  • LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 (US Version)
    Great educational/fun kit for kids and their parents.
    Review by Olek
    Great kit that allows me to play with my son and to teach him basics of programming/robotics all while connecting with him and sharing his excitement. It is only going to get better over time as open source support for it grows and becomes more mature. Overall kit has a good quality feel to it, and software with instructions is really nice, especially software for tablets that allows to see building steps one by one in 3D, with animation, from any angle, with any zoom factor. If anything, it would be nice to have version of main software package for Linux.

Yes, I'd like to see some more pix. You say Lego tracks and sprockets? I suppose I could mill the sprockets easily enough. Just thinking at this time.
