Which mechanical set?

  1. Apr 24, 2010 #1
    Hey everyone.:biggrin: I used to play with lego mindstorms (the older version) as a kid. I want to get back into that kind of thing and I was wondering if there was anything like that except more adult. I don't like the new lego mindstorms or meccano, since you put two peices together and you've done.

    How adult?
    vex kits used to be (maybe still are) US first as starter/protyping kits.

    sparkfun has all sorts of kits for all types of projects.

    Make magazine has a slew of DIY projects, usually made up of readily available items.

    Well I don't want anything which is required to have much knowledge of how to build motors and similar items. I want something where you have a set, build something, deconstruct it, and build something else and you can buy more parts to build better things.
