New Mindstorms NXT kit

My brother's a huge fan of Legos. He has a few sets that contain of 1500+ pieces. That's a lot of parts for something that some consider a child's toy. Well, Legos aren't a "toy" anymore. The upcoming April release of the new Mindstorm NXT set has a lot of big "kids" excited. I recently read this Wired article, which documents how Lego gathered a group of Mindstorm fans to help create the new version. Lego is actually encouraging hackers to develeop new software and sensors for the upcoming kit. I sure wish some other companies (cough, M$, cough) would take note and adopt this strategy with some of their products.
