Lego Boost Robotics Kit

Lego Boost is not replacing the popular Lego Mindstorms robotics kits. Boost is aimed at introducing younger kids to the basics of programming, while Mindstorms offers more advanced robotics kits for more experienced builders. Lego Boost combines building blocks with sensors, motors, and Android/iOS app control to let kids build a variety of robots that can respond to stimulii. The Lego Boost base starter set is priced at $160 and will be available later this year. It comes with the Move Hub, a distance/color sensor, a motor, and 843 Lego bricks.
