Control the NXT with a keyboard


I get a lot of emails from users who what to use the keyboard to control a robot. So I decided to write a (new) Bluetooth remote that will allow you to do just that. With the remote you can also select from a variety of different sensors and read it's value with a single press of a button. Download the remote from my website. Hope you Enjoy

WOW! Thank you. Worked without a hitch. I believe the NXT should have come with this software. Very handy for debugging sensor values, testing motor speeds, etc.

I agree - it sounds like a really nice application. I'd test it out... but there's not a Mac version :(.

Hmmm, if it's in C++, couldn't you release the source code/text file, and then people could compile it to work on their Macs/Linuxes? I know you can get a C compiler for Mac, and Linux comes with one (well, Ubuntu dose), but I'm not entirely sure whether C compilers could compile C++. I doubt it. But, there's probably free stuff around somewhere. If you released the code, I could try to compile it for Mac. But if you have a Mac, then you'd probably be better doing it than me!

Oh well. Thanks anyway, Anders/Mr. Soborg! I might be a getting a bluetooth dongle so I can run bluetooth stuff on my PC, so will try it then. Is that C++ builder free?

Thanks a ton, this is the only thing I've been doing with my NXT for about 3 days. I had a bit of a problem figuring out which com port the NXT was connected to but once I figured that out it worked wonderfully. Thanks.
