Lego is launching a new 949-piece set that allows you to build five different robots (Blast, Charlie, Tricky, Gelo, and a modular vehicle). The largest robot, Blast, stands 36cm tall. A free app (available for Windows 10, macOS, iOS and Android) contains building and coding instructions for each of these robots. Robot Inventor uses drag-and-drop coding language based on Scratch, but seasoned developers can also use Python. The kit will be available this fall for USD360 (CAD490), which is not cheap, but you can also buy each robot individually for USD72 (CAD98). Mindstorms Robot Inventor is targeted at children 10 years and up. We personally know lots of “and up” children :-)

Lego, “New Lego® Mindstorms® Robot Inventor lets creators build and bring to life anything they can imagine.”

The Verge, Jon Porter, “Lego’s new Mindstorms kit lets kids build their own walking, talking robots.”
