Lego Mindstorms EV3 Unboxing Video

This Lego Mindstorms EV3 unboxing video by EV3 developer Laurens Valk shows you what you get in the box. The word on the street is that the Technic parts are mostly the same as previous sets, with the EV3 microcontroller brick showing the most changes. It looks pretty radical! There’s an SD card slot, a higher-resolution screen, and increased processing power with an ARM9 running Linux.

I’m expecting a receive a review set this week, and I’m really looking forward to playing around with the EV3 as well as its software, which has also been redesigned from the ground up.

Any questions about the set? Leave them in comments and I’ll attempt to answer them once I have the set in hand. And by the way, the set hits stores on September 1st and will cost $350.
