Dear Paula and Carl,

I've seen a Palette section in the AppInventor with a collection of objects for Lego Mindstorms.

What's the relationship between AppInv. and the Lego brick? Is this a present development option or it is a future tool? Where can I find technical information describing the use of this library?

Regards.
Pedro

Re: Lego Minstorms and AppInventor
Hi Pedro

I've checked with Carl too and neither of us have personal experience (yet!) of using AppInventor with Lego. The people at MIT give some guidance for controlling the Lego Mindstorms robots using Bluetooth.

Let us know how you get on.

Thanks

Paula
