I have to say – I love Lego. When I was a kid and now as an adult, it really is the best. Fun, creative and practical, I could/can spend hours constructing new creations, or following plans to make a model. Even the Lego movie was amazing!
And I have just seen some of their new products, bringing together traditional Lego with high-tech robotics!! So. Cool.
And of course, these would be great for Maker spaces.
Lego Mindstorms aimed at young adults can be seen here, including a video demo.
Lego Boost, aimed at kids (7+), comes with a companion app to teach coding. Check it out here.
Even as an adult, these funky little robots look like so much fun to build and play with! I hope I can find an excuse to give these a go soon 🙂
