EV3 Quick Tips

While I'm a subscriber of 'LEGO Education North America' YT channel, somehow I also missed their latest videos until my attention was raised at another forum.

Tim Lankford from LE US, shows and tell us about the new EV3 elements (pBrick, motors and sensors) in a series of videos, where e speaks about the features and improvements to their NXT predecessors (when it applies).
I found them interesting to share here with you and hope you enjoy viewing them.

About the Intelligent or Programmable Brick (pBrick)

About the new motors (Large and Medium Servo motors)

And finally about the sensors to release in the first wave (Touch Sensor, Color Sensor, Infrared Sensor and Beacon, Ultrasonic Sensor, Gyro Sensor)

A great bunch of good stuff!

Thanks for posting these videos! I had not seen them before. I hope that the new EV3 Large Servo Motor and EV3 Medium Servo Motor are available for sale separately upon the August 2013 public release of the EV3 set (unlike the Power Functions L-Motor and PF Servo Motor, which has not been separately available for 10 MONTHS since the release of the 9398 4x4 Crawler set).

Good point Dave!
Hence the EV3 has 4 motor ports it would be a good idea to be able to buy at least one extra motor. ;-)

I am very excited about the medium servo motor. I have been complaining about the bulkiness of the NXT servomotors since they came out!!! Can't wait! :)
