Buy Lego Spybotics

Updated on March 16, 2011

Lego Spybotics is a sub-theme of Lego Mindstorms where you build robots using Lego Technics pieces in order to run and complete missions The Spybots that you build 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.

Each Spybot is designed to be strong in only one or two of the categories of speed, strength, and agility. That means that the user will have to learn how to capitalize on the vehicles strengths in a competition with other Spybotics vehicles.

There are 10 preset missions included in the spybotics software that can be made easier or harder. There are 5 missions intended as 1 player missions:

  • Laser Maze
  • Command Override
  • Gamma Overload
  • Energy Crisis
  • X-Factor

The other 5 missions are designed for two players (two Spybots):

  • The Mole
  • Critical Countdown
  • Robot Rescue
  • Face-Off
  • Circuit Breaker

In addition to these pre-set missions, players can select "Special Operations" which allows them to create their own missions based on a set of nine templates.
