  • Does not include connector cable.
  • This is the individual component, and does not include the NXT Intelligent Brick, software or any accessories. It requires the complete LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT set (#8527 or #8547) for use.

    The most usefull sensor of them all!
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Allthough it is one of the most simple sensors, it is probably my most used of all mine. (and I have a wide variety of hitechnic sensors, as well as the standered ones that came with the nxt.) It has so many great uses and i use it in most of my creations using nxt.

    better than old one
    | 14-18
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    This is better than the old sensor from the RCX kit but needs some improvement. It could be MUCH more sensative, like being able to detect how far it is being pushed in. another improvement would be to not have to be pushed all the way in because that way it would be much easier to detect actual touch instead of if it is just pushed in or not.

    Could be better
    | 35-44
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    This is a great sensor in comparison to the RCX old one. The button is bigger, but there is one thing that hasn't changed: the sensitivity. The other thing that could be improved is the size, this is a lot larger than the old one. Keep it up Lego.

    Awesome!

    I would recommend this to a friend!
    It really works if you are using it for a bumper, etc. But I wish it was a little smaller and cheaper than $20. I think it is great but just a couple dollars cheaper.
