Want to Build a Robot? Start with LEGO

With the new free EV3 Programmer App, for tablets and PCs/MACs, LEGO Mindstorms gives a future robot builder the opportunity to not only build a robot but also to learn to program. The app includes the building instructions, programming missions and the programming tool for a full EV3 experience.

By purchasing the 31313 LEGO Mindstorms EV3 set, you will find the building instructions for 17 awesome LEGO robotic designs: a humanoid robot, a race truck, a shooting scorpion, a fork lift, a walking dinosaur, etc.. The set is inclusive: Each robot comes complete with its own unique features and a program that controls the robot’s behavior!

By combining LEGO elements with a programmable brick, motors and sensors you can create robotic creatures that talk, walk, think, grab and many other functions. To control your robot, use either a remote control or the Commander App.
