RS485 Blocks by Andy MilluzziGive it up for my main man Andy Milluzzi who, with some help from John Hansen, created the world’s first NXT-G block that leverages the NXT’s RS485 communication abilities! Well done.

What does that mean?  Well now you can connect two bricks, back-to-back with a cable connected between their S4 ports and communicate at a blinding 921600 bps!  That’s quite a bit faster than regular Bluetooth and without the overhead of those mailboxes.

This opens up a whole new world of possible sensors! One of them being the new Dexter Industries NXTBees. How cool is that?

You can download the block from here: [LINK]. You will need at least version 1.05 of the LEGO NXT firmware to use this.
