A memo of my attempt at going virtual with my Lego bricks using my linux boxes: mlcad, ldview and suchlikes.
NXT: Here we enter another territorry, but I haven't got enough time lately
A Free ROBOT ought to do MORE, won't you AGREE?
This place is my own little webspace dedicated to hack around the LEGO "8527" MindStorms NXT set using only free, open-source software. Not only does it fit my obsessions with FOSS, it's also:
- Fun because you have to overcome issues, gather a community, and work harder to get it done: that's rewarding, as it is always when you achieve stuff that other people don't; [but the "hard" part is a joke, it's actually quite easy, even for kids]
- Quite Ethical, since I only use FOSSoftware, but that's more of a political standpoint/debate and we shall no more speak further about this side of it;
- True to The spirit of Robotics Programming because you will have to drop this NXT-G so-called "Graphical Environment" and start dirty your hands C-like, and that get us back to Reason One: Fun. It is where the fun begins. With a Free Mind, a Free Source. Oh, and then: did I mention A Free Robot?
Feel free to contribute, if like me you are freeing your Brick with a GNU/Linux box using OpenSource Software - anyone can register, but only a valid email will allow editing; sorry, I just cleared about 4.000+ spam MySQL entries...
Quick Links: Snippets - - Docs - - Howtos - - Categories - - Links - - Wiki spirit
By software, scripts and graphical interfaces, the objective is to program our "Free Bots" doing fun things in either nbc, nxc, python languages. Care to join? In true Wiki spirit, there is a need to register to participate because I took too much spam, alas. Registering allows you to dig deeper into the inner workings of the Wiki; should you wish to involve yourself with the administration of this resource, please drop me a line here
While this is just the starting point, lets organise ourselves: If you want to publish something here, welcome, most warmly; at the moment knowledge is to be categorized between links, Howto, Software, Hardware and Snippets. Feel free to self-categorize your contributions, I'll do the cleaning later!
