Mindsensors EV3 USB Console Adapter

Mindsensors LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 USB console adapter It will come as no surprise that Mindsensors, purveyors of cool stuff, have created a very easy to use LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 USB console adapter.  The EV3 has a serial console, which is accessible on the 1st Sensor Port.  This small device will allow you to simply plug an NXT/EV3 cable in one end and a USB mini cable in the other.  This will make debugging things on the EV3 much easier because you don’t need a network connection set up to access the brick.  I’ve used a home made (not by me) adapter board up until now, but this is so much better!

It will retail for $19.99 and will start shipping around the 3rd week of August.  I hope to have mine within the next 2 weeks or so (it’s being sent to me next week).

Mindsensors can lay claim to having made the first 3rd party dedicated EV3 peripheral, congratulations!
