    Just came out of the Dark Age

    Thanks, I already found those, very addictive to read :) It sure is sunny here ;)
  2. Hi all, I'm Joos, nickname GrandiJoos, from the Netherlands. I'm just coming out if my dark ages after finally buying the 31313 EV3 mindstorms set earlier this year. And a second hand 8043 RC excavator (Ultimate edition :) ) just last week. I'm mainly trying to automate stuff using the EV3 set. My recent attempt to motorize (and add sounds and lights to) my 1994 8880 supercar failed. I'm currently trying to EV3-ise my 8043 which seems to be easier. I'm 35, Dutch, male, father of 2 girls who luckily also like Lego, married (to a wife who does not really understand Lego but gives me showcase space in the living room), and data scientist for a profession. Hope to have some fun here sharing a common love, and joining a community.

    I know, that's why I assume/hope that the 51515 will also support this, hopefully upon release already.

    Indeed, although I'm looking forward to a new mindstorms set, I'm also curious. I hope the motors, and sensors, are smaller than the EV3, as well as the smart brick. Looking at the upcoming control+ elements I certainly hope they are compatible (and not Yet-Another-Elecrical-System). Furthermore, I also hope they add extra features not present in the EV3, although not really sure what that could be. Native Python support would be great, and actually feasible given the micro python release for EV3 by TLG. Finally, the Liebherr is a bit steep at 450€, I hope the 51515 will be a bit lower in price. So far for my ideal-world expectations ;) Can't wait for more details!
