Mindstorm EV3

Post by Octan on 1/7/2013, 9:03 pm

At CES (Las Vegas) LEGO announced their next generation of the Mindstorm system. LEGO's Mindstorm is never anything but top notch, and used for years after in many schools along with FLL (first LEGO league). This one is certainly up to modern standards. It runs a Linux biased OS (I am guessing ARCH biased), an SD slot, and can be programmed from Linux or IOS smartphones or tablets. It is packed with a CAD instruction program developed with Autodesk, the makers of software such as Maya and Inventor. It appears to be C# and Java ready right out of the box, and comes with an infrared sensor which more or less makes this as powerful as something like an arduino or a Raspberry Pi for automation.

I have to say, compared to some of the other LEGO sets that are coming out now, this looks AMAZING! (If you're as nerdy as me)

Do you know when it's coming out?
