New Mindstorms!

Oho! The long awaited update to Lego Mindstorms has been announced and it looks pretty cool. See some stuff at the Mindstorms site and a Wired article about the development. It looks pretty cool - Mac support from the "official" environment, Bluetooth support for wireless programming, new ultrasonic vision and sound sensors and all motors have built in rotation sensors. All that adds up to a remarkably capable update. Daddy likes!

Lego buying has been at a lull - it's been a while since I played with my Mindstorms and my office is pretty much full up on models. Add in a lack of interest in most of the newer lines and . . . I just haven't done much. But this new CPU looks schweet.
