Lego Mindstorms NXT Coupon

What's a gift for the holidays that's sure to please your friends and family? Since this is a blog for the Roboraptor I'm sure it's no surprise I'd recommend that as a gift, especially since Amazon is currently selling them for only $69 (USD).

But that's a fully assembled ready to play robot, and sometimes it's just more fun to build your own and learn a lot about robotics in the process. The Lego Mindstorms NXT robotics kit is the successor to the best selling Mindstorms 1.0 and 2.0 kits. The CPU (brain) has been upgraded to a full 32-bit processor. There are new sensors to make the robots you build smarter and more versatile, and the LABView interface is a joy for young and old to use while they create a variety of fun and interesting new robots. If you have a budding robot engineer on your hands that wants to build robots without having to own a machine shop, then buy them the Lego Mindstorms NXT robotics kit.

SAVINGS TIP: The Discovery Channel, the award winning educational TV broadcasting company, has created a that will knock off $20 off your Lego Mindstorms NXT purchase. Make sure you write down the coupon code 99Robo and visit the Discovery Store now. This is one of their top selling items and you don't want to be left out if it becomes hard to find like the Tickle Me Elmo TMX doll is now.
