  • Robotify Your Set Building Contest

    2 Nov 2014 | Lama-mantis in news | no comments

    LEGO made a lot of great sets. Sadly enough, most of them don’t move by themselves. Have you ever thought about using your MINDSTORMS hardware to let your favorite set move? Or have you ever made a robotic replica of it? In this contest, I challenge you to ‘robotify’ your favorite LEGO set(s) by using LEGO MINDSTORMS hardware and parts. You may also make a replica of your favorite set, such as a self-driving police car completely made of Technic pieces.

  • GammaBug

    24 Jul 2014 | Lama-mantis in robots | 3 comments

    Yo guests! The official MINDSTORMS Community Building Challenge (posted by EV3COMMUNITY) of this month is the MicroBot Building Challenge. It asks you to build a prototype for a small robot that can help the humanity. I wanted to make something that can help with healing diseases. So I built GammaBug, a robot that can heal tumors that can’t be removed in the ‘normal’ way. Sadly enough, there are some glitches in the MINDSTORMS Community, so I can’t upload it there. So you can read here everything about the robot.

  • LEGO Ideas: Exo Terra

    17 May 2014 | Lama-mantis in LEGO Ideas | 1 comment

    After a long journey, a robot lands on the surface of a planet in the Alpha Centauri system. The lander unfolds its solar arrays, and two flying probes leave the lander, explore the alien planet. The two probes meet an animal with long legs. They have found alien life. That's a possible story for a mission outside our own solar system. I made a project called 'Exo Terra', that gives you everything to make your own missions. The set contains ground pieces of the planet, 2 probes, one lander and 3 alien creatures. If you support, this can become a real LEGO® product!
