lego nxt boat lake 480x360 Lego NXT R/C boat

Our go-to guy for all things R/C, Fra Fondi, of Hobby Media/Xtreme RC Cars, sent us this video for an awesome Lego NXT-controlled boat. It has an NXT Brick MCU onboard and is controlled by a mobile phone via Bluetooth. It has a range of about 50 meters in clear line of sight.

A few more pics here on Brickshelf.

[Thanks, Fra!]
