    Hi guys, I'm a new to java only been doing it for a couple months. Recently got an assigment to make a program in order to make a lego robot (known as lego mindstorms) programmed to move around an arena to draw its path on the computer screen.

    Any ideas how this can be done?

    Thanks in advance,

    ps.

    No problem. When I played with it a while ago, it was ridiculously easy to get some basic Java commands controlling a robot. Unfortunately, some other projects took over my life and my NXT is now sadly sitting in a box under my bed. I'd be curious to hear about what you do with this!
