Mike D’Amour just sent me over this link from youtube of another implementation of the RoboFlusher by xdmds200092:
Great job! It’s fun to see folks using our instructions!
Check out my latest creation, the iPhone Lego Robot Demo. This simple demo shows how to have iPhone’s Safari browser communicate with Lego Mindstorms via the NXT Light Sensor.
We held an arena battle a couple of weeks ago, with four entrants. David Kincade fielded his first robot, and I finally got to build my ultimate spinner bot. Spintaho’s main weapon is driven by six lego motors, and it uses the NXT to drive and detect other robots. This is my first robot that uses two RCX’s and one NXT brick. Check out the pictures here, and the video here.
Check out our latest creation, the RoboFlush. It’s a Lego NXT Mindstorms Robot that automatically flushes the toilet!
I’m always on the lookout for interesting interface devices between the computer and the real world. Cheap is also good. I came across a nice looking mini servo controller from Pololu here: http://www.pololu.com/products/pololu/0207/.
Also, I’ve been thinking about trying out some of these too:http://www.phidgets.com/. They are input and output devices with an easy to use USB interface built in. Seems like you could create quite a few interesting things with them.
I do enjoy a good Lego model. Over at Fascinating Lego Model of the Day, I was a bit overwelmed! Each day this blogger highlights a new lego project. Now if only they all came with instructions!
