5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST So Called "Toy" EVER!
...this was worth every single penny and MORE! It is a 700+ set, with two motors, a light sensor and two touch sensors. YOU make your own robot that reacts to light and touch. You even use a VERY easy to use, but powerful program to program your robot with an infra - red beam.
There are loads of accessories for this "toy" as well. You can buy remote...

2.0 out of 5 stars Joke
For 2000 quid you would expect a little more than 5 elements to control, you can hardly do a lot with that without buying more sensors and motors. Come on Lego, get real

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST So Called "Toy" EVER!, 21 Dec 2001
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Mindstorms 3804: Robotic Invention System 2.0 (Toy)
...this was worth every single penny and MORE! It is a 700+ set, with two motors, a light sensor and two touch sensors. YOU make your own robot that reacts to light and touch. You even use a VERY easy to use, but powerful program to program your robot with an infra - red beam.
There are loads of accessories for this "toy" as well. You can buy remote controls, rotation sensors(this lets you build a scanner), Lights, temperature sensors, capacitators, solar panels, fibre optic cables and the AMAZING lego cam (see vision command.
So far I have built a robot that sees a coin, drops it into a basket and it goes in in under a second, a cable car, a security card system, a light gun, where you pull the trigger, it beeps, you reload after ten shots, and you get shot at with a torch. AND MORE.
BUY THIS TOY, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT, I PROMISE!!!!!!
THE KEY PART TO THIS IS THE RCX. it is a chip, covered in lego pieces, developed by a group called MIT, you can turn it on/off, view the sensor readings, change the program (it holds five at a time) and download programs to it.
If you are under 8, buy the younger version (robotics discovery set) or the star wars kits, where you build your own star wars droids. If not, but the robotics invention system, and if you handle it well, buy the ULTIMATE ACCESSORIES KIT, which has an extra touch sensor, a light, a rotation sensorand a remote, later buy VISION COMMAND, so it can respond to what it sees, if all is well, but Exploration mars, where you simulate the NASA mars missions and control your robot from the PC...
BUY IT, OR A MISERABLE LIFE LIES AHEAD OF YOU!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindstorn your brain, 29 Nov 2001

= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Mindstorms 3804: Robotic Invention System 2.0 (Toy)
The Lego Mindstorm kit is a really easy way to get into the world of building robots. All young kids love to play with Lego, and I for one grew up having loads of fun with the tiny block.

Lego has come a long way since then and they have many excellent product available that strech the imagination fay beyond building a simple house.

The mindstorms kit brings together the use of lego with the technilogical advances of the PC. Using was is essentually a scaled down computer (that is probably more powerful than the old ZX Spectrun) you can build a fantastic looking robot and then bring it to life.

The beauty of this product is that throught the software young children can really feel like they have created and then programmed a seemingly complicated device, and this can give a small developing mind a real sense of acievement.

Although the age of this product is aimed at 12 years and above, an 10 year old with a knowledge of computers and the help of a parent (they will enjoy it just as much) can have hours of fun together with this.

I highly recoment this product for anyone with an ambition to take their computer that one stage further.

This review is from: LEGO Mindstorms 3804: Robotic Invention System 2.0 (Toy)
This is a great toy, and it is good value for money. You get plenty of building equipment, and the RCX programmable brick is very easy to use. The completed robots look good and are fun to play with. My suggested age group is 11 and up.

This review is from: LEGO Mindstorms 3804: Robotic Invention System 2.0 (Toy)
Lego Mindstorms is the best series from Lego ever.
When the first came out (1.0) it was sold faster then neirly enything else and now that 2.0 has come out it is doing even better, and the 2.0 is education at the same time as fun and you can build on it and make it even more educational and fun so I recomend it highly.
