LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2

LEGO today updated its Mindstorms robot kit with the NXT 2.0 version. The update to the construction set is targeted at LEGO's core audience instead of solely at hobbyists and will come in a set that lets children build four ready-made robots. More advanced users, however, also get a new feature that lets the robot detect color through its camera and perform a user-programmable action based on the presence of that color in the scene.

The NXT 2.0 edition still allows programming from a Mac OS X system or Windows PC but adds the ability to send up to 10 instructions to the robot's core rather than two. Details of an American launch aren't available, though the new Mindstorms pack will be available in a 619-piece version for the UK later this year for 200 ($286). [via Pocket-lint]
