It is very similar to the NXT. The camera has nothing to do with either the RCX or the NXT. It is simply a small camera that is attached using whatever means you can to your robot, it transmits back a signal to a receiving unit (sold with the camera) which goes into your PC which then communicates to the IR tower which then communicates back to the robot. Thus the camera is a stand alone system and not sold as part of the NXT or RCX kit. You need to purchase this in addition to the RCX.

Have a look elsewhere in this forum for camera recommendations.
