Robotics Monday: NXT Image Scanner

Name of Model: NXT Image Scanner

OK, so scanners have been done with the older Mindstorms RCX units before, but look! NXT! Color! This one is awesome. The resolution isn't particularly great, but you can use Bluetooth to move the images immediately from the NXT's programmable brick to the full-size computer. Come to think of it, I think that the RCX-based scanner I saw was actually just part of a copy machine where it scanned an image with one RCX and then told a second RCX to place the pen in the dark spots. Anyway - this is an excellent model, and there are instructions, photos, details, more video, and programs available at the website above.
