I have a (Lego) dream: connecting the Lego WeDo hub to the Mindstorms EV3…?

Sunday February 2nd, Sioux Embedded Systems is organizing a Lego Education workshop for their employees, partners and children. We bought 17 Lego EV3 bricks and 7 WeDo. Plus for both systems the expansion set. It was a car full of Lego:

Surrounded by all this Lego, I had the vision of connecting all these stuff together. Making it more easy to connect the PF motors to the Mindstorms technique (currently, we use the HiTechnic IR Link to control PF motors). Since the EV3 has an USB port, a Linux programmer should be able to modify the firmware to control the WeDo Hub. And therefore, the Mindstorms EV3 should be able to control PF motors. Of course, it would mean that the Mindstorms Programming Environment should also be extended with an “WeDo programming block”.

Maybe, some day…..
