BrickPi Controls Mindstorms Bots With a RasPi


Dexter Industries builds Lego Mindstorms add-on sensors and other compatible products, and their latest project — not yet completed — is the BrickPi, which allows the Pi to control up to 3 Mindstorms motors and four sensors (but not the ultrasonic). The board’s firmware is written in Arduino 1.0. If you’re interested in the source, check out the project’s Github repository.
