Nippon did it again: new NXT book



Masashi Ishikawa, editor at Mainichi Communications Inc., sent me the following note on a new NXTbook: The book entitled "LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT GRAY BOOK" will publish on the end of this month.

Following is the announcement of that. But I'm sorry that site was written by Japanese only.

http://book.mycom.co.jp/book/978-4-8399-2301-3/978-4-8399-2301-3.shtml

And there is the contents of the book.
Chapter1 NXT SOFTWARE
Chapter2 MULTIPLE NXT
Chapter3 UTILITIES
Chapter4 NBC
Chapter5 RCX
Chapter6 PC
Chapter7 TWO-LEGGED (Betarex)

Maybe some of our Japanese-speaking readers might be willing to provide some further information that can be found on the site?

Domo arigato!

Matthias,

I had to edit the post a little... the formatting was messed up and the text was spilling over into the menu bar on right side of screen.
