About this book

Building robots is a snap with LEGO Technic Robotics! This book shows you how to use LEGO bricks and Power Functions components such as motors and remote controls to create all kinds of robots. Best of all, you don’t have to learn any programming. You just need your imagination and the expert building principles that you’ll find inside LEGO Technic Robotics.

Author Mark Rollins teaches you the hows and whys of Technic project design. You’re not just snapping pieces here and there; with LEGO Technic Robotics you’re actively learning the fundamentals of good design so you can go on to create truly spectacular LEGO robot creations.

From robots that run on wheels, walk on two or four legs, or move and function in ways that only you can dream up, this book will help you create your own robot army. Turn to LEGO Technic Robotics and build with real power!

After you’ve mastered the techniques in this book, if you’re looking to build more creations, check out Practical LEGO Technics, also written by Mark Rollins, and discover how to build vehicles that can roll, run, and more.
