It's Official: MindStorms Does Go Open Source

As Lego announced yesterday, the firmware for the NXT bricks will indeed be available under an open source licence. The licence itself has not yet been announced, but hopefully it will be a "bearable" one.

Moreover, three developer kits – for hardware, software and Bluetooth – will be made freely available as well. The hardware developer kit will contain detailed information on the wire connectors, allowing for home-made sensors, for example.

Hooray once more!
