NXT/RCX Snakes and Ladders Game

Name of Model: NXT to RCX LEGO Snakes And Ladders Robot
Created by: Mike Dobson / RoboticSolutions
Found at:

This robot plays the game of Snakes and Ladders (or Chute and Ladders, if you prefer). Light-sensors are used to allow the RCX and NXT to communicate (a clever trick that we're seeing more and more frequently as a cheap alternative to third party IR modules for the NXT). The NXT is the brains of the operation, and the RCX handles most of the motion in the game. Pieces are moved by a robotic arm (with well-placed pneumatics) mounted on gear racks, and there are even appropriate sound effects.
