Can this connect to a kindle fire? 3 Feb 2014
I dont have a kindle fire but as I understand it - it is a cut down android system. If you already have a Fire look in the Google play store for the EV3 apps and see if the Commander App is there. Also the building instructions App. I use both on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 but the building instructions will not work on my Sony Experia Z. Sorry I cannot be of more help.
The software used to program Mindstorms only works on Windows and without access to this graphical programming environment you would not be able to use some of the more complex programming options that are available. Only very basic programs can be created directly on the EV3 brick itself using the small screen and cursor keys on top of the brick. As far as I know the Mindstorms Software does NOT run under WINE on Linux. You may be able to program the brick using the 3rd party software LeJOS but I'm not sure what level of development this is currently at for the EV3 brick.
The product pictures show a box with writings in German. Is the product shipped by Amazon.co.uk in German? 29 Nov 2014
Mine was in English - you download the software on the lego site anyway so language is not an issue. The lego site also has the quick start quide available to download. All the robot instructions are on the opening page of the software. All Lego boxes are multilingual.
Is it possible to use sensors from Lego Mindstorms 9747 Robotics Invention System with the EV3 brick? 13 Dec 2014
Although it was a great set, the Robotics Invention System (RCX) is might be somewhat compatible with the newer Mindstorms. The connectors used are different, so this is the biggest hurdle. Lego did make a Converter Cable for Mindstorms NXT, http://brickset.com/sets/8528-1/Converter-Cables-for-Mindstorms-NXT Now, NXT and EV3 share a very high degree of compatibility. RCX would be compatible with NXT, and if NXT is compatible with EV3, so it should be there. The question is - does the EV3 IDE contain libraries to control and read RCX elements?
