NI LabVIEW Toolkit for LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT
Also announced today was the NI LabVIEW Toolkit for LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT. With this software, LabVIEW users can create and download VIs to operate LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT, the next generation of the popular LEGO robotic system released last week. Third-party software and hardware developers also can use the toolkit to create native blocks for MINDSTORMS NXT software, which is based on LabVIEW.
