Program Robots using the new "Microsoft Robotics Studio"

The robotics platform that really interests me is the Lego MindStorm range; these are really cool, inexpensive little robots that even kids can program.

Well now I can program them using a new tool from Microsoft -  I didn't even know Microsoft had a division concerning Robotics! Turns out there is, and they have been beavering away at creating "a new Windows-based environment for academic, hobbyist and commercial developers to easily create robotic applications for a wide variety of computing platforms." The first CTP of "Microsoft Robotics Studio" is available here.

I'm really excited as support for Lego Mindstorm's are in this new Robotics Studio apparently, so I am going to check it out...
