LEGO Mindstorms EV3 API
As developers, we're always excited to see the next generation take interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). That interest is shared by our friends over at LEGO Education, the people responsible for the new LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3. Inspired by their new robotics kits, we created SentryBot with MINDSTORMS, two Surface Pros and new Windows 8.1 APIs to demo at Build 2013.
Now that Windows 8.1 and the MINDSTORMS EV3 are available publically, we're releasing an API for you to make whatever robotic future you (or your kids) can dream up. The API provides access to control the motors and read real-time data from the sensors. You can connect to and control your LEGO EV3 brick over Bluetooth, WiFi, or USB. The project provides libraries that are usable from the Windows desktop, Windows Phone 8, and WinRT (via .NET, WinJS and C++), along with full source code and samples.
