Buy Lego Mindstorms

Updated on March 17, 2011

Lego Mindstorms is a theme which utilises a combination of Technics and System pieces and has been running continously from 1998 to the current day. Mindstorms are controlled by a special master brick to which motors or other sensors can be attached. This master brick can be programmed using a computer to take inputs from the sensors, interpret and then act on the data with the motors or other output devices like LEGO lamps which allows for the creation of wireless lego robots. These Sensors can be things like, thermometers, light sensors, sound sensors, touch sensors, and Ultrasonic sensors. This truly expands the lego universe.

Both Kids and Adults are equally fascinated by the ingenuity and variety of models that are available in the Mindstorm range.
