Per Moore's law, and the history that electronics are almost always dropping in price, I would like to see an NXT 2.5 set, with an
upgraded NXT brick. And since $300 seems to be a reasonable price point for the NXT set, the NXT 2.5 would be $300. I am
still quite content with the mechanical parts assortment in the NXT set, or actually in 2 sets, plus extras from Bricklink. But I
can't get a faster clock chip or NXT memory chips on Bricklink. For speed, I would like a processor that runs 4x as fast, so I can
run 4 threads at twice the speed that I currently run 2 threads. A 2 core processor would be nice. And I would like 2x the
memory or more. Sound files take a fair amount of memory. I use a robotic animal to give assignments in a school where
I tutor. The kids each have a colored name tag that they swipe, and the robot says her / his name, and assigns a project.
It really connects with the kids when the robot says their name. But there are 24 kids in a class, and with the program file
and assignment sound file, I can only fit 12 - 14 names into memory. Connecting two robots with Bluetooth works, but
double the memory would be a simpler solution. Rereading this post, it reads more like a letter to TLG than a Mindboards
discussion, but it may make a good discussion, and maybe someone from TLG occasionally reads Mindboards.
