Extreme NXT: Extending the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT to the Next Level (Technology in Action)

Buy
Extreme NXT: Extending the LEGO MIDSTORMS NXT to the Next Level is for intermediate-level users of NXT who would like to advance their capabilities by learning some of the basics of electronics. Plenty of examples are provided, and easy-to-follow instructions are included for building over 15 different sensors.

This makes a great reference for the NXT hardware interfaces. Examples even come complete with multiple, alternative NXT languages. The book is also abundant with illustrations.

About the Author

Michael Gasperi has been an expert in LEGO Mindstorms sensors since they were first introduced in 1998. His popular web site and contributing chapters to Extreme Mindstorms (Apress, 2000) have guided many people through the process of building their own extensions to the kit. Philippe Hurbain got his first Mindstorms kit in 2000, and soon his electronics background pushed him to build new and original sensors for the RCX. His web site shows how to build these sensors and includes a lot of technical information on the original Mindstorms kit. In 2006, he was selected as a beta tester for the new NXT that he received several months before the official release. Isabelle Hurbain is Philippe's daughter. She's an engineer specialized in automatic control and is currently finishing her Ph.D. in computer science. She's also contributed to several other books as a translator and as a writer.

I suspected something was wrong with the “facts of life” as they were presented to me when I was a kid. Sure, I then spent a little over thirty years trying to be “normal” and make that square peg fit the round hole, “looking for a reason to believe.” But then there was a memorable day when I finally grew up and...

Historical Dictionary of Terrorism (Historical Dictionaries of Religions, Philosophies and Movements)
Terrorism has consistently dogged this supposedly modern and enlightened age. It has merely adopted new shapes and forms in keeping with the times. The causes have also evolved over the years, as old problems are solved and new ones created. Moreover, it has gone high-tech, like everything else. Thus, as this book convincingly shows, terrorism will...
