Creative Projects with LEGO Mindstorms free pdf With its emphasis on building technical skills and having fun, LEGO Mindstorms has become a popular "toy" for technological tinkerers of all ages. This book-CD package helps you build a variety of exciting robots, and in the process expands your programming knowledge, enhances your problem-solving skills, and boosts your creativity. Creative Projects with LEGO(R) Mindstorms' walks you through the creation of several different kinds of robots: basic mobile robots, kinetic sculptures, robotic animals, data-gathering robots, and robots that can communicate over the Internet. As the book progresses, the robots become increasingly sophisticated and the programming becomes more complex. Specific projects include: *Walking Dog *Line Follower *Animal Feeder *The Painter *Bubble Machine *Flashlight Follower *Smart Acrobot *Giraffe The ultimate goal of this book, however, is not just to help you build the book's model robots, but to transcend the instructions to create robots of your own invention. With that in mind, the author explores the inspiration behind each robot's design, the problem-solving that went into its creation, and further modifications you can incorporate into your own projects. Clear color photos illustrate each step in the design process, and the accompanying CD-ROM features instructions, color movies of robots in action, and code examples in RCX, NQC, ROBOLAB, and Visual Basic for sixteen robots. NQC software and a demonstration version of the ROBOLAB software are also included on the CD. You will thoroughly enjoy building the projects in this book, and you'll learn a great deal about the inspiration, design, and construction of robots. 0201708957B04062001
