Hi Randy,

I have controlled my Mindstorms 1.2 (?) version with Squeak (see the page at 
http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/squeak/2412) but I was using a serial-connected 
tower.

I suppose the best bet would be for someone to write something that is 
compatible with the newest LEGO SDK (and so would work with all of these 
devices): http://mindstorms.lego.com/sdk2/LEGOMindStormsSDK.zip

Anyone out there in Squeak land interested?
