Lego Mindstorms has come a long way since its original 1994 incarnation. Lego's third generation EV3 robotics kit ($350), introduced at this year's CES, has been modernized for mobile programming, with a wireless Bluetooth connectivity and an integrated smartphone app, and is compatible with Lego's older NXT 2.0 kits. The new EV3, a small computer that fits in the palm of your hand, has 16MB of memory and 64MB of storage, and the kit includes a motor, an infrared "seeker," and a touch sens...

For who loves graphical programming languages, like NXT-G, I signal an interesting growing project: CATROID. CATROID, brother of Google App Inventor, takes its steps from MIT-developed SCRATCH programming language, and implements some blocks to control the NXT brick via Bluetooth!
It is still a bit limited, but it's the first on-phone graphical programming language for the NXT. Even the textual programmers should be quite excited.
