LEGO MINDSTORMS introduces The Robotics Invention System 1.5

September 10, 1999

In response to customer requests to make the Robotics Invention System 1.0 easier for the new user to program and build we are releasing an updated version of the Robotics Invention System. The Robotics Invention System 1.5 is now available.

The purpose of the upgrade package is to offer additional assistance to the new LEGO MINDSTORMS user. One of the most common requests we received from our customers was that we include set-by-set building instructions for creations made from the Robotics Invention System. The new Robotics Invention System Constructopedia contained in the 1.5 version now comes with complete step-by-step instructions to build 3 distinct inventions: the Roverbot, the Acrobot, and the Inventorbot.

We believe that customers who already own the Robotics Invention System 1.0, and have mastered building and programming robots from the kit, may not find the upgrade kit is as useful as a new user would. However, if you are still interested in obtaining a copy of the 1.5 upgrade kit it is available to registered Robotics Invention System 1.0 owners for $25.00 (US Dollars).

The upgrade kit includes: Version 1.5 Constructopedia
Version 1.5 CD ROM
User Guide
Test Pad
Where to purchase: LEGO Shop at Home
