Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LEGO Mindstorms 31313: EV3 (Toy)
With almost endless things to create with mindstorms sets, its worth noting that additional sensors are available to buy. These include the gyro and ultrasonic EV3 sensors (new designs these with improved functionality) that you may think are only available as part of an educational set. Ultrasonic sensor 'eyes' light to show activity. These sensors give even more possibilities of things to do. Get one more medium servo to add to your ev3 brick too. Note the EV3 servos have improved mounting options now.
Note that the EV3 redesigned sensors all have a cross mounting point in the middle of the three hole arrangement provided, some sensors have two mounts on the rear also.
Note bluetooth 2.1 is built into the brick so iOS app or Android app can be used as a control, or there is a IR remote control included in the box.
Wifi control over internet is apparently available, but an additional wifi adapter is needed, a netgear item to use in the usb port I understand. Not sure if only one type of wifi adapter is guaranteed to work with the EV3 brick or not, cant find any specifics as yet.
Brick has 4 ports, only touch sensors can be multiplied into one port, not other sensors. To get more ports you must daisy chain more EV3 bricks together......too expensive. Dont know it nxt bricks can be used for this purpose.
Nice App gives animated assembly instructions for 5 main robots on the box, but not the others that users have done and feature on the lego website.
