Pybricks is Python for smart LEGO® hubs. Now you can make your LEGO Technic, LEGO City, and LEGO MINDSTORMS creations truly come alive.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced builder or programmer, you can start writing code with Pybricks in no time.
- June 23rd, 2021: Make your LEGO System & LEGO Technic creations come alive with Python coding using Pybricks
What makes Pybricks different?
Pybricks provides a super easy and powerful robotics coding experience across the full spectrum of modern LEGO sets. Sensors, motors, and programmable hubs work the same on all platforms, with the same code.
Your code runs autonomously on the hub, which is up to 100x faster than usual. And because Pybricks was designed to run even on low-spec devices, there’s a ton of spare CPU power and memory on the bigger hubs.
Sensors and motors operate at much higher precision, giving you full control of your creation. Whether you want to build great First LEGO League robots, smart train layouts, or stable self-balancing robots, Pybricks can do it.
Finally, there’s a clean and fast code editor that lets you run and stop scripts in a fraction of a second. No large app downloads or complicated command line tools required. It works on just about any computer, so you’re not stuck on a tiny screen.
Best of all, Pybricks is fully powered by the community. It’s fully documented and there’s an ever-growing collection of example projects and additional tools shared by Pybricks users all around the world.
Pybricks is open source
Pybricks is free and open source. It’s released under the MIT license. You can read, try, and even change our code via our GitHub page.
Pybricks builds on MicroPython, which is a super-efficient version of Python that can run on the microcontrollers inside the smart hubs.
The Pybricks team welcomes ideas and code contributions. Whether you’re a new student, teacher, or a seasoned programmer, we want to hear from you!
