Jehhaaaa... It is done!
My first Arduino device is born. Thanks to John! He learned me how to develop the driver for it. It is a DS1621 temperature sensor with 2-Wire (I²C) interface bus. And, YES! I have currently 17.5 degrees in my room.
I am impressed! The code will follow ASAP!
Since i am not lucky with the original LEGO NXT programmable brick because I need the programming environment provided by LEGO. Sure, there are nice implementations of alternative firmwares around the web but none of them are what I want. Sometimes they are using ugly languages like Java and sometimes the code for the firmware is not public available.
Now I have my solution. Move the LEGO NXT brick to your trash and build one by yourself using Arduino based boards.
Go, take a look! This is a really cool approach of a VPN implementation in just some few lines of code.
I have added a LEGO Mindstorms section to this site aiming on NXT development on the Linux platform. Go to the site here.
I will post Links to interesting projects and code there. If you have some interesting content for that site, please let me know!
Arghhhhhhh! I am very very sad that I could not travel to FOSDEM.
