New Sensor - NXT2Wifi

One of our contributors Danny Benedettelli,  has been working on a new sensor for the NXT, the NXT2WiFi



Now there are quite a few other WiFi sensors for the NXT out there, but this packs a whole lot more on board, over and above basic communication via WiFi.
  • On board webserver, which means you can create your very own web interface directly on the unit itself
  • Control your NXT from any device from anywhere in the world
  • Lithium-Polymer Batter that can be charged over USB
  • Can handle TCP, UDP Sockets, SMTP(email) and SNTP(clock/calendar)
  • Allows you to directly control a robot from iPhone, iPod and iPads (as well as any other mobile device)

Now he has a protoype already working, but is going down the crowdsourcing route to fund a first run of 100 units.  Here's your chance to get in early and help make it a reality.  Once he gets to his funding goal, the orders will go ahead.

There are several tiers of support you can choose:

  • € 10 or more - Public thanks on project website, and one of his LEGO MINDSTORMS books in digital format.
  • € 80 or more - Public thanks on project website, and 1 (one) NXT2WIFI device for free. (instead of 100€ + shipping cost)
  • € 500 or more - Public thanks on project website, and 8 (eight) NXT2WIFI devices for free. (instead of 800€ + shipping cost)
  • € 1000 or more - Public thanks on project website, and 18 (eighteen) NXT2WIFI devices for free. (instead of 1800€ + shipping cost)
