I am wondering what the official reason behind the name of LEGO's latest MINDSTORMS robotics platform is. What does "EV3" stand for?
From the official EV3 FAQ:
What does EV3 stand for?
This is the third generation of the LEGO MINDSTORMS platform and the "EV" stands for evolution, hence EV3.
The first two generations referred to here are LEGO MINDSTORMS RCX and NXT, respectively.
