Synopsis:

EV3 without limits!

 

Build 5 amazing robotics projects that take DIY to a whole new level!

 

You can do way more with your LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit than anyone ever told you! In this full-color, step-by-step tutorial, top-maker and best-selling author John Baichtal shows you how to transcend Mindstorms’ limits as you build five cutting-edge robotics projects.

 

You’ll discover just how much you can do with only the parts that came with your kit–and how much farther you can go with extremely low-cost add-ons like Arduino and Raspberry Pi. You’ll learn how to reprogram your Mindstorms Intelligent Brick to add additional hardware options and create more complex programs.

 

Hundreds of full-color, step-by-step photos teach you every step, every skill. Whenever you’re ready for advanced techniques, Baichtal explains them in plain English.


Here’s just some of what you’ll learn how to do:

 

  • Build a drawing Plotter Bot that gyrates to draw new patterns
  • Hack Mindstorms’ wires–and control robots without wires
  • Create a remote-controlled crane, and operate it from your smartphone
  • Use the EV3 brick to control third-party electronic modules of all kinds
  • Replace the EV3 brick with smarter, more flexible Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or BeagleBone Black hardware
  • Build a robotic flower whose petals open and close based on time of day
  • Use third-party sensors to build robots that can sense practically anything
  • Load an alternate operating system onto your EV3 brick
  • 3D print, laser, and mill your own perfect LEGO parts
  • Create ball contraptions, and extend them with your own custom parts
  • Make a pole-climbing robot–and hook up an altimeter to track its height
