Author and robot builder extraordinaire Fay Rhodes (The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Zoo!) is back with more creative animal models in LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT One-Kit Creatures. Based on the new NXT 2.0 kit, LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 One-Kit Creatures contains complete building instructions for interactive robots with animal behaviors. Every model in the book can be built from only one LEGOreg; MINDSTORMSreg; NXT 2.0 kit, so you won't be left scrounging for parts. You'll learn how to build a spitting llama, a gorilla with life-like movements, a two-toed sloth that hangs and walks across a tree limb, a Komodo dragon, a roaring polar bear, a fighting reindeer, a hopping kangaroo, and an ostrich with a funny walk. Quick programming instructions are included in the book, and ready-to-run programs are available for download from the web. The book's full-color, easy-to-follow instructions make it easy to build a group of fun robots and get more out of your NXT 2.0 kit.
