LEGO.com has launched MINDSTORMS 51515 Robot Inventor today, the new generation of the LEGO Group’s robotics and coding theme. It’s one of those sets though that is better seen in motion rather than in still images, so the LEGO Group has released a number of videos that showcase the product’s functions.
Fans in the UK can win the set with Brick Fanatics! There are three copies up for grabs in the MINDSTORMS competition.
The 949 piece set is priced at £329.99 in the UK and $359.99 in the US.
“In developing the product, we looked back at what has made MINDSTORMS great for all these years. Why do kids and adults love the product and continue to build and code amazing creations? What had previous MINDSTORMS generations and products done well, and where could we improve and enhance the experience? Very quickly in our journey we settled on two things that were really important. One was robotics and the other was open creativity,” said Senior Design Manager Dan Meehan when unveiling the set.
