NXT Tutorial This tutorial for LEGO Mindstorms NXT is divided in two sections. The “Essentials” are things every NXT programmer should know. Some of these movies have exercises directly under them. It’s important to do these exercises, not just assume you “get it.” The “Advanced” section is for reference purposes. These lessons assume you have a basic robot with two drive motors, a touch sensor and a light sensor. If you need to run this tutorial at a location with poor internet service, you can download a special copy here.

Lego Mindstorms NXT Por supuesto, el robot Mindstorms también puede facilitarnos la vida en el hogar. Aquí os presentamos dos proyectos que lo demuestran. El primero tiene que ver con esos apretones que pueden llegar en cualquier momento: El segundo, es un dispensador de refrescos, que nunca vienen mal. En el proyecto realizado hay que pagar por cada lata. Nosotros pensamos que no estaría mal meter esta máquina en el baño y, ya que nuestros amigos nos van a dejar la casa oliendo a caca, por lo menos que nos dejen una propinilla por olores y perjuicios mientras se toman la Coca-Cola. Este proyecto puede dar mucho miedo a los que tengan aracnofobia, porque han montado un bicho gigantesco que puede hacer que más de uno se suba de un salto a la primera silla que encuentre. Parece que ahora también los robots han decidido buscarse la vida haciendo equilibrios circenses. A algunas personas les gusta llevar siempre la cuenta de su riqueza, al puro estilo Tío Gilito.

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. Here is what I found: Holding the connector as the picture shows. White wire - Used with the black wire, this pin provides power to the motor.
