Back in June 2019, the LEGO® Group released a new variant of their Boost robotics system. Unlike the original Creative Toolbox, the new kit was themed. Named the Star Wars Droid Commander, the kit features three buildable and programmable robots from the Star Wars franchise. With 1177 bricks, you can build R2-D2, a Gonk droid, and a mouse droid. Kids can develop their coding skills by programming the droids to complete over 40 different missions. However, as it turns out, they are able produce a LEGO® Boost droid symphony as well!
Today, the LEGO® Group has released a video showing the potential these droids can have beyond the 40 missions they come with. It also proves that the simplified Boost coding platform is not just child’s play! In this video, 95 Boost powered droids play the Star Wars theme using 42 actual instruments. According the press release from the LEGO® Group, the whole production took 3,148 hours to complete!
