About this book
Lego robots! Mindstorms are sweeping the world and fans need to learn how to programme them Lego Mindstorms are a new generation of Lego Robots that can be manipulated using microcomputers, light and touch sensors, an infrared transmitter and CD-ROMs. Since Lego launched Lego Mindstorms in late 1998 sales have skyrocketed - with no sign of slowing down. Mindstorms have captured the imagination of adults and children alike, creating a subculture of Mindstorm enthusiasts around the world. The kits are now a staple part of engineering and computer science classes at many high profile Universities. Building Robots with Lego Mindstorms provides readers with a fundamental understanding of the geometry, electronics, engineering, and programming required to build your own robots. Mario and Giulio Ferrari are world-renowned experts in the field of Lego Mindstorms robotics, and in this book they share their unrivaled knowledge and expertise of robotics as well as provide a series of chapters detailing how to design and build the most exotic robots. Mario and Giulio also give detailed explanations of how to integrate Lego Mindstorms kits with other Lego programmable bricks such asScout and Cybermaster, as well as with non-robotic Lego Technics models.

    With proper expectations set, this is the droid you've been looking for.

    We've had this little guy for about three months and have been using it pretty much every other day. I couldn't be happier with it's performance.This little robot is a helper, and keeping that in mind, you'll find your floors stay much cleaner in between your more dedicated cleaning sessions.That's not to say you're completely out of the picture. You have a responsibility to use this robot, and while his AI is quite impressive at times, it is still an appliance. This is not entirely a "set it and forget it" robot. Think of it as other helpful appliances. Your dishwasher is great! But you still need to properly load it, pre-rinse when necessary, and occasionally still scrape some dry food off of a fork with your thumbnail. Your washer and dryer are fantastic! But you still need to make time for use in your evenings, transfer from one to the other, and darn it, they still don't fold your clothes.The Braava, is like an appliance in that way... 5/5 Dan (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews This review is from: iRobot Braava 380t Floor Mopping Robot (Misc.)

    Good for maintenance, but will not clean a dirty floor

    I so desperately wanted this to work. As the mom of two kids under five, my floors remain perpetually sticky thanks to spilled juice, dribbled dinner, and a host of other toddler-induced messes. I was thrilled thinking that this floor mopping robot would help make my work load easier. It made me sad to learn that it did little more than just wipe my floors down. I tried it a few different ways: once with the dry sweeping cloth, once with water and the wet mopping cloth, and once with a swiffer wet cloth. It is super easy to use and after the first time I used it, it seemed to learn my kitchen fairly quickly. The bottom of the cloth showed that it had picked up some dirt, but there were still several spots of the floor that I later had to go back and clean by hand. If your floors are already in fairly good condition and you just want a quick touch-up between deep cleanings, I think the Braava can handle that, but if your floors are genuinely in need of mopping, this isn't going to make... 3/5 Sarah B. - See all my reviews, October 8, 2013

    A worthy helper indeed

    Just received the Braava and boy was my wife pleased with it. It does both dry sweeping and wet mopping. We are particularly impressed with the latter. It does take a bit longer for wet mopping (because it goes forward and backward, just like regular mopping) but it sure cleans the our homogeneous-tiled floor well. We can certainly feel the squeaky-clean tiles with our bare feet after it mops!For those who reside outside of the USA, I just want to confirm that the power charger adapter supports 100-240V 50/60Hz power source. Thus, one merely needs the correct power adapter to convert the USA 2-pin to whatever pin arrangement in use in your country. There is NO NEED for any step-down transformer at all!We should have gotten this much earlier!--cpPS: This is a video of the Braava on a wet mopping routine of the kitchen floor: [...]JAN 8, 2014 UPDATE:Barely passed 3 months, the Braava doesn't work any more.

    Does a nice job, but the house needs to be "prepped"

    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:03 MinsWho haven't dreamed of having a robot that does all the cleaning? I have. Loomin Robot is neat, does a nice job cleaning, but not perfect. It cleans fairly well but it was not able to handle all the challenges of my house.Having a cleaning robot feels a bit like having a pet. Cute, does its own thing, sometimes does not behave perfectly. But you still like it. That's how I feel about my Loomin Robot.Loomin Robot is 14" in diameter and 3" tall, which means if it cannot get into areas which are more narrow than 14". On auto-clean it meanders around the house in what seems like a random pattern (unless you select a mode where it does spot cleaning or edges). The first few times it cleaned I observed it very carefully. It got most of the dust but I did find some accessible to it areas which still had dusty spots after 1 hour progress check. Given enough time it does get those areas eventually. In a zig-zag mode it seems... 4/5 Ali Julia (boston, mass) - See all my reviews, June 13, 2015

    Automatic cleaning but slower than mopping

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:45 Mins This robotic cleaner is programmable, can be scheduled, can be run in spot mode, and works to clean floors, dodging chairs and sweeping up floors and carpets. Due to the small size of the dust cup, it's best for hard floors and limited low pile carpet areas. It does work, although it's a lot slower than grabbing a dust mop yourself.The unit comes with a remote, a charging station and a direct AC adapter that can charge the battery with or without the charging station. The unit can be programmed to return to the charging station when finished. I charged it up overnight (first time, you do a 12 hour charge) and ran it in the kitchen on a hardwood floor.It did sweep up my floor slowly but fairly well. I did not test the "anti-fall" feature (where it will sense a "cliff" and stop.) It also has a jam detector--when the unit ran over the edge of a throw rug and got some fringe in the sweeper, it stopped and beeped.
