BIG NEWS: we are happy to announce that RoboRemote Server has been launched on other platforms!! No more PC needed! Check out our website for more info! You can now use other devices to act as a bridge between NXT and your iOS device.

A must have for every NXT Mindstorms fan!

In 5 easy steps you will be ready to take your NXT car for a spin:
1) Go to our website and follow the step by step instructions to build the model car
2) Download and run the Mac/PC Server app

5) Connect the Mac/PC Server to your NXT and you are ready to drive!!

There are 3 types of remotes you can use:
- the Puzzle Drive remote lets you build your track first and then you can play, pause, go forward or backward and choose the speed of individual track pieces
- the Pad Drive remote acts as a pad joystick allowing you to control the car with your thumbs
- the Air Drive remote allows you to drive the NXT by moving the iPhone through the air
