Sample Page: LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Idea Book

Here's another sample page from our upcoming MINDSTORMS NXT Idea Book, published by No Starch Press. (Click on the graphic for an enlarged view).

While the book includes an introduction to the NXT as well as chapters on theory and design, its main focus is on detailed building and programming instructions.

Over the last few months, we've received lots of feedback from youth, parents, teachers, beginners and others who say, "We need more detailed building and programming instructions!" This book aims to meet that need.

Several readers of this blog have asked for more details about this book. More information will be forthcoming soon. In the meantime, you'll see more sample pages like this one in the weeks ahead.

those look like dual ball caster frames in the photo? Is that right?

I know what robot that is from. :)

All I'll say is that it's a neat design, and I'll be building one with my son soon.

There's a nice video of this creation posted here under Beach Buggy.
Warning: you may not be able to get that catchy toon out of your head for a few days :)
