They’re used in three places, under the ultrasonic sensor and one either side of the NXT PBrick. The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Idea Book by the Contributors of the NXT Step Blog offers 8 projects with complete building and programming instructions as well as some theory chapters on building and programming. Laurens Valk is the author of several popular MINDSTORMS books including The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Discovery Book. Whatever you call them, you’ll find them here: clear, detailed, step-by step, full color, printable instructions.

Robot Square is a robotics blog providing news and tutorials for building robots with LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 and NXT, and occasionally the Raspberry Pi and the Beaglebone Black. Still I was concerned to print out the full instructions with the grey background. This book is an excellent resource for learning techniques and getting some fresh ideas. The Idea Book : Great ideas for new robots, including RaSPy, the robot that plays Rock, Paper, Scissors.

I have a BrickLink store and the first person to post instructions in LDD or direct me to the website that has the exact instructions, I’ll give away ANY ONE mini poly-bag set to that person. Every single project on this site includes image based instructions with minimal text. At the heart of this ingenious concept is the NXT – an über-intelligent, USB-friendly, computer-controlled ‘brick’ that acts as your robot’s brain.

The new hardware of NXT 2.0 includes of an NXT micro-controller, 3 Interactive Servo Motors – with built-in Rotation Sensors, 1 Ultrasonic Sensor, 2 Touch Sensors and the new Color Sensor with triple functionality, which operates as a Color Sensor for identifying different colors. Prefabricated programs can also be downloaded for some of the project builds including the Alpha Rex humanoid robot. More than two dozen fun and challenging projects using the next generation of LEGO® Mindstorms and the Java programming language are included in this guide. Sensor is about 0.5 stud off the standard grid, so you have space before him 2.5 studs.

Retail has the instructions for the models and the educational version has some exercises/instructions. LEGO Mindstorms NXT is a buildable robot kit in only the way LEGO could do it. The NXT 1.0 and 2.0 kits come with a NXT block which is essentially a LEGO block programmable chip incorporated. He has been inventing robots with the MINDSTORMS NXT sets since their introduction, and one of his robot designs appears on the NXT 2.0 packaging. The file below is one screenshot per page of the LEGO Mindstorms software running on a Win7 guest on VirtualBox on Ubuntu. The projects here could keep a future engineer building and rebuilding for countless weeks.

Projects included are PunchBot, a robot programmed using old-fashioned punch cards; M, a robot that sorts M&M candies by color; NXT Dragster, a super-fast racecar; RoboLock, a security system for your robots; and more. The Art of LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT-G Programming by Terry Griffin teaches readers how to create powerful NXT-G programs with NXT-G version 1.0 or 2.0.

In short there is only one NXT brick and it does not matter which NXT kit you have.

The initial price of a LEGO Mindstorm NXT kit may seem a bit daunting but considering it has a multitude of projects than can be built and the interactive programming component, it actually exceeds the value of most other robotic kits in the marketplace. The community of LEGO Mindstorms enthusiasts is an extremely enthusiastic and helpful group. Microsoft RDS is free, offers visual programming but uses technique 2 to control the robot.

LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Thinking Robots by Daniele Benedettelli serves up a challenge for advanced NXT users. During my talks with several of them, I was directed to a few sites that have user created projects that can be completed by using the pieces in one or more of the existing NXT Mindstorms sets.

Some of the best project kit instructions for the NXT 1.0 include the electric guitar, the line follower and the dog sled team. Laurens Valk is a member of the MINDSTORMS Community Partners who help test and develop new NXT products. A diverse set of projects is accompanied by building tips, programming code, complete 3D-rendered building instructions, and hundreds of illustrations.

I needed instructions printed so that my 7year old daughter can assemble the AlphaRex robot.

I don’t know if I’m allowed to post BrickLink info, so I’ll just send my store info to whomever finds me the instructions.

LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 is an incredible updated kit for building and programming robots and this book introduces a diverse set of projects, building tips, programming code, complete 3-D rendered building instructions, and hundreds of illustrations to guide engineers and amateurs alike. It would be nice if you could send it to me. It’s a shame that they are not available from the official lego website.
