The LEGO Star Wars Boost Droid Commander kit basically teaches you how to code, and what better way to showcase the possibilities than by creating an entire orchestra? To be more specific, the team at LEGO used 95 droids, 10 violins, 8 keyboards, 4 cellos, 30 iPads, and 1 incredible inventor (Carl Merriam). Even more awesome, the orchestra was conducted using Boost apps. If forming an orchestra just isn’t your thing, the Boost app also has drag & drop coding plus authentic sound / music. or equip the droids with tools and weapons to complete missions. Product page.
In all, it took the team approximately 3,148 hours to complete this orchestra, and as you can see, it was well worth the effort.
