    The NXT

    Everyone fantasises about building and controlling their very own super-advanced robots. Or is that just us? The problem is homemade robots usually malfunction, before turning on their creators and going on homicidal rampages. At least they do in the movies. What’s more, you need to be really brainy to build one. Or do you?

    Well no, not if you use the all-new LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0. This jaw-droppingly advanced robotic construction system allows you to build and program your very own fully-functional computerised robots. No degree in electro-mechanics required!

    Impressed? You should be because LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 has been blowing away hard-to-impress tech journos across the globe. And that’s hardly surprising as it renders most commercially-available DIY robot systems obsolete.

    At the heart of this ingenious concept is the NXT - an über-intelligent, USB-friendly, computer-controlled ‘brick’ that acts as your robot’s brain. We’re talking interactive servo motors, built-in rotation sensors, ultrasonic sensors, touch sensors and a sensor that can detect different colours and light intensities. It even works as a mood lamp. Incredible!

    Featuring a 32-bit microprocessor, LCD display, loudspeaker and control panel, this ultra-sophisticated block brings your creations to life, and offers countless design/functionality permutations. You can even control your robots using your computer or mobile phone (via Bluetooth). Thanks to a handy quick-start guide, idiot-proof software and step-by-step building instructions, you can create four different robots that will obey your every command. And to think we used to be impressed by schoolmates who could spell rude words with LEGO bricks. But what about those robots?

    Alpha Rex

    First up, meet Shooterbot, a moving vehicle robot that can guard your room and shoot balls at intruders. 
Next up, there’s Robogator, a fearsome robot that moves like (you guessed it) an alligator. It even snaps at anyone who comes too near. Cripes! 
Colour Sorter is a robotic sorting machine that can arrange different coloured objects before firing them via its accurate catapult.

    Finally, Alpha Rex is the ultimate robot: a super advanced humanoid with multiple functions, it can walk, talk, avoid objects and even dance. Amazing!

    The LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 construction system is so technologically advanced we could sit here all day listing its gobsmackingly impressive features. But we won’t because we’re busy constructing our own masterpiece: Fireboxbot, a motion sensitive automaton that looks like General Grievous but pours tea whenever we click our fingers. No really!

    Snap, snap!

    In fact we’ll give him a go right now…*click*… no Fireboxbot…don’t throw the tea in his face…no, that powerclaw’s not designed to throttle the boss…no, don’t do th…Aargh!
