Using LEGO Mindstorms RIS (RCX) KIT with Windows7

Installing LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Invention System (RIS) on to a Windows7 PC is frustrating to say the least, as I’ve just discovered this while setting up my son’s computer to allow him to program my old RCX’s.

Wot-NXT: DottyWot & SpottyWot?

The WotWots is filmed in Australia at the Melbourne Zoo, and follows the adventures of two adorable siblings from outer space, SpottyWot and DottyWot. These delightful creatures come to explore planet earth in their steam-powered spaceship and land themselves in the middle of a zoo. All their adventures are built on one central ingredient which defines the series – the joy of learning and discovery.

Mindstorms 8 Input RCX Touch Sensor Multiplexer

I have built a Lego Mindstorms NXT, 8 Input RCX Touch Sensor Multiplexer for use with the old style RCX Touch Sensors. I personally think these retro Touch Sensors are far, far easier to use in models due to their physical size. I really don't know what the Lego Designers where thinking when they designed the NXT Touch Sensor!

I have one of Mindsensors' new TouchMux's, but it doesn't work very well with the legacy RCX style Touch Sensors.
