Lego Mindstorms

One of the simplest and most effective rapid design and prototyping tools is Lego, still used by hardware developers in some of the world’s most high-tech institutions such as MIT.

At The Making Rooms we have Lego Mindstorms, developed for designing and building programmable Lego robots that can sense the world around them and react to stimuli.

The kit has a range of sensors including colour, touch and infrared and can be programmed using a simple graphical programming language to great effect.

This is great for introducing young people to sensors, robotics and programming.
