Using a microSD card you can use MonoBrick to code it in C#. I had a blast making stuff like automatic doors and cars. Buy it, it's worth it. Don't just buy it by itself though, buy the 31313 LEGO Mindstorms set to really unlock it's potential. Only buy it alone if you want an extra one.

This item is ONLY the EV3 MODULE, and it comes with NOTHING ELSE. No wires, no cord, no power packs, no instructions. It is the EV3 module and nothing else in a plain white cardboard box just large enough to hold it.This is a fine item to buy if you already have EV3 projects and need this module, but it is not a starter kit, you will need to buy a bunch more stuff if you don't have everything else already.
