video: controlling a Lego NXT robot with an Android phone

Lizzie is controlling a Lego NXT robot with an Android phone over bluetooth. She’s using an app called MindDroid on my Galaxy Nexus, and the robot is a basic 4-wheel-drive with two motors like this one. Lizzie and I have built NXT robot’s before but this is the first time we’ve integrated a remote control.

a short film of Lizzie and me programming a Lego NXT robot we built. The program has the robot move forward till its touch sensor is bumped, say ouch, reverse and turn a few degrees, then go forward again (loops five times).
