More NXT 2.0 pictures available
New images from toy fairs all over the world slowly pop up. Gadget review blog Pocket-Lint states, "Mindstorms NXT 2.0, will focus on offering 10 to 14-year-old boys a good robot experience rather than trying to appeal to the hardcore fans that use the kit.
Other new features include the inclusion of ten robot instructions from the software rather than two as in the previous model."
The article also tells us that this kit will cost around £200, which is about $285. However, these prices may vary per country: LEGO usually has different prices for different countries.
If follow the article link and click on more images, you will also see something which appears to be a new NXT- G feature, a remote control. This would suggest that the kit comes with newer software than version 1.1, which currently ships with NXT kits.
Update: One of readers correctly states that the target audience referenced on the Pocket-Lint blog doesn't cover the complete audience. Of course, Mindstorms NXT 2.0 is suitable and fun for both boys and girls, and I do not see the reason for a maximum age limit, either.
