Lego's third-generation Mindstorms kit has been redesigned to appeal to both kids desperate to craft and modders looking for even more customizability. With assembly instructions now provided by a 3D animated diagram on an iPad app, this isn't the Lego you'll have remember from childhood. If you'd like to see what it's like in action, head on past the break to watch the video.

The company has worked towards building devices that have "personality" and the demonstration model that we played with certainly had that in spades. We waved our hands in front of a hissing snake and watched with amusement as it wiggled and snapped at our fingers. It made the 12-year-old in all of us giggle with a level of enthusiasm we shouldn't have displayed in public. Suffice to say, we can't wait to spend more time with this device when it launches around August, when it'll set us back around $350.
