I’m pleased to announce that Enchanting v0.2.1 is out!
Why not start out the new year by trying out a new way to program your LEGO Mindstorms NXT robot?
Here’s a video showing what it does.
[If you’d rather, watch this shorter trailer video instead.]
Enchanting is free (as in lunch, and in speech) and available for Windows XP+ and Mac OS X 10.4+. (We would love help getting the experimental Linux and Raspberry Pi versions ready for use.)
Please see the Enchanting website for information on getting started with Enchanting — we now have Enchanting Cards [3.4 MB PDF] and there is an interactive eBook on programming in Enchanting 0.0.9.1 .
Here are the scripts demonstrated in the video:

and here are screenshots of those scripts:
Drive Around A Square
Follow That Line (With Eyes)
|The Big Bad Wolf||The Little Pig|
Drive Around An Arbitrary Polygon
The Sumo Bots:
The two robots ran almost identical code, shown in Enchanting card #12 , except that I added code to turn on the lights to show what behaviour they were executing (which I forgot to save!), and I made one wander in the opposite direction so that the fight wouldn’t take all day!
