Hi Mephisto,

I think that could be a very interesting project! These new Mindstorms are far more advanced than the old version. We did talk about some of the projects that are out there in the past: http://users.boardnation.com/~chesscomputers/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=463;start=20

With this new version, I hope someone will build a usable robot. The one that Andy built is great but it is more of a proof of concept than a final product. If you watch the demo videos you will see that it takes the rook something like 3 minutes to make the initial move!

Best regards,

Ismenio

Hi
Can the new 2006 Lego Mindstorms NXT possibly be our new chess robot?

Super exciting technology: The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT building set offers numerous possibilities for building and programming a robot designed to the child’s own ideas and wishes. The first LEGO robot can be assembled and programmed within only 30 minutes. New technical features and more even more powerful sensors are also specially intended as an attraction for experienced robot builders. The sensors enable the robot to react automatically to sound, light and movement. The "brain" of the new system is the NXT chip, an autonomous 32-bit LEGO microprocessor, which can be programmed using a PC, or, for the first time ever, a Mac. A real innovation: The use of Bluetooth technology means the robot, which can be designed as animal, vehicle or machine, can even be controlled remotely, e.g. from a mobile phone or PDAego
