In this activity, we will control NXT robots over BlueTooth radio directly from an Imagine project. Currently you need a version of Imagine that supports ActiveX (most versions do), and download and register the following activeX component:

newserial.ocx

(you register component with running regsvr32 path_to_ocx from Start-Run...).

From Imagine, open the following project (please be prepared that this is not a finished product): nxt.imp.

You also need to setup connection to NXT over BlueTooth (same as in the case of Robotnacka) and provide correct serial port (COMx).

When you experience connection problems you might need to turn NXT off and on again, and also allow few seconds between turning the connection on and off from the Imagine project.
