    Introduction

    LEGO Mindstorms NXT is a programmable robotics kit released by Lego in late July 2006.
    It replaced the first-generation Lego Mindstorms kit, which was called the Robotics Invention System. (RCX) The base kit ships in two versions: the Retail Version (set #8527) and the Education Base Set (set #9797).

    It comes with the NXT-G programming software, or optionally LabVIEW for Lego Mindstorms. A variety of unofficial languages exist, such as NXC, NBC, leJOS NXJ, and RobotC. A new version of the set, the new Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0, was released on August 1, 2009, featuring a color sensor and other upgraded capabilities.

    There is now a new Lego Mindstorms Robot, called the EV3.

      In the beginning

      In an unusual move, the software, firmware and drivers are all downloadable from the Lego website.

      Software to program
      Firmware to run the brick
      Drivers to connect the brick to the machine

      The drivers are called fantom and I needed to reinstall them over the supplied drivers
      Software, firmware, drivers
      Beware the clicking brick syndrome
