Figure 1-16 shows a light sensor. Figure 1-16. The light sensor Though there’s no built-in color detection, areas of different colors will give rise to different numerical values of reflected light. After all, these are not absolute but relative values, depending for instance on ambient light. This makes color detection with the light sensor pretty unreliable and context-dependent. The light sensor also has a small lamp to emit a red light, which is useful for illumination of dark environments and for amplification of reflected light.

It is the exclusive source for new releases of the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Software. Moreover, LEGO has started to provide building instructions for advanced robots designed by the LEGO robotics team, including the recent sound-playing robot and a truly prodigious classic cuckoo clock. However, the most interesting feature on the web site arguably is NXTLOG, most likely the largest repository for NXT robots on the Web. It’s a fully moderated community where members may upload their NXT projects with photos, descriptions, and building instructions, thus sharing their designs with the community.
