LEGO Mindstorms 8547 has arrived!!

Published on 07 December 2011

I am happy to say that I am now the proud owner of a LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 8547 set.  I blogged about this set last month, when I was suggesting that it would make an ideal Christmas present for a geek, however, after getting some Amazon vouchers for my birthday, I decided to go ahead and order it.

I haven’t had much of a chance to play with it tonight, had a few other things on the go, but I will definitely be playing with this over the Christmas break, and I am really looking forward to it!

With the help of a book that I also got for my birthday (thanks Andy!), one of the first things that I will be building is a Rubik Cube Solver.  I have seen lots of videos of this on YouTube, and I honestly think that it is amazing what you can do.

If you haven’t seen this in action, take a look at the video below:

This particular example is not the quickest or smoothest solver of Rubik Cubes, however, it is built with the LEGO pieces that comes with the set that I have, so for that reason, it is as good a place to start as any!

If you are interested in the unboxing and contents of the 8547 set, you can take a look at the photos below.
