If you are a novice robot builder, I would definitely recommend getting this set. If you want to make more advanced robots with bigger programs and more options, I'd recommend getting the EV3. A lot of (third party) stuff is available for the EV3, which allow for a ton of options.
This is not another Lego set. This is the best Lego set EVER. It enables your child to design robotic machines that work (while learning the first year curriculum in computer science and engineering), even if your child is as young as nine. It's not about building the designs included. It's the total freedom to materialise any mechanical logically controlled idea. Enables your child to take a gaming remote control, and control a car they designed and built them self. (unlike the "predecessors" Mindstorms 31313, and Boost, the Scratch language and editor are intuitive for kids (as in "explain me like i'm 5")). Lego deserve the ultimate praise and accolades for designing this ultimate accessible product. Thank you LEGO!
I enjoyed building the robots and running the pre-written samples but it's when I wanted to try out my own ideas and code that lets down this set, which is a shame and could be easily fixed I think.
The set may not be perfect, and may not be everything LEGO Mindstorms fans hoped it would be. But it is fun, and users new to the platform are sure to enjoy it, while old hands can find some silver linings along with some new things to experience.
I'm not going to attempt to review the whole thing in one go so, in this, the first of a series of articles, I'll take a look at what's in the box.
Well, I'm certainly impressed with what LEGO have released here. Compared to the EV3, the 51515 (RI5?) is definitely easier to use and get working on straight away. The provided robots are fun and demonstrate many ways to use the motors and sensors. They also made interesting characters that are fun to interact with, and keep kids' interest.
