Lego NXT Robot

First, this is not the type of Lego robots that we will be doing at the Scratch Club — sorry kids! This one is much more advanced, and has a much more difficult to use programming environment. Maybe we’ll start a robot club some other year!

This is from a seminar that I went to before school starts, and got some hands on time with the NXT platform. The Lego parts are nice. The programming tools are actually pretty bad, if you use the supplied NXTg environment. If we were to use this, we probably will use RobotC to do the actual programming.

The robot is drawing a figure 8 on the floor in the video, and you can see it did not completely return to the starting position due to drift on the carpet.
