HiTechnic IRLink sensor is now available

Since yesterday HiTechnic (a well known producer of sensors for MINDSTORMS NXT) made available to the market, its new IRLink sensor.

The NXT IRLink Sensor allwos control of Power Function motors and LEGO RC trains directly from NXT, as well as to communicate with MINDSTORMS RCX via IR (programing block for RCX will become available later in October).

This new small product will bring communication capabilities from NXT to the TECHNIC world.

I don't know if it has already been done with the RCX, but now the NXT also has the power to change channels on the TV! It's just a matter of developing the adequate software, to learn romte control codes, and off we go, turning off the TV just when our team is about to score a goal! Heh heh heh!
