LEGO Mindstorms NXT One-Kit Wonders

Book description
The creative minds behind the NXT Step blog ( are back with a brand new collection of innovative robots. LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT One Kit Wonders is packed with building and programming instructions for ten exciting robots. The book dives headfirst into the creative thrill of robot-building with models like Grabbot, a robot that finds, grabs, lifts, and moves objects autonomously; Dragster, a super-fast drag racing vehicle; and The Hand, a simple robotic replacement hand to protect you from those dangerous cleanup jobs, like picking up your brother’s dirty gym socks. To further fire your imagination, you’ll also learn how to build a self-parking car model, an M&M sorter, a punchcard reading robot, a bike, and a realistic BobCat.

Step by step building instructions make it simple to construct even the most complex models while the detailed programming instructions teach you how a NXT program really works. All of the models in the book can be built with just the basic NXT Retail kit; there are no extra parts to locate or buy.

Armed with the knowledge you gain from this book, you’ll be inventing your own amazing creations in no time. LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT One Kit Wonders is perfect for readers who have enjoyed the other books in the No Starch LEGO series as well as for builders who want to get starting creating right away. Appropriate for kids (10+), parents, educators, and LEGO fans of all ages.

    Hey, do you have the NXT 2.0 Discovery Book by Laurens Valk?? I bought it 2 weeks ago, was having great fun when my son lost it. I went to the main website to download it online, but it asks me for these security questions, that can only be answered if I have the book. Could you please tell me what the answers are?

    What is the first word of the ‘Note’ on page 4?
    How many arrows do you see in step 8 on page 212?
    If you can help me thank you very much, I don’t want my $20 to go to waste.

    Hi, Thanks so much for your comment. Unfortunately the NXT 2.0 kit and NXT “1.0” come with different building elements, so the models in this book can’t be built with a 2.0 set only. You’re on the spot, though. That’s why I made a new, NXT 2.0 book 🙂

    Hi Laurens200!
    I recently bought a Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 kit from the Lego store near Disneyland. I am vey excited about the prospect of building robots from legos and amazed at all the lego robots on youtube. Unfortunately, I find the instructions that come with the box to be unbelievably inadequate. I ask you, regarding these 10 robots in the One-Kit Wonders book: can they be built with just the parts my NXT 2.0 kit? Don’t worry, I’ll buy your book too when it come out!
