The early touch-sensors were also of a different kind and shape compared to the later touch-sensors. Most notably, instead of featuring a removable cable, the cable was fixed just like the other sensors. These early sensors also featured longer cables. The Control Lab was designed for schools and educational use and was as a result not available to the mass market.
It was later replaced by the RCX and the educational release of the Robot Invention System which allowed for mobile inventions in addition to stationary inventions. It was aimed at an older audience as an early attempt of merging with robotics and Lego. The brick shares many, especially software, features with the RCX but differs in appearance and technical specifications: It talks the same protocol as the RCX but cannot communicate directly to it due to IR vs RF but with a repeater a computer with 2 serial ports and a simple program they can communicate indirectly.
Sold as part of the Barcode Truck kit.

This unit was the first programmable brick or Pbrick. It features a single motor, a single touch sensor and a light sensor. It is programmed by setting it to 'learn' and using the light sensor to feed barcoded commands. The command set is very limited. Since barcode is just a series of variances in light, this form of command entry was dubbed VLL Visual Light Link and has been used in several later Lego models. Lego also released a blue computer called the Scout , which has 2 sensor ports, 2 motor ports plus one extra if linked with a Micro Scout using a fiber optic cable , and a built in light sensor, but no PC interface.
It comes with the Robotics Discovery Set. The Scout can be programmed from a collection of built-in program combinations. In order to program the Scout, a user must enable "power mode" on it. The Scout can store one program. The Scout only supports passive external sensors, which means that only touch, temperature and other unpowered sensors can be used. The analog-to-digital converters used in the Scout only have a resolution of 8 bits in contrast to the bit converters of the RCX.
There was a plan for Lego to create a booster set that allows you to program the Scout from a computer with a software such as RCX code. However, due to the complexity of this project, it was abandoned. The Scout brick must have all of its options set to "off". The Micro Scout was added as an entry level to Lego robotics. It is a very limited Pbrick with a single built-in light sensor and a single built-in motor. Like the Scout, the Micro Scout is also based on a microcontroller from Toshiba. Spybotics is a robotics package. It consists of four colour-coded robots called Spybots, a programming language with which to control the Spybots, and ten simulated missions.
The Intelligent Brick is the "brain" of a Mindstorms machine. It lets the robot autonomously perform different operations. Software is sold separately, and the Education Resource Set for the best use. It includes a light sensor, an ultrasonic sensor, a sound sensor, three lamps and a pair of touch sensors. The first set consists of about pieces, and the extra set consists of about pieces. The Education Version is most suited for those who have older versions of Mindstorms sets around, mostly thanks to its three converter cables. It contains pieces includes sensors and motors , two Touch Sensors, an Ultrasonic Sensor, and introduced a new Color Sensor.
EV3 is a further development of the NXT.
The EV3 can be controlled by smart-devices. It can boot an alternative operating system from a microSD card, which makes it possible to run ev3dev , a Debian -based operating system. Mindstorms kits are also sold and used as an educational tool, originally through a partnership between Lego and the MIT Media Laboratory. One of the differences between the educational series, known as the "Challenge Set", and the consumer series, known as the "Inventor Set", is that it includes another touch sensor and several more gearing options.
However, there are several other standouts between the two versions that one may not recognize unless doing a side by side analysis of what each offers. The version sold through LEGO Education is designed for a deeper level of learning or teaching that often happens in a classroom or school setting. This includes 48 tutorials to walk the learner through the basics of coding to more sophisticated and complex concepts such as data logging.

It's always a good idea to reach out to a LEGO Education consultant to inquire of other differences as there are several more. There is a strong community of professionals and hobbyists of all ages involved in the sharing of designs, programming techniques, creating third-party software and hardware , and contributing of other ideas associated with Lego Mindstorms. Lego also encourages sharing and peering by making software code available for downloading and by holding various contests and events. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

For the past 6 years, faculty members at Tufts University have developed two different software packages between LabVIEW and Lego data acquisition systems. As students design and build their projects, they are motivated to learn the math and science they need to optimise their project. Both college students and kindergartners respond to this motivator.
In the paper, we explain how we designed software to complement these projects in allowing automation and animation. Finally, we will show how we have used LabVIEW and Lego data acquisition to teach elementary school science, freshman engineering, instrumentation and experimentation, and how college seniors and graduate students have used both the hardware and software to solve various data acquisition problems.
