    LEGO + Arduino = Brickduino (1. the LED)

    Now we're getting very close to my embryo of idea!But I'm not very interested of the electric connectivity LEGO offers. It's both expensive and very coarse. I'd suggest use the Dupont system instead, if possible. What LEGO really can offer to Arduino projects is some mechanical stability. The true gain of this combination is a chance to attach the Arduino and its external modules to a LEGO plate or, say the body of a LEGO robot!A LEGO-compatible housing for the Arduino would be great! But I think just an "open air" interface part would be even better as you don't know how high the Arduino will build, with Dupont cables and maybe shield(s) attached to it.Finally, there are already tons of modules for the Arduino out there for the cost of almost nothing. As I view it, the trick ...see more »Now we're getting very close to my embryo of idea!But I'm not very interested of the electric connectivity LEGO offers. It's both expensive and very coarse.

As I view it, the trick is to create an interface system to snap them to the LEGO baseplate. I'm thinking of making 1x1 round bricks with an M3 threaded screw or hole, but the problem is that the modules lack a standard hole configuration. It would have been perfect if they started using multiples of LEGO stud spacing...
