The original title of the book: The Unofficial Guide to Lego Mindstorms
The LEGO®: MINDSTORMS: Robotics Invention System (RIS) is a wildly popular kit for building mobile robots. This book contains all the information you need to get the most out of your kit. Based on hands-on robot projects, the book includes descriptions of advanced mechanical techniques, programming with third-party software, building your own sensors, working with more than one kit, and sources of extra parts. This book goes far beyond what you'll find in the official documentation to enable you to build and program whatever you can imagine.The center of the RIS kit is a small programmable robot brain called the RCX. This book explains the software architecture of the RCX as well as the various options that are available for programming it.The book includes:
- Hands-on robot projects, with complete building instructions and programs. Different aspects of these projects are used to explore fundmental issues of mobile robot design.
- A chapter on NQC, a popular programming environment for RIS. You'll learn how NQC fits into the RIS software architecture, as well as how to write programs using NQC's C-like syntax. Includes copious examples.
- A chapter on legOS, an alternate operating system for the RCX. legOS provides very low-level access to the resources of the RCX, enabling complex robot programming. This chapter describes legOS's structure and includes useful sample programs.
- A chapter on pbForth, another powerful option for RCX robot programming. The chapter includes sample programs in Forth.
- A chapter about building your own sensors. Making your own sensors is economical and educational. This chapter describes how to build several different sensors that will work with the RIS kit.

The articles in this volume discuss certain topical debates (for example surrounding the infamous Austrokoffer literary project, or the debates about pension provision and about religion), they identify emerging trends in Austrian film (the hybridization of genres and the use of the mock-documentary as political intervention), and they highlight new departures in literary expression (recent Romani writing and the rise of the multi-generational family novel).Clyde steamer design had reached a peak in the 1930s but by the fifties the times were changing: people increasingly abandoned the traditional Clyde resorts of Dunoon, Rothesay and Brodick for foreign climes and shipbuilding on the river was in decline.The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades.Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work.Contents:Daisy BellGreensleevesHome on the RangeFor He's a Jolly Good FellowLiebestraumMerrily We Roll AlongMichael Row The Boat AshoreOh SusannaSonata in C MajorRadetzky MarchRoses From the SouthSonata PathetiqueSwan LakeThe EntertainerThe New World SymphonyTheme From JupiterTrumpet VoluntaryWaves of the DanubeWedding March (Here Comes The Bride)When The Saints Go Marching InSkill Level: Grade1 to Grade 3You can also play together in a duet or ensemble with other instruments with a book for that instrument.It is not an interpretation or a critical analysis of the content of the book.
