  • Each of Sensors Port 1-4 are on their own I2C bus. Ports 1-4 also support analog sensors (like the touch sensor or thermometers), and some of the custom LEGO sensors like their ultrasonic.

    Sensor Port 5 is on an i2C bus with the Raspberry Pi, which supports fast I2C sensors.

    The problem with putting all 4 on the same bus is that you would not be able to support multiple ultrasonic sensors, or the other custom LEGO sensors like the light sensor.

  • These are the BrickPi Advance model. And you're right the Advanced is better for batteries.

  • Is there any hope for a 10-pin JTAG programmer in the future?

  • Best product ever. EVER. Buying two right now.

  • Here's an Arduino shield for the PS2 Controller on Tindie:


  • Any example circuit on how these might be used?

  • I may be missing something obvious: output from this example code is in degrees per second, or is it in 10's of degrees per second?
    And does that value change as you change the full scale selection? If you move from 250 dps to 2000 dps, is the output still in 10's of dps?

  • Could this be used to connect an Xbee to an RS-485 connection? Would it be possible to do that directly with this device?

No public wish lists :(
