    it’s so ridiculous for publish in Traditional Chinese. There is few people in Taiwan. Why don’t you invite me to Translate into Simple Chinese that is real popular in the world! You are funny.

    I would like to query a question. I plane to follow this book to learn Lego’s robot. If my system is #45544 rather than #31313, how many extra elements should purchase to let me can complete all the topics described within this book. Is there any information?

    1. You can read more details about the pieces in both EV3 sets here.

      However, you can also follow along most of the programming activities, simply with the #45544 Educator vehicle. This holds for chapters 1-9. In that case, you won’t need additional pieces.

      The robot used for teaching programming in Chapters 14-17 doesn’t require many pieces, and can also be built with #45544 if you make small modifications.

      To do the other building projects you will need all of the pieces of the #31313 kit, as explained in the article. However, you could instead use the projects as inspirations for projects you build with your own LEGO pieces.

    Is the translation to Simplified Chinese still in progress? It has been a while since the translation was started probably two years ago. Thanks!

    Thank you so much! I took look at the sample pages. Some of the translations are not accurate, such as the translation for the Gyro sensor. I guess the translator probably doesn’t have the engineering background. Overall, it looks OK.
