Product Description

LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT is back and better than ever: new models, more customizable programming and all-new technologies! MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 combines the versatility of the LEGO building system with all-new technologies, an intelligent microcomputer brick and intuitive drag-and-drop programming software. The new 2.0 toolkit features everything you need to create your first robot in 30 minutes and then thousands of other robotics inventions that do what you want!

To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen by combining the Danish words Leg Got that means play well and later realized that the word LEGO in Latin translates to I put together. The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children around the world, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. Most historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO innovation continues to this day with product lines like DUPLO that was created in 1969 for smaller hands and still thrives. Movie tie-ins, such as LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Indiana Jones Adventures and LEGO SpongeBob are some of the most popular sets. The Sci-Fi LEGO Bionicle sets have a huge following but the number one selling LEGO set of all time is The LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Invention System. Over 1 million of these sets were sold around the world. In 2009 LEGO introduces the next generation LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0! LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!

Features

  • Set Contains 619 Pieces.
  • The intelligent NXT LEGO brick features 32-bit microprocessor, a large matrix display, 4 input and 3 output ports, and Bluetooth and USB communication link
  • Four sensors: Ultrasonic Sensor, 2 Touch Sensors and the all-new Color Sensor
  • Easy-to-use software (PC and Mac) with icon-based drag-and-drop programming and 16 fun building and programming challenges
  • Building instructions for 4 new amazing robots

We purchased the NXT for our son's birthday last year after he learned about them in his robotics club. It has been the one thing that has kept his interest and imagination going a year later. He has spent hours upon hours creating, building, and programming, been involved in several NXT team competitions, and attended public speaking events where he demonstrated his creations.
NXTs are very easy to work with, the program is easy to learn, and the possibilities are endless. My son is still as excited about playing with it a year later, and he's still learning building and programming skills.
Being LEGO, pieces from other LEGO kits can be used with the NXT for expanded building potential (the 600+ pieces that come with the kit are plenty to build any published design.) Hundreds of robot designs are available on the included software, in different after-market books, and online, but the NXT also fosters a child's own creativity for building basic to extremely complex one-of-a-kind robots. It's even fun for parents!
The phone support team was easy to work with when we encountered an issue, and they happily helped us resolve our problem, even though it took nearly 20 minutes to figure out. We highly recommend the LEGO Mindstorms NXT product.

This set is actually pretty good. You get over 600 elements, a variety of beams and a few gears. I have built all four models over the span of three months, and I would say that the Color Sorter is by far the best. Once you first get the set, there is a starter model your supposed to build, which is actually the base for the Shooterbot. Not every element is used in the sets. The reason why I prefer the Color Sorter the best is because every other robot involves walikg around, and because of the abundance of wires, the robot tends to interfere with the wires, which is a HUGE problem. The motors stop rotating once it gets stuck and messes up the entire process. Pros: You get the exclusive color sensor Three motors Two touch sensors Many hard to find elements Cons: WAY too many wires. It would be nice if there was a built in reciever and battery inside the sensor and motors. If LEGO can make that possible, I would give all three five stars. There is very little memory inside the intelligent brick, so you can only store two to four different files at the same time. I was hoping you could store at least ten. Somewhat hard and time consuming to program Overall, I would not recomend you spending $280 on this set unless you would put the intellegent brick for good use besides this set.

Amazing

By USLEGO98

from Tallahassee

Comments about LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (8547):

A great use of time in my opinion, I went to a camp at FSU for five days building NXT robots from 9 am to 4 pm and i was blown away by all the possibilities of these seemingly simple lego pieces. I would recomend this to any good programmer or friend, it is a little pricy. I am still waiting for one in stock (for a very good reason) and i hope to get my own very soon.

Bluetooth has issues

By BotBob

from Green Bay

Comments about LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (8547):

Bluetooth does not work. Lego has recommendation on their website about getting the Bluetooth to work, but it still does not connect. I got it to connect once and never again. Programming the NXT with a cable is annoying. Considering how easy it is to connect a $35 Bluetooth speaker to any device I think this in unacceptable for Lego to not have this working perfect. (Yes, I did update the f/w and follow all the online support tips for Bluetooth including deleting the contacts and trying again).

Comments about LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (8547):

This is the one thing my son really REALLY wanted for Christmas, but we had to tell him we couldn't afford it. :( Luckily, a very generous uncle bought it for him! Son has had fun building the Lego aspect of several different configurations from the Mindstorm instructions, but at a month after Christmas now, he still has yet to have even one function properly as a robot. He's been great about dealing with the frustration... until today when he finally burst out in tears. Maybe 8-1/2 is too young for the programming, or maybe the instructions aren't clear enough? If he could just get ONE thing to work. But so far, none. We are all disappointed, especially given the hype and the pricetag. Can't bear to tell uncle.

Verified Buyer

Comments about LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (8547):

Hi There,
The product itself is grate, but:
1. The box was in very bad shape. Probabaly opend before by other customer...and it was a present therfore I was so embarrassed.
2. We miss two very important parts: the rubber chain of the truck.
Already sent request to LEGO to send it to me and they promissed they will.
I doubt I will use Toys R' us online again.

Regards,
Dov Hobot

Best Buy Ever

By NXTmaster

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (8547):

This was the best set ever to be got. pros: Very easy programming, lots of pieces to work with, nice online community, cons: there is no backlight to the display on the NXT, it is a little overpriced (like it should cost 150$ not 400$), in the alpha rex model the arm mover thingy comes off easy, besides all that it is really worth all the money you put into it.

Love it.

By Shallowhop

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (8547):

I bought this about a year ago after seeing a friend's. I've had no problems with it so far, but one thing I would like is a remote control.(which is coming in the new EV3) The programming is easy to learn and I've already built plenty of custom programs. Conclusion: I love it and plan on buying the EV3 when it comes out.

Best Present EVER!

By MythBuster03

Comments about LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (8547):

I have always wanted a robot to do what I want it to do. I also have a subscription to LEGO® Club. Every magazine I have received had the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT 2.0 in it, and I have always wanted the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT 2.0, ever since I first saw it! I'd rate it a 1,000,000,000 out of 5!

Infinite Possibilities!

By BrickStormer

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 (8547):

Wow! LEGO has taken a new step! We had a class in scool that taught us to program and build robots with NXT 1.0, and I was one of the students who ecceled. We got to go to an engineering company for a weekend program with these robots also. Now that i had experience, the NXT was a must-have christmas present! It's a great idea to have the robots be progrmmabl with such simple programmig! Though the programs can get more advancd at times, you can always start with the basics. My advice is, LET YOUR IMAGINATION FLY! The only thing that I don't like is that the extra sensors are way to expensive. One senso can cost way more than another full lego set of similar value. It would also be great if the brick could hold at least one more servo motor. It would be good for creating more advanced robots Overall: Great kit!
