New book: LEGO and Arduino Projects

Posted on Tuesday, February 5th, 2013 in Arduino, documentation, open source by the machinegeek

We’ve been informed of the new MAKE publication by authors John Baichtal, Matthew Beckler and Adam Wolf entitled LEGO and Arduino Projects: Projects for extending Mingdstorms NXT with open-source electronics. The purpose of the book is to acquaint beginners with the both Mindstorms and the Arduino platform and how they can be interfaced using open source components through a number of example projects.

The book requires the Bricktronics shield created for this book by Open Source Hardware kit maker Wayne and Layne. The shield breaks out various Arduino pins into four sensor and two motor control connectors for the Mindstorm.

If you’re a LEGO enthusiast or know someone who is, you’ll want to check out LEGO and Arduino Projects, which lists for $34.99 (or less) on Amazon.
