Hacking Your LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Kit.pdf



LEGO Mindstorms EV3 has taken the world by storm… but you can do way more with LEGO's kit than anyone ever told you! In this full-color, step-by-step tutorial, top maker and best-selling author John Baichtal shows how to transcend Mindstorms' limits as you build five cutting-edge robotics projects. Every project in this guide can be built with only the parts that come with the kit. Once you've done that, Baichtal shows how to inexpensively supplement LEGO's kit to accomplish even more. Here's just some of what Hacking Your LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Kit will show you how to do:

  • Build a drawing machine that gyrates to draw new patterns
  • Create a remote-controlled crane, and control it with your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone
  • Replace the Mindstorms EV3 brick with the powerful and flexible Arduino, Beaglebone, or Raspberry Pi microcontrollers
  • Build a robot flower whose petals open and close based on the time of day
  • Create ball contraptions, and extending them by designing your own custom parts
  • Use the EV3 brick to control third-party sensors, lights, and other electronic modules
  • Load an alternate operating system onto your EV3 brick
  • Construct a robot that can roll up and down a flagpole – and even knows how high it is
