How's this for amazing play technology?

You build a robot with an EVC brick inside (the heart). Connect it to your computer or smart device and program it to do stuff.

The robots you make will do things you never thought possible. They walk, talk, move, and do whatever you want them to do.

There are three options for use of Mindstorms EV3:
  • Use the programmable brick and enclosed remote control for ready-made missions.
  • Use the intuitive Mindstorms software program (PC and Mac) included, featuring drag-and-drop icons.
  • Download the free app and command your robot using your smart device - WiFi, bluetooth or smartphone! (LEGO Mindstorms EV3 hooks to both Apple -iOS and Android devices.)

    Follow the step-by-step 3D building instructions to create five fantastic futuristic robots and bring them to life. Then create 15 other robots with the free instructions for download from the LEGO website.

    Another thing that's great about the assembly process? Mindstorms EV3 is the first LEGO playset with 3D building instructions! You can zoom in and rotate each step in the building process, making it easier to assemble even the most sophisticated robot.

      Great Learning Gift
      Dec 27, 2016

      I purchased this for my boys ages 10, 9 and 6. The 10 year old immediately took all the pieces out and started putting it together. He has a lot of Lego experience and some robotic experience. I also pointed him to http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/content/lego/ev3/preview/ and suggested he go through some of the content there. He did get stuck a couple of times and wanted my help, but I encourage him to go back and try it again, and he was able to figure out hot to make it work. The 10 year old they could show the 9 year old what he had learned. Even the 6 year old like to control the robot with the remote. We did manage to run down the 6 AA batteries it took in just one day. So be prepared with both AAA and AA batteries. Right now this is one of the most played with toys, so we will see if it continues to entertain and educate them.

      This is a fun learning toy as you get to build many different model of robots. Right out of the box, you can build the four robots, but if you look online you will be able to find many different robots to build. Some are advanced that requires real programming so I am looking forward to helping my son learn to code and learning to design different machines.

      Is in Lego League and always wanted Robot to practice programming on his own - very excited and works on it whenever he has homework done.

      This gift was purchased for my 9yoa daughter for getting straight A's on her report cards. And also because I recently (May 2014) found an old Lego Mindstorms RCX robotics set, complete with cables and CD-ROMs. Trying to get the old set up and running on a rainy Saturday afternoon was a DISASTER! I would have thought a decade would be trivial for Legos, but Microsoft Windows 7 runs on a different chip set then Windows 98 did. The cables required a 15 pin port, not a USB which my laptop did not have. Drivers were not available online. Long story short -- my daughter went to bed with a headache when her firework excitement fizzled. So I went to Fat Brain Toys to purchase the new Lego Mindstorms EV3 and waited for the last day of school. When we opened it up, this time all fireworks, no fizzle. Within the hour we had constructed the TRACK3R robot, and had it executing autonomous commands. Typical Lego instructions: wordless picture, step by step, find the parts, snap them together. Enjoy the construction satisfaction. Please bear the above in mind if you are purchasing this product ten years from now in 2025 (like how the robots have "l33t" speak names). Make sure of the hardware/software compatibility. Such as, I now knew: - You'll want to pre-load the software to your laptop from the wesbite as no CD-ROM is provided - You'll want to pre-load the EV3 to your smartphone so you can instantly control the brick & robot remotely (although an IR control is provided) - You'll want to pre-purchase your AA and AAA batteries. - You'll want to pre-purchase some bins for holding parts, as all the pieces are packaged in plastic bags, which after opening are not suitable for returning to the box for storage.
