App Launch: LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Robot Commander is Now Available for iPhone and Android

Robot Commander, the command app for LEGO® MINDSTORMS®, has officially launched! 

Robot Commander controls LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 robots that walk, talk, think and do anything you can imagine – all from your device. The app connects with five different robots via Bluetooth to bring their distinct features to life.

Rocketeer Tommy Eubanks said this was a unique project for Bottle Rocket, particularly from a quality assurance standpoint.

“This was Bottle Rocket’s first project that required a hardware accessory. Thorough testing involved crosschecking different LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot configurations in addition to the usual testing across iOS and Android devices,” Eubanks said. 

The project was a labor of love for Rocketeers and the results were well worth it. LEGO's website calls this product the most advanced technology they’ve ever developed.

The app is available on iTunes and Google Play
