We ran our first big event last night and it was huge fun! The software isn’t done yet, but it’s in good enough shape to get a few dozen kids to drive NXT and EV3 robots around a 4’x8′ table and take each other on.

To recap: We’re using SlimDX to read in input values from USB game controllers, and then sending the matching motor commands to the bricks via the MonoBrick library.
Thanks again! We plan to open-source the code once we’ve finished it up, ironed out the more obvious bugs, and cleaned up the code so it isn’t so scary to poke around it. ^_^;;
