    has the educational set additional sensors? how does the Gyro Boy balance? Has it a gyroscope?

  3. Sara says:

    What are the big differences in the software? It looks the same.

    The graphics on the brick screen seems to be clearer and maybe larger?

    I make games for the NXT, and with the NXT physics engine I made(with other help), with the new EV3 processor it should go SO MUCH FASTER!!!!!! 😀
    I will also be able to make my new EV3 grayscale (yes, grayscale) games faster! 😀

    Hi Laurens,

    Do you have details about “sets” of EV3? Just like something you wrote up on NXT articles.

    Is anybody having problems with Lego EV3 robot repeatability? I am mentor for a FLL team
    in Dover, DE. We have written several programs for the FLL challenge using EV3 software
    and they run fine most of the time. A student will run it again and suddenly the robot has
    a brain fart, it goes straight instead of turning or it does not turn at all. I have talked to Lego
    technical support and they said to erase all programs on the brick or reload the firmware.
    This had a temporary effect. Has anybody found a reason and/or a fix for this?
