New LEGO ‘Star Wars’ enhanced command teaches coding

LEGO has announced its latest Star Wars collaboration — the LEGO Star Wars Boost Droid Commander. It’s part of LEGO’s Boost toy line and provides all the tools your child (or you) need to build a programmable R2-S2, Gonk Droid, and Mouse Droid, while also teaching you all about how to code.

The Droid Commander set consists of 1,177 pieces, which is enough bricks for the new LEGO R2-S2, Gonk Droid and Mouse Droid set that can be built and programmed. It also includes a color and distance sensor and a Bluetooth Move center — allowing each droid to perform different tasks, mimicking real movements and sounds from the film. The droids are controlled through LEGO’s accompanying app available for iOS, Android, and Fire (Amazon) smart devices.

Here’s a look at how they work:
