Posted on June 22, 2017
LEGO introduced its new LEGO Boost set at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show. The set combines robotic sensors with LEGO bricks and introduces coding concepts to young children. The set comes with building instructions for five models. These include the robot pictured above (Vernie) as well as a robotic cat named Frankie, a M.T.R. 4 robotic vehicle, an Auto Builder and the Guitar 4000.
The set has over 840 pieces. It also includes a LEGO move hub, interactive motor and a color and distance sensor. The set also includes a playmat and a wall poster. It is recommended for ages 7 to 12.
Engadget shows how the programming modules work and enables kids to control and program their robots through a LEGO Boost App. The app provides an icon-based coding interface. The set will retail for $160 and is available for pre-order from Amazon.com. It is expected to ship on August 1st. Take a look:
