Mindstorm NXT 2.0 Twitter-controlled Robot
« on: March 16, 2010, 06:10:52 AM »

My name's Matt and I'm working on behalf of Nokia on a competition that asked hackers and modders to push Nokia's new device, the N900, to its limits.  The judges picked the three best submissions and one of those was 'NIKO The N900 Robot' - a robot controllable through commands on Twitter built out of Lego NXT Mindstorm 2.0.

Just wanted to let you all know about the project and to get some feedback from you guys .The team behind 'Niko' will be finishing their prototype in time to present to a panel of judges at CITA expo in Vegas next week in the hope of winning the $10k 1st prize! It's been a very quick turnaround given they had less than a month to complete the build and testing.

You can check out the videos, pictures and their overall progress so far here: http://blogs.nokia.com/pushn900/usa/category/niko/

Just so you know, I'm not personally building it, just helping in spreading the word about the project but if you have any technical questions, I'll happily try and get you guys answers!

Looking forward to seeing what you guys think of the project!
