Launched in January of 2006, Nxtbot.com is a blog and Web site dedicated to providing news, reviews, feature stories and interviews concerning the fast-changing world of consumer robotics. Nxtbot.com provides coverage of the entire spectrum of personal and industrial robotics, and encourages site visitors to actively share their own commentary and observations.
Originally sponsored by the LEGO Group, ownership of the Nxtbot.com blog was transferred to Jeff James in November 2007. Nxtbot.com is now a wholly independent robotics blog that is not sponsored, authorized or endorsed by the LEGO Group.
