We review the incredible LEGO Mindstorms NXT robot building kit!

LEGO's Mindstorms NXT robot kit is here! It's packed with over 500 pieces including robotic eyes and ears, servo motors to get it moving, a speaker so it can talk, a touch sensor and an awesome intelligent brick that controls it all. You can get a move on conquering the world (or at least your back yard) with a LEGO robot army with a fistful of rechargeable batteries and the Quick Start Kit. Then it's time to grab your dad, build some of the bigger LEGO robots and start programming them. It's a bit tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, wow. Seriously, WOW. All in capitals and everything.

You can do incredible stuff with the LEGO Mindstorms NXT. From controlling it through your cell phone to programming it to move around (stick to wheels, robot legs don't work very well!) and talk to people - or even to have it pass commands to other Mindstorms robots. If you're really hardcore, you can head to www.mindstorms.com and download more files to let you do some really freaky stuff - but you need advanced programming skills for that.
