    LEGO has unveiled the third-generation of their best-selling and ever-impressive programmable robot invention system at CES.  And, darn it, LEGO Mindstorms EV3 just made a downright amazing platform even better.

The first large-screen OLED TV available in the market, it brings 55 inches of OLED goodness straight to your [...]
