Lego Boost is a complete tool kit that enables users to construct fully-functional, Lego-based robots. The supply list includes a color and distance sensor, motor, 840 Lego bricks, and a power system with a built-in tilt sensor.

Don't let the prospects of programming impede your exciting Lego designs. Users can still enjoy creating these robotic projects even if coding isn't a strong suit. The Lego Boost companion app has a drag-and-drop interface that allows anyone to build robots with seamless functionality. If you're a tech-savvy individual, there is an option to customize each of the robotic movements within the app where the code is available.

The Lego Boost construction kit comes with five different projects to build and program. The various designs include a cat, bulldozer, Lego-stacking machine, and standard robot. The construction process is supplemented by the helpful smartphone app, which provides a step-by-step guide throughout the entire assembly. As the user progresses through the different design stages, new movements are unlocked, generating an encouraging and fun environment.

Lego Boost, which hopes to boost interest in STEM activities for ages 7 and up, will be available this summer for $160.
