Infrared beamer? Don't they realize that has already been pretty well tested with LEGO Mindstorms 1.0-2.5 and it really stinks? Tell your robot to turn around away from the transmitter, whoops! no more signal!

I much prefer using the Bluetooth of LEGO Mindstorms NXT. That's basically the most important element of the system which makes my web-controllable wireless robot ( ) possible.

Which, by the way, after I spent $91 on 4 500mAh rechargeable 9V's + charger for the wireless camera, is now back online and ready for you pesky slashdotters.

Journal Journal: Homebrew status update

The homebrew that I made turned out pretty good. Two main problems: it wasn't very alcoholic and the carbonation was a little low (I wonder if it is still considered beer ;) ). Tasted good though.

Made my first batch of homebrew today. It is fermenting as I write. It was fun and easy. Goto Brew Your Own for more information.
