NXT 2.0

Yesterday I finally dedicated some time to assembly my newest toy: a Lego Mindstorm NXT 2.0! I just made the basic drive rover with some sounds. I need now to explore more the capabilities of the NXT. I need to see what other options exist in terms of programming the brick.

As before, the internal language it’s a bit limited. I played with the original Mindstorm a few years ago. Already back then, I used for a few experiments a set of Lisp macros to generate some commands for the rover. There is XS in Lisp but I’m not sure if that is what I want. Something more like lejOS would be nicer (but in Common Lisp). Anyway, regardless of that, a mindstorm is always a cool toy :-)
