LEGO Mindstorms NXT Car with Game Controller

This car is controlled by a remote control that works similar to a video game controller.  With your two thumbs, you can control the steering and power of the car. 

The steering part of the control (left thumb) uses the light sensor in an interesting way to produce an "analog" type control, where the farther you push back and forth with your thumb, the more the car will steer. 

The controller built in this project and the program that goes with it can also be used to control other robots that you design.  See the Challenges at the end of the building instructions for details.
