What is the next generation LEGO EV3?


Hi Maker of Makeblock

One of my friends launched a new project on Kickstarter.com

EVB: Replace the Brain and Sensors in your LEGO? MINDSTORMS EV3 with a BeagleBone Black. 100% LEGO Compatible but Much More Powerful.

If you like, please visit the link below to get the super early edition. Or search “EVB” on Kickstarter.com

EVB is a shield (or called cape) for Beaglebone Black (BBB). It fully support LEGO? MINDSTORMS? EV3 system, either the hardware and software! EVB is compatible with all LEGO? sensors just like the EV3 Brick, 100% same! It allows the EV3 VM to be run on the Beaglebone Black. What powerful is, with extra Sensor Board in EVB system, you can do more! This means you can add more sensors to your LEGO? system.

I will be appreciated if you can help us sharing this information to who like making something or LEGO fan, robotic fan, etc.

We are makers, and we enjoy making.


Looks interesting and something I may be interested in if it comes to market. I didn’t see anything about the pricing though. I have been using the BrickPi with one of my Raspberry Pis as an alternative but the downside of that is being tethered. I like the idea of the screen and buttons being on-board.


you can visit the link I share and know how to get one.


I checked it out and it is WAY more expensive than the BrickPi + a Raspberry Pi (now a quad core 900Mhz and 1 gig of RAM - still $35.00) + a screen.
