Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0Budding engineers and robot enthusiasts alike are fans of the LEGO Mindstorm series. In 2009, LEGO introduced Mindstorms NXT 2.0. The NXT 2.0 allows builders to build new robot models with more customization and technology than the NXT 1.0 series.

The “brain” of the Mindstorms NXT 2.0 is the Intelligent microcomputer chip Brick combined with drag and drop software. Instructions are included enabling builders to complete their first robot in 30 minutes. The bags are clearly labeled so that first timers know where to start. If builders get stuck, LEGO has a Mindstorms community on its website where fans can share building plans, post questions and comment on the Mindstorms platform. Members are always willing to assist those new to LEGO Mindstorms.

Once the initial robot is built, builders can create different robots to their specifications. LEGO offers several types of accessories to customize the Mindstorms NXT 2.0 including Bluetooth and a lithium rechargeable battery. One of the best accessories is the Servo Motor that measures speed and distance and relays the information to the Intelligent Brick allowing for precise control.
