Lego has upgraded their Mindstorm product to more of a human look using technic blocks rather than the standard lego bricks. Also, NXT has a 32-bit command center with a large LCD, USB 2.0 and Bluetooth interfaces that allow robots to walk, talk and interact with their environment. This is not your father’s Mindstorms!
All the sensors are apparently rather slick including a ultrasound distance sensor (how freak’n cool is that?). The Geeks really need to get their hands on one for a review though (Lego: reviewer’s sample?)!
