Control Lego Mindstorms Robots With A Free Android App

After watching several tantalising videos of Mindstorms robots being powered by Android phones, it'll bring you great delight to hear that you can create a similar setup at home with the free Mindstorms NXT app.

You'll need to own one of the robots of course (they cost around $US250) and have an Android phone running Eclair or Froyo, but once the MINDdroid app is downloaded, you'll be able to use the phone as a remote, wirelessly controlling the bot just by tilting the phone and taking advantage of the inbuilt accelerometers.
