Let's get started with exploring the kit. We have over 900 elements to build robots, upgraded sensors, a new Intelligent Hub compared to previous versions, and new programming platforms to bring our robots to life and control:
To begin with, we are going to examine what the new elements in this kit are for us to build within our designs, how the sensors have changed, and the new Intelligent Hub. As we explore, we will take a closer look at some excellent features of this kit to start learning more about this LEGO Mindstorms product.
Finally, we will do some exploration of the new programming interface and how we use code to bring our ideas to life. The end goal of this chapter is to make sure you understand all the possibilities and to build a foundation of basic knowledge of the kit to begin to build some of the exciting ideas to follow in the upcoming chapters. This would also be a perfect time to build some or all of the five robots that come with the software to see how everything works and operates. There is not any specific building in this chapter, but it serves as an understanding of what can be achieved with the parts.
In this chapter, we're going to cover the following main topics:
- Overview of the kit
- The Intelligent Hub
- New elements
- Basic projects to learn more
