Use your Palm Pilot (using Sun's technology) to control your Lego Mindstorms robots. Read the <a href="http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/ConsumerProducts/JavaTanks/Javatanks.html">full story</a> at Sun's site.

This is really perverse.

The subject sounded really cool. I guess that was too much to expect from Sun.

OK, you have these palm pilots, with IR ports, and these RCX units, with IR ports, and you want to communicate with the RCX units from the Palm Pilot.

Well, the easy way to do this would be to use the Pilots to emulate the Lego IR remote controller, and send commands to an RCXcode, NQC, or pbForth program running in the RCX unit.

The hard way would be to add an ethernet, an expensive terminal server, two expensive Sun workstations, and an IR tower, and use a complicated experimental Java-based protocol to do the same thing.

But that would be really really stupid, wouldn't it?
