New EV3 Building Idea Book by Isogawa

Yoshihito Isogawa, known for his marvelous mechanical contraptions, has announced a new book that will be released in October. The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Idea Book contains pictures of numerous small and sophisticated mechanisms to use in your own EV3 robots. Best of all, you’ll need just one LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 set to build each mechanism.

This book will be a great addition to books that cover EV3 programming along with complete robot designs such as The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Discovery Book.


Here’s the full description from the publisher’s website:

The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Idea Book introduces you to hundreds of creative ways to build amazing mechanisms with the EV3 kit. This nearly wordless, photographic book will have you building mechanical contraptions and testing them out. Each model in the book includes a list of the parts you’ll need and photographs from every angle, so you can recreate it without the need for step-by-step instructions. Experience the joy of hands-on discovery as you explore Isogawa’s inventive and captivating creations.

You’ll learn to build cars with real suspension, steerable crawlers, ball-shooters, grasping robotic arms, and other creative marvels. Each model demonstrates simple mechanical principles that you can use as building blocks for your own creations. Best of all, every part you need to follow along is in one EV3 kit!

Requirements: One LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 set (LEGO SET #31313)
