My Mindsensors GlideWheel-M decided to die on me at a most in convenient time whilst building the Mark II version of my Bin Emptying Robot. I was forced to use limit switches instead. After talking to Deepak Patil from Mindsensors, he suggested I take a knife in hand and disassemble it. The process was straight forwad enough, provided you kept the blade to the edge of the sensor. You are restricted to around 5mm at the sensors edge. Go any further in and you risk damaging the electronic components.

The Mindsensors GlideWheel-M, Power Functions (PF) Motor controller for the NXT is designed to control PF motors from NXT. Providing high precision speed and rotation control, in an easy to use design. The GlideWheel-M PF Motor controller allows direct connection of PF Motors to your NXT. No extra power needed as Power for the motors is supplied from NXT’s Motor Port.

I have received a pair of Mindsensors’ GlideWheel-Ms, [powerfunction] Motor Controllers to Beta-Test. The GlideWheel-M is a motor controller for [powerfunction] (PF) Motors that allows you to connect [powerfunction] Motors to NXT Motor Ports. Using the built in encoder, the GlideWheel-M, allows rotational control of [powerfunction] Motors.

NXTCam-v3Love Linux, have a Mindstorms NXT Kit, and your wishing for a Mindsensors NXTCam-v3, that works in Linux!

If you are a Linux user and own a Mindsensor NXTCam, you life has just become a lot easier with aNXTCam. aNXTCam is a native Linux software suite written by Janosch Gräf for the Vision Subsystem v3 for NXT: NXTCam v3.0.

aNXTCam is a subproject of aNXT. It has been developed for configuring the Mindsensors NXTCam on a Linux machine. To my knowledge there is no other software available for Linux platform at this time that gives you complete control over your NXTCam.

For ease of use I have modified my Mindsensors' NXT & RCX Motor Multiplexers with the following Power Supply Modifications. This method finishes the issues associated with the external power supply leads fraying, braking and in the case of the RCX Motor Mux, shorting to the PCB Components on occasions. Which is not at all advisable!
