing for more control and personality for the robots you build!
When launched, the Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics kit will include building instructions for 17 cool-looking, fun, and interactive robots you can build, including “Everstorm”, a cool humanoid robot that shoots balls as it walks; “Spiker”, a scorpion-like robot that searches for an infrared beacon “bug”, and a slithering, shaking robotic serpent called “Reptar” that might just strike at you! There is also a series of “modular builds”, which can be built in a short time and added onto with other parts so kids can begin playing and programming within minutes!
The product of 3 years of development, the Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics kit will be released in the second half of 2013, for the suggested retail price of $349.99 USD. And for the first time, this fun, new Lego Mindstorms product will be available in native language editions for Russia, China, and Korea. You can visit the Lego Mindstorms website at http://mindstorms.lego.com/en-us/Default.aspx for more information. We’ll make sure to put this cool new Lego Mindstorms robotics kit on this website as soon as possible, so be on the lookout for the Lego Mindstorms EV3 here on ToyBrixandBlox.com!
