OpenElectrons (Mindsensors) have released the NXShield which attaches directly to an Arduino. The NXShield allows you to connect NXT motors, NXT Sensors and RC Servo motors, along with I2C devices. Some NXShield versions have headers to connect other Arduino shields on top of the NXShield.

NXShield Plus Arduino Uno

Depending on the sNXShield used you can either any of the following Arduino Boards:
  • Arduino Uno, Uno R3
  • Arduino Duemilanove
  • chipKIT Uno32
  • Arduino Mega 1280
  • Arduino Mega 2560, 2560-R3 or ADK
  • chipKIT Max32
