Mindstorms Education EV3 Due for release August 1st

Lego have today announced the release date for the much anticipated upcoming Mindstorms EV3 set in a press release. The education variant of the set is due to be available starting on the 1st of August this year. Hopefully the consumer version will become available at a similar time.

In related news, we are expecting them to also release a "Space Exploration" expansion set for the EV3 line after the release. This will likely be similar to the expansion packs they used to make for the original Mindstorms set.
