I followed the instructions on LEGO Turing Machine and succeeded to build it. Next I've tried and failed to program it using NXT Mindstorm GUI. The site mentions a Rascal framework, but it doesn't mention how to install it onto the NXT.

I'm not so keen using Rascal, any other well documented framework will do. Any suggestions ?

I'm using NXT 2.0

Rascal is a meta-language, a language to write languages in. Have you had a look at the repository github.com/DavyLandman/TuringLEGO/blob/master/BitFlipper.nxc Maybe one can load nxc files onto the nxt. Also you can try asking the repository owner via email. –  User Dec 3 '13 at 10:54
Right, I'll check the BitFlipper. Sending the owner an email was my first action, thank you for commenting ! –  serj Dec 3 '13 at 11:40
Actually, you can't build a turing machine, as it require an infinite tape. –  Stephane Delcroix Dec 3 '13 at 15:13
"Alan Turing's original model has an infinite tape, but LEGO had a slight problem supplying infinite bricks.", from (legoturingmachine.org). Even though it serves as an awesome model. –  serj Dec 4 '13 at 11:44
