Gumbrix: Gumstix LEGO controller

gumbrix

Derek Anderson enjoys building robot prototypes using the LEGO Mindstorms kit, but he found his progress hampered by the RCX’s minimal processing power and connections. He decided to build a custom LEGO style housing for a Gumstix waysmall computer. He has experience milling custom LEGO parts so this was an easy first step; he does wish he would have used a material more rigid than Delrin though. Derek has several future articles planned to cover how to integrate and interact with the system. I’d prefer to wait for the new Mindstorms NXT coming out in August or March if I’m lucky.
