Yes, it's working. We don't know if we're going to use them, but I plan to
a plugin anyway.

We bought a kit from sparkfun.com last year which I think is no longer
Anyway, these are the items icluded:
Arduino Duemilanove (ATmega328)
Light sensor SEN-09088 <http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9088>
Buzzer COM-07950 <http://www.sparkfun.com/products/7950>
Trim pot COM-9288 <http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9288>
Temperature sensor SEN-00250 <http://www.sparkfun.com/products/250>
Tricolor LED COM-09264 <http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9264>
Button COM-09190 <http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9190>
Jumper wires PRT-08431 <http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8431>
We also bought a motor shield for driving more motors:

Yes, we're using Firmata in the Arduino.
Correct. The current TA+NXT is based on the nxt_python library, which

I think there's a function in nxt-python that lets you upload a program to
the nxt brick. I'll check it out later. Right now I'm working on a plugin
the new plugins model for TA.
