The LEGO® BOOST Idea Book
95 simple robots to build with the LEGO BOOST robotics kit
San Francisco, CA (February 12, 2019)—The LEGO BOOST Idea Book ($24.95, 264 pp., ages 7+) is a collection of 95 inventive robotics models for kids by bestselling LEGO author Yoshihito Isogawa. This nearly wordless guide, a hallmark of Isogawa’s style, offers up a collection of imaginative mechanisms for readers to try. From chomping bots, flapping wings, and gripping fingers, these simple machines challenge readers to push their creative boundaries to the limits.
“I’m excited to publish this latest book by Yoshihito Isogawa. Like his previous books, his innovative LEGO BOOST models are sure to inspire a generation of engineers.” -Bill Pollock, No Starch Press Founder
Readers learn how to build a variety of mechanisms like suspended vehicles and rocket-launchers by following minimalist, full-color photo instructions complete with lists of parts and handy screenshots of programs. Once they’ve worked their way through Isogawa’s library of ideas and mastered his creations, they can integrate his designs into their own intelligent robots.
