Official announcement on HiTechnic and LEGO partnership

The partnership between LEGO and HiTechnic was announced at BrickFest, but you can read the official press release by clicking the "News and Announcements" link here, on HiTechnic's website.

I'd like to point out one sentence in the announcement: "HiTechnic's sensors also will integrate seamlessly within the NXT software programming environment..."

What this means is that you can expect NXT-G blocks that will drop-in just like a regular programming block and the configuration panel can be used to modify settings.

The first sensor from HiTechnic, the Compass Sensor, is scheduled for availability at the end of September 2006.
