At Last! Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0

After 3 years, Lego has announced that it will finally update its Lego Mindstorms. NXT 2.0 is aimed at 10 - 14 year old boys, but we know better. New to the kit is a sensor that the robot uses to determine colors before acting on the information.

With 619 pieces, builders can make Alpha Rex (robot,) Robocator (crocodile,) Shooter bot (pictured) and Color Sorter. This time around there will be 10 sets of instructions included in the software. Although NXT 2.0 will cost nearly $300.00 when it comes out later this year, don't be surprised if there is a price reduction in the current kit.
