The latest NXTLOG competition has just been released. It requires 2 NXTs for all entries whether the 2nd NXT comes as a joystick or just as extra processing space.
"NXT NXT...? Are you seeing double? Yes! We are presenting a doubly fun building challenge where you create a robot that uses 2 NXT bricks! We are also giving you double the amount of time to enter this challenge (projects must be entered by June 30, 2008).The 2 NXT's can be onboard the robot or the 2 NXT's can be separate (for example if 1 NXT is used as a remote controller for the 2nd NXT). The NXT's must communicate with each other. Don't have 2 NXT's? Why not enter the challenge with a friend!There's no limit on amount of LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT sensors, motors, HiTechnic sensors, or Bluetooth communication you can use on your MINDSTORMS NXT NXT Robot."
As you can see; it is a bit unfair in my opinion for those with no NXTing friends and only one robot. But I suppose it will bring out some super huge robots that will have larger capabilities and more complex functions. Also there is twice as long to build it.
Please comment on your opinion,
