Which Legos version to start with NXT or EV3

Postby BobAlston » Mon Feb 17, 2014 12:00 am

I am just starting into robotics. My interest is much more in the programming/controlling via code of some sort than in the building of physical robots. With that in mind, any recommendations as to whether I should start with enchanting for Lego Mindstorm NXT or EV3?

It appears to me that the ENchanting software for EV3 is very much in its infantcy?

Are there any significant advantages in the "bricks" for NXT vs EV3?

Actually I may have mispoken. It appears that leJOS for EV3 is in its infancy.

Does Enchanting exist for EV3 at this time?

Take a look at this thread viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4481 ... apparently there is a plan, it would be SO USEFUL as the Lego provided software is so unfriendly for childern (imho) and super slow GUI too. A shame Lego didn't put some money behind supporting either Enchanting or MIT app inventor which is another project based on the same base as Sratch and also supports NXT.

Personally I'm checking back several times a week to see if I find anything new here, its what I need for my son.
