In this section we used the Maze project to learn how attachments work. We also saw that by clicking on the Real-Time Data button, we could literally access a treasure trove of data about the robot and its environment. This information can later be used as a basis for writing a MINDSTORMS® program to help navigate the robot around the Maze.

So far, our focus has been on controlling the sample robot that is provided. However, the real magic of LEGO® robotics comes from the ease with which we can design our own creations.
