The NXT one kit wonders

Finnaly its here (tommorow). If all goes to plan a few stores (ex. Borders) will get the new book on November 1st. There are 10 projects that you can build with only 1 set! I belive I will buy it tommorow becasue my mother just got a coupon to get 40% off any book greater than 20$ and that book is 30$ that means I will get the book for the low price of 18$!!! WOW. Thats 12 whole dollars cheaper. If you have the rewards program at Borders you can get the coupon to by E-mail and get a whole 12$ off.

Poll is in!

It seems that 2 out of 3 people like the main lego site more than the lego education site. personnaly I like lego edu because they have the seprate parts (ex. 24t gears, 100 track links, 25 m pully wheels) so if you need a few parts you can get them. Pick a brick is mostly normal block lego so the edu site is very usefull. Its like a pick a brick for technic and NXT.

Which programming language?

Well the votes are in and we found that more people plrefer nxt-g over all the other ones. One person prefered nXc. Personally I prefer nXc and nxt-g. I havnt found which one i really like better because I like them both the same. If I couldnt use either of them and I had to choose which to learn I would choose nXc becasue of its power. I use nxt-g more but I like nXc a lot too.

Located is South Philadelphia, Pennsylvaina, A museum called the American Sweedish Historical Museum has an exhibit featuring Nathan Sawaya. Although non-Technic, these creations are:

1. HUGE!
2. Very Reaistic
3. Sold for $100,000+
4. Featured on many major news companies.
5. again, HUGE!

I don't have many pictures of the museum, but I have some of Nathan's creations.

I am still amazed about these beyond-expert-builder creations and I want to try to build the skateboard.
