Lego Boost is the crazy robot cat guitar kit you never knew you wanted. Scott Stein got to grips with this robotic wonder.
The Good Forms five unique creations out of the box, and can be customized; uses regular Lego pieces; programming possibilities are limited to what Lego offers, but offers lots of depth.
The Bad Needs a tablet or phone (Android or iOS) to connect to in order to use (and get access to assembly instructions). Need to dismantle one robot before building another. In-app instructions can sometimes get confusing. Not compatible with Lego Mindstorms kits.
The Bottom Line Lego’s young kid-targeted robotics set isn’t as deep as Mindstorms, but has a ton of things to do, and it’s a lot of fun to play with.
LEGO Boost Coming soon to Yuppie Gadgets.
