Lego MINDroid app gives Android Mindstorms control

Lego ventured into more advanced mobile apps late Monday by posting a dedicated Android app for Mindstorms NXT robots. MINDroid (QR code below) wirelessly links with the creation and uses the accelerometer in most Android phones to move by tilting. A lone action button also triggers the standard action motor.

The app is free apart from buying the Mindstorms set itself and needs a phone running at least Android 2.1 or later. Lego hasn't said if it plans to make equivalents for iOS or other platforms, though there's no specific limits that would preclude a supporting app.
