Put a Java Brain into your Lego Robot

Our JavaONE session today went very well.  The room was packed (roughly 150 persons), with people standing in the back.

All demos went well, after a few surprises and tuning :-)

Comments and questions during the talk were very positive.

As promised to the attendees, here are the slides, the source code of the REST API (as a NetBeans project) and the source code of the iPad application (as an XCode project).

Feel free to leave comments and remarks here.  Thank you for attending and enjoy !

Playing with Lego’s Mindstorms, LeJOS, GlassFish and an iPad

I will co-present three different session, hands-on-lab and BOF during JavaONE 2010.

One of these has actually nothing to do with usual business, it just aims at being fun and at playing with geek toys : we are hosting a BOF about Java programming for the Lego’s Mindstorms, i.e. the LeJOS project.

Neither David or myself are directly involved with LeJOS community, we are just regular users willing to share our experiences with people discovering Lego’s Mindstorms kit and the LeJOS project.

So, if you happen to be around in San Francisco next Wednesday, be sure to stop 45 minutes at 02:15 pm in the Parc 55 Hotel (Room Divisidero)

David will demo how to interface Lego’s NXT brick with an Arduino device.

I will show how to create a iPad controller for a robot, using a REST interface hosted on GlassFish.

Does it sounds geeky enough ? A short videoshow all this in action.
