Nxt 2.0 Projects
Newest Version. The ‘NXT’ generation of buildable, programmable robots is here! LEGOr MINDSTORMSr NXT is back and better than ever with new models, more customisable programming and all-new technologies. Lego Mindstorm nxt 2.0 designed for ages 10 and up. You need approximately only one hour to create and program your first robot. After that, you can create an endless lineup of robots that do what you want–if you can dream it, you can build it. the MINDSTORMS Software lets you program your robot. This building kit enables you to construct robots that see, speak, feel, and move. Finally, our testers liked how this set offers a great balance of learning and fun, and encourages interest in science, computers, and engineering.

Nxt 2.0 Projects Product Featurues
Nxt 2.0 projects features the latest in robotic technology: an advanced programmable microcontroller. All the smart technologies you need to create your custom robot such as interactive Servo Motors, smart sensors, icon-based drag-and-drop programming software, interactive challenges, and wireless Blue tooth and USB connections.
First, the brain of the MINDSTORMS robot is NXT, an intelligent, computer-controlled LEGO brick that features a 32-bit microprocessor, a large matrix display, input and output ports, and a speaker.
Second, three Interactive Servo Motors give you precise control over the robot and ensure that the robot moves with precision — the built-in rotation sensor can measure one-degree steps.
Third, there are four robotic sensors. The first is the Ultrasonic Sensor, one of two sensors that gives your robot vision. You can use it to make your robot avoid obstacles, sense and measure distance, and detect movement.
And fourth of all, two Touch Sensors give your robot a sense of touch. They detect when they are being pressed or released, and you can use them to make your robot pick up things or act on command. For example, by pressing a Touch Sensor you can make your robot walk, talk, close a door, or turn off your TV.
There’s also a Color Sensor that functions three ways: it distinguishes colors — black and white, as well as a range of bright and pastel colors — it distinguishes light settings, and it can be used as a color lamp.
What’s in the Box
NXT programmable LEGO Brick, Ultrasonic Sensor, Color Sensor, two Touch Sensors, three Interactive Servo Motors, USB cable, 7×6-wire cables, building instructions for four robots, user guide, software, test pad, and 619 LEGO pieces.

Lego Mindstorm Nxt 2.0 Review
Here is one of the honest nxt 2.0 projects review by J. Adams that already purchase and use this Robot.
Mindstorms NXT 2.0 is a great toy! Packaging was perfect – the first thing we did was count every part and mark it off on the parts list. Nothing missing!! In fact we got one extra piece. The directions for assembling the robots were remarkably clear and detailed. Once in a while I wish the camera angle was a little different, but (to see more detail in a particular place) this did not stop us from successfully building all four designs. One extremely important piece of advice is, work together with someone and have them check *each* assembly step you complete. There are many tiny pieces and if you are off by even just one hole, you will end up having to disassemble all the work completed until you find your error. That’s why I suggest having a partner help you. Unless you are the type that is extremely fastidious and re-check every assembly step. But the real fun begins once you have built the examples provided with the purchase. With those four designs under your belt, now you can move on to whatever else your imagination can envision. Oh, and by the way, the programming interface is National Instruments “Lab Views”, which is (in simple terms) a graphical method to do object oriented design. If you have ever priced Lab Views for an engineering application, you’ll see that it costs between $1k to over $5k. So how Lego managed to get Lab Views as their programming language in a robot that costs only about $350, I really do not know. Finally, if you build all the models that came with the kit, there are plenty of forums where you can browse designs submitted by others. And if, along the way, your child (or you) learn some robotics and/or design and programming skills, it’s a win-win situation! Don’t hesitate, go for it! You won’t regret it for a minute.
