Lego Linux Robot with iOS and Android Compatibility
Lego have announced that the "EV3 Intelligent Brick" for their LEGO Mindstorms Robot will run Linux and be able to be interfaced to Apple iOS and Google Android devices. The brick will have a USB port and SD slot will offer nearly unlimited programming and expansion capabilities. The brick will cost US$349.99, which is expensive for something with the equivalent computing power to a $25 USB computer, but would be useful for education, given Lego's support and materials.
