   schema:reviewBody ""The LEGO MINDSTORMS Robotics Invention System enables anyone to build a programmable robot with an assortment of LEGO pieces that snap, slide and click into place. The MINDSTORMS Programmable Brick, called the RCX, contains a microcomputer that enables those who build robots to program their movement. Sensors and motors can be attached to the RCX and suddenly, what was an ordinary LEGO model comes to life. Not only does it move, but it can also sense and respond to its environment. The goal of this book is to provide direction through in-depth explanations and hands-on fun. MINDSTORMS expert Dave Baum helps readers with both programming and building MINDSTORMS robots. The author provides step-by-step instructions for building and creating an assortment of sample robots. He also teaches readers how to program MINDSTORMS robots using LEGO's RCX Code or his own specially developed programming language NQC."--Jacket." ;
