Hacking the LEGO NXT If you are a millionaire and able to buy a LEGO Mindstorms NXT, you may find kind of difficult to hack it or create homemade sensors. I believe you already noticed the particular jack that comes with the NXT. It looks like a telephone jack, but the latch is located in one side, making difficult to connect any other cable. That is not a big problem; filling off the latch from a 6-wires telephone connector (RJ-12) may do the job. Once I was able to connect a telephone cable to the NXT, I started to test the signals. Holding the connector as the picture shows. White wire - Used with the black wire, this pin provides power to the motor. NXT® plugs crimping tool NXT® plugs crimping tool Mindsensors sells NXT-style RJ12 connectors. Unfortunately regular RJ12 crimping tools are not suited for them because of their offset latch. See also Michael Brandl crimping tool. R J McNamara modified another model of crimping tool, see here. Using the crimping tool Don't make too long cables. 1 meter is about the maximum recommended length to guarantee proper working of all sensors and motors connected to your NXT.
