LEGO builders that are lucky enough to own the new LEGO EV3 robotic building system, might be interested in the new upgrade for the processor that is used to control your LEGO creations in the form of the EVB.
The EVB has been created by FATCATLAB and been specifically designed to replace the brain and sensors in your LEGo EV3 Mindstorm system using a BeagleBone Black single board mini PC.
The new BeagleBone Black powered EVB is 100 percent LEGO compatible but is much more powerful than the provided controller within the LEGO system. watch the video below to learn more about its features and functions and how they can help you expand the project you create using your LEGO EV3 set.
The EVB LEGO EV3 processor project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $8,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
“EVB is a shield (or called cape) for Beaglebone Black (BBB). It fully support LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 system, either the hardware and software! EVB is compatible with all LEGO sensors just like the EV3 Brick, 100% compatible! It allows the EV3 VM to be run on the Beaglebone Black. What powerful is, with extra Sensor Board in EVB system, you can do more! This means you can add more sensors to your LEGO system.
EVB can be loved by users especially those wanting to expand both platforms even further and their learning, making, hacking, coding journey into the now quickly emerging wonderful world of making!”
