Yesterday I made a small 10-minutes project. A Netduino in a box with a speaker and simple switch:

It's on the door of my brother's office right now, since he has got his 30th birthday. As soon as he opens the door it'll play Happy Birthday with my speaker class :D

Just a small project, but worth sharing I suppose ;)

Aaaaargh! Stefan: a vote for you, but if I were your brother I'll throw the whole box out of the window! Good work, indeed, anyway! Cheers

hahaha good thing the windows are closed here.

But he actually liked the idea, and it worked! :D

I appreciate the use of a Meccano part (or is it Merkur by any chance?) Posted Image

LOL! It's original Meccano, bought it in England. Got loads of it, and one day I will build a netduino-powered Meccano-robot ;)

FYI there is also another company, german based (near Czech!), that offers several mechanical-electric hybrid kits.
Watch here: eitech

I wanted to buy a small kit to play with, but I have still a big box of Lego in my room. My wife is asking me whether prefer her or these stuffs..."Leg...OPS!...YOU honey, what else?"

Cheers

Lego Next uses an ARM9 CPU, I guess. It is able to run MS robotics framework. Anyway, I have bought a Lego because it is easy to build mechanical parts, then robotize them. I have a primary school project in mind: my kids is loving computer, so I'd like to teach the children how to move some easy step using Lego and Netduino...the road is veeeeeery long, though. Cheers

Lego Mindstorms NXT brick uses AT91SAM7S256 (and ATmega48 as 'signal co-processor'), see the schematic. You can use Microsoft Robotics Studio to control a Lego NXT robot, I don't think Lego can actually run it (RDS requires Windows CE or XP operating systems).

Learning roads are always very long. It's ment to be that way. We learn until the very end and beyond I suppose. But this is getting very philosophic :)

Hmmmm....

I am pretty confused...
This MSDN article teach how to control a Mindstorm devices using RS, but that's clear that the hardware is a near cousin of a Netduino...

Uh-oh...I have a chilling suspect...
Does that article referring about a PC is a master that controls the robot via Mindstorm interface?
If so, it's like throwing 300Eur in the can...

Cheers

Would it not run standalone without PC? that would be sad indeed. Luckely I bought a NDuino :)

These LEGO® MINDSTORMS NXT tutorials demonstrate how to control and interact with the LEGO® MINDSTORMS NXT from Microsoft Visual Programming Language (VPL).

The LEGO® MINDSTORMS NXT provides Bluetooth and USB communication between the PC and the NXT. This section describes how to get the NXT and Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio (RDS) to talk to each other.

LOL. You can still build quite competitive NXT robots Posted Image

The Lego control unit ('brick') runs independently, once programmed...

English is *not* my language, that is as sure as once I'll die...
...but it's look ambiguous too.
At first glance I have understand that you may create a visual program with MSRS, then deploy it (via bluetooth or usb) to the brick. Once programmed, the robot will work without any PC...

Sadness is pervading my soul...mixed with happiness because I had not purchased a Mindstorm!
Ciao

How many netduino minis does that make ?
Started with C in 1985, moved to Vb3 ... to vb6 and stopped. Now started with .Net and learning C# and VB.net and wishing VB.net was on MF !

It's just the earlier released speaker-code and a release button ;)
