Mindstorms NXT 2.0

The LEGO 8547 Mindstorms NXT 2.0 Robot is now available, and is currently retailing from Amazon for £168! It can be programmed from a PC or Mac, has light and colour sensors, loudspeaker and 100 x 64 pixel LCD display. On a negative note it requires six AA batteries; would have been much better with a lithium-ion pack.

You can also get the Mindstorms NXT 2.0 from Firebox.com.

Do you know what other sensors the Mindstorms robot has?

There's quite a variety of sensors available, as far as I know.

* acceleration and tilt

* compass
