Lego is finally shipping their "Mindstorms NXT" product. Mine just arrived this week (I preordered it in the spring when I found out it was coming out) It's a bit pricey right now (about $400 CAD) but hey, it's Lego...)
It looks like they have radically rethought the entire Mindstorms thing, and have moved away from the "brick" model, to a more refined form of the Lego Technic system.
The result looks (at least from a few initial forays) reasonably robust, and the programming environment is a major improvement over the original mindstorms tools.
(For the Mac users, yes, the tool software works on both Macs and PC's - and seems to do so quite respectably)
