This is awesome.
In response to last week's call for vintage computer robotics help, Ben
G. sent us his new-in-box Lego LOGO kit from 1986.
I was 13 in 1987. My two favorite things were Legos and my Apple //e. I
distinctly remember wishing for a way to combine them. We were learning
BASIC in school, we'd already learned LOGO turtle graphics, and nobody
ever told us that Lego ** DID ** have a kit for this.
In adulthood I learned about Mindstorms but never bought any. My
childhood dream had already been squashed.
Today the package arrived from Ben. I opened it and turned 13 again.
Thank you, Ben!!!!!
This is an incredible setup and I can't wait to start playing wi... errr
"testing" :) it ahead of HOPE.
Check out these pictures:
It also has an IBM PC card (with printed instructions for interfacing to
it), all the sensors/cables, and even the warranty card.... truly
new-in-box. The actual Lego parts are in their original sealed plastic bags.
I almost hate to open it! Obviously going to be extremely careful,
unlike when I was child and ripped it all open. :)
