Dexter Industries has announced a new product, a wifi module that can be added to a NXT project.
The Dexter Industries Wifi sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT is a sensor designed to allow your NXT to connect to the internet via a local Wifi network.
The sensor can be used to communicate via HTTP, TCP, UDP protocols. The sensor can connect via WPA, WPA2-PSK, and WEP networks, as well as adhoc networks between the NXT and a wifi enable device such as a cell phone or computer.
The sensor operates with standard 802.11 b/g/n access and can log onto any home network. The Dexter Industries Wifi Sensor connects to the NXT via the high speed communications Port 4 and is powered by an external 9V battery.
The sensor is supported in RobotC and NXC.
To get people excited for the new product, Dexter created some fun projects like a tweeting robot and a NXT web server that use the module.
