Search the forums with Google Search: This site was born out of the ashes of NXTasy. It is currently run by a small team: We're hoping to create a community that shares our enthusiasm for the LEGO MINDSTORMS Platform. Welcome to the MindBOARDS website!
NXT Programming Software NXT Programming Software These are different ways of writing programs that will execute on the LEGO NXT brick. This list doesn't include all features, but should include enough information to provide a good starting point for you to figure out which software best suits your needs. Notes

A note to the reader: some of these links may be unreachable. I'm leaving them here if only to give credit where credit is due. Newer items are added to the bottom of each section, so look there for news. The LEGO® MINDSTORMS(tm) (#9719) product is a robot-kit-in-a-box. It consists of a computer module (the "RCX(tm)"), and an inventory of many TECHNICS(tm) parts. LEGO MINDSTORMS Internals
Science Through LEGO Engineering Curricula The following four curricula are designed to introduce students (in Grades 3 to 5) to various science concepts through design-based LEGO projects. The first several lessons of each unit engage students in scientific explorations sometimes using the LEGO tool-set as a resource. The students are then charged with an open-ended design challenge where they use the science they learned alongside the engineering design process to design and build LEGO creations that meet criteria that the students can observe and test.

Team Hassenplug Simple Windows Bluetooth Remote Pretty early on, I made a pretty simple Windows application, that could control an NXT over Bluetooth. I really haven't done much with it, but someone just asked me about it, so I figured I'd post it. There aren't many instructions. There is a very narrow button to the left of the "C" motor button.
The Lego Mindstorms NXT kit is an amazing upgrade to the original Lego Mindstorms product. While the building blocks are not the traditional plastic stud blocks everyone is used to, the new construction parts allow for some very complex designs. Additionally, Microsoft Robotics Studio supports the Lego NXT kit right out of the box, so it's quite easy to get up and going using MSRS with the Lego kit to start coding a robot in C# or VB.NET. With that in mind, this article will demonstrate how to use MSRS with the simple TriBot robot that can be easily built using the instructions included in the Lego NXT kit.
