I recently dusted off the lego mindstorms rcx kit I had from about 2001. It joins another kit i found for £30 on gumtree. Things have moved on since 2001 both in IT sphere and with my family - my daughters should soon be ready to appreciate robotics.
Lego have long stopped supporting the first iteration of the mindstorms range. In any case the lego software was ok but not great, better to use opensource 3rd party software - brixcc.
Anyway, to run brixcc in win7 using the serial ir tower I needed this. Works great, all I need now is to learn nqc!

I used this device to interface the serial interface of a dive computer with my laptop. Having read other reviews regarding the chipset I decided to try the Digitus DA-70156. I simply plugged it in, the drivers loaded automatically and it worked.
