Program NXT Robots Using NI LabVIEW

National Instruments has announced that it will soon have a LabVIEW Toolkit for LEGO MINDSTORMS available for download. It is unclear whether this toolkit is the same as the Driver SDK ( 2.21MB) that Lego has just released.

According to NI:

The LabVIEW Toolkit for LEGO MINDSTORMS gives existing LabVIEW users the ability to create and download VIs to operate and control their LEGO robotics systems. The toolkit also makes it possible for third-party software and hardware developers to create native blocks for MINDSTORMS NXT software. The LabVIEW Toolkit for LEGO MINDSTORMS will soon be available for download. Stay up-to-date by joining the LabVIEW Fans of LEGO Community.

All this is off course only an option if you already have LabView. Purchasing LabView just to use it with Lego is likely out of everyone's price range.

The Student Edition of LabView is reasonably priced at $80.
