What a cool product! Hooray for products that ask the consumer to use their brain :)

Regarding whether b-schools will recognize the value of the customer in the innovative process (New Lego Mindstorms!), we already do. Some of the groundbreaking work on this was conducted by Professor Eric Von Hippel, see his recent book "Democratizing Innovation" from MIT Press.

It is cool though, isn't it!

And I see in my trackbacks that the Sloan Business School at MIT will be doing the same this semester: http://spoudaiospaizen.net/archives/2006/01/lego-discovers-users-can-innovate/

Have you read Democratizing Innovation by Prof Hippel of MIT?

I can vouch for the B-school embrace as well. I'm a JD-MBA candidate at Kellogg and Northwestern Law, and I'm currently writing a case study on the Mindstorm/LegOS phenomenon, the co-creation of value with customers, and the corresponding licensing issues (e.g. Lego's inclusion of a "right to hack") through the prism of peer-based production. If anyone would like to discuss further, please email!!

Hi Chris, we just gave you 'something' at M3 after your discussion panel - You might enjoy this video we produced for Coolhunting.com about Mindstorms back in January.

I haven't seen the new challenge yet, all the other challenges were launched on the 1st day of the month, hope i will get the chance to see it in the near future....

Looks pretty good...

Big fan of the "old" NXT. I hope there will be a lot of new sensors available for this model (and that the old ones are backwards compatible ofcourse).

I wonder what the price will be here in the Netherlands

I think that it is perfectly fine to have no changes to the brain of the robot. It doesnt really need any. I can store plenty of programs on it so I dont care to complain about memory. If it does get filled up I can just save it to the comp. I of course am a hardcore nxt fan.I already have two NXTs so I would love to have a third :) I just need to save my money. I would hope that the color sensor is also a light sensor but im sure it can at least measure ambeint lighting. What happened to the sound sensor? I cant wait for it to happen.
