USB stands for Universal Serial Bus and is a standard that describes both the physical constraints of the hardware connections as well as the communication protocol that each USB device must adhere to. USB is used for short range networks (cable length of less than 15 ft.), that mainly support peripheral devices such as USB hard drives, flash memory sticks, or other input devices like a mouse or joystick. The USB standard has undergone a few overhauls over its lifetime – which have allowed for different connection types, and more importantly speed upgrades. All USB devices are backwards compatible however, and should all work together, even when different speed of devices are placed in the same network. That being said, the USB network will be limited in speed to the slowest device available.

The USB lists that each cable must provide ~5v at each connection point, allowing for the slave device to draw power from an attached power source. This can be helpful when dealing with robotics by removing the need for an additional power supply. To learn more about USB, take a look at the links below:

LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT better than ever: new models, more customisable programming and all-new technologies! MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 combines the versatility of the LEGO building system with all-new technologies, an intelligent microcomputer brick and intuitive drag-and-drop programming software. The new 2.0 toolkit features everything you need to create your first robot in 30 minutes and then thousands of other robotics inventions that do what you want!
LEGO Mindstorms is a line of Lego Group products combining programmable bricks with electric motors, sensors, Lego bricks, and Lego Technic pieces (such as gears, axles, beams, and pneumatic parts) to build robots and other automated or interactive systems.
LEGO Mindstorms can be consired toys and/or educational microworlds to learn computer programming.

Orgininally, this product has been co-developped with the Epistemology and Learning Group of MIT Media Lab. Since collaboration has ended, this research group renamed to Lifelong Kindergarden worked on other systems, e.g. Crickets (marketed by another company)

LEGO sells different variants of this product: RCX and the recent NXT
For each LEGO provides software (programming languages), but there are numerous other ones that one can use instead.
