Android LEGO MINDroid app: make your phone a robot remote

LEGO has released an official app for Android smartphones that allows users to remotely control their Mindstorm NXT robots by moving the handset.  LEGO MINDroid is a free download for Android 2.1 phones or above, and creates a Bluetooth link between the handset and the NXT controller block.

"Once a connection is established, you can tilt and turn your phone to make the robot move forward, turn to the sides, and by pressing an action button on the phone's screen, activate the Action motor. If you have a Shooterbot or other robot using two motors for motion and have a spare motor for actions, you are in for a lot of fun!" LEGO

The company is promising more applications for "various smart devices" in the future, and has been working with the official Mindstorms NXT team.
