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.
Up until very recently, the only languages available to program Lego Mindstorms were NQC, pbForth, and legOS.
