Coming soon from Mindsensors

NXShield for Arduino


This shield is designed to fit on an Arduino. It will have 4 NXT motor ports, 4 NXT sensor ports and several RC servo motor ports. It allows you to use the I2C port on the Arduino. However it will have only a single I2C bus.  That means it will work fine with multiple digital sensors as long as they all use a different address.  So you can’t have two Ultrasound sensors attached to this because they both use address 0x02.
The NXShield will attach to an Arduino Duemilanove or Uno or similar Arduino clones. (Picture shown here with a Duemilanove)
The programming for the NXShield will be on Arduino, using the usual Arduino C/C++ programming environment or ROBOTC (very soon).

Some mystery Android Product


Next week Mindsensors will announce a new Android product that I am sure you will like.  What will it be?  I guess you’re going to have to wait. I know what it is (and I’ve seen pictures of it)…but I’m not telling.
