My name is Eric Burdo. Some of you may know me from Brick Labs. http://www.brick-labs.com/ I was talking to Jim the other day to see if he wanted to reprint any of my articles from Brick Labs (since Brick Labs will be retired on or about the 10th of April). Instead, Jim offered me a position as a guest writer.
I will be moving some of the articles from Brick Labs over to this site, and any future LEGO contributions will be made here, for your reading enjoyment. If there are any particular articles on Brick Labs that you want, please post a link in the comments. I’ll migrate them over, and possible update them if I can.

I tried to get into the LEGO beta program for the NXT, but alas, fate smiled on others… so, I had to wait. My wife bought me a NXT kit for my birthday back in September. My son and I have been dabbling with robots since then.

URBI is free, with open source interfaces, and you don't have to change
the original firmware to use it. We have a forum also to discuss
technical matters here:
