Do you own a Lego Mindstorms? If so what have you done with it lately? Nothing? Come on! The Lego Mindstorms NXT is one of the greatest home robotics project kits that currently exists in the market. I found this nice "classic" (circa 2007) Mindstorms NXT project stored away in my browser favorites; Krystian Majewski (design student from Germany and robotics nut) set up simple instructions on how to get a "JenToo" or "Tribot" Mindstorms design to use RADAR.
You can actually use this RADAR on any other Mindstorms NXT design that you can come up with or even improve on it to do something out of this world. The following is all you need to start this project:
- LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT KIT
- LINK TO "JENTOO" MINDSTORMS NXT ROBOT
- LINK TO MINDSTORMS NXT RADAR CODE
- SPARE TIME TO USE YOUR MIND
This is just one of endless amount of other robotics projects and experiments that you can create with this kit. Enjoy.
