Next Generation LEGO Mindstorms

LEGO is calling for developers to help with testing their next generation LEGO Mindstorms NXT Robots. It looks like the new kits will be priced at $250, but 100 testers can get one at $150 5 months in advance of the August 2006 general release.

I have several of the first generation Mindstorms products, and they are a great introduction to robots and programming, as well as perfect sources of motors and automation supplies for your other LEGO projects. And, since it is LEGO, there is virtually no limit to what can be done.

Serious LEGO enthusiasts should check out LEGO's Digital Designer workshop, it's CAD for LEGOs.

Here is a video of a LEGO Mindstorms Robot playing Pong.
