ev3 and hackable Linux ?

Post by cobbaut » 08 Aug 2013, 08:06

So I have this new ev3 brick (education set), but it only comes with MS and Apple software (the latter being the MS software running on Mono). Is there a way to program it using Linux ? (anything I can beta-test?)
Is there a way to ssh or telnet into this new brick ?

cheers,
paul

PS Exciting month, the brickpi and the makeblock lego bridges should arrive soon.

No, we're very busy working on it, though.

If you have a Netgear WNA1100, you can configure it to connect to your WiFi network and telnet to it. Username: root, password: empty (as in nothing)

Paul,
Where did you find the Makeblock kit? I have been unable to find one.
Thanks,
John
