Start your Brains

Welcome to NXTidea... a blog dedicated to Lego Robotics.
Mindstorms NXT RIS Scout Spybot trains and more

This is my first blog and I can not garuntee that it will remain a blog. My goal is to eventually create a clearing house for NXT ideas. Not a repository for complete inventions, but suggestions for componenets that can be mixed and matched in YOUR NXT idea.

I have been an observer of the old RIS lego community but felt like I was chasing coat tails. Now that I am aboard at the begining I hope to help shape how ideas are shared. My passion is to teach. I will be working on material for Teachers and welcome suggestions. Alas that is also why I am so fixated on ideas. Durring my RIS years I was heavily into year round university (many years) and as such usually could do nothing more than look at my RIS kits and imagine what they could do. Without time to build I found I was equally facinated by what was possible. Hours of daydreaming on the bus have resulted in many ideas and a passion to share both ways with Lego enthusiasts.

You can find comments from me on www.bnxt.com and on thenxtstep.com. Filip of bnxt has asked me to co-contribute. I am not sure how that would work so I signed up for a blog account. If there are no more posts here, then check there.

I am hopeing to use the NXTwiki that Filip posted about to realize my dream of modular ideas on the web and this site to show case the best and hold discussions. I hope to also write articles if anything about Lego Robotics needs mentioning. I am very interested in Legacy work so anyone interested in discussing how cross platform communication is possible (ie Spybots, RIS etc working with each other) please let me know.

Thanks for visiting, come again
