About the author (2007)

Philippe Hurbain got his first Mindstorms kit in 2000, and soon his electronics background pushed him to build new and original sensors for the RCX. His web site shows how to build these sensors and includes a lot of technical information on the original Mindstorms kit. In 2006, he was selected as a beta tester for the new NXT that he received several months before the official release.
