I’ve always been a fan of the LEGO Mindstorms robotics system that teaches children and adults how to build and program robots. Usually, you would use your Mac or PC to program the robot’s brain, but now you can use your iPad or Android tablet, too.
The LEGO Group just announced the availability of its LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Programmer App. Using the Programmer app, you can create programs for Mindstorms robots directly from iOS and Android tablets.
The app lets you use a selection of the most-used LEGO Mindstorms software commands to program the EV3, including action blocks, flow blocks, and comment blocks. The app also features building missions, videos, and building instructions for five starter robots.
