SPIKE Essential announced

LEGO has just announced a new version of the SPIKE educational robotics platform.

The main point of interest from an AFOL point of view is that it introduces several new electronic components including a smaller 2-port hub, a 3x3x5 motor and an external 3x3 LED matrix.

45345 SPIKE Essential Set contains a small hub, two small motors, a light sensor and an LED matrix. In the UK it can be ordered from Raising Robots where it is priced at £277 including VAT.
