LEGO Mindstorms NXT Rotacaster Bug Bot    Send article as PDF   
I originally built this LEGO Mindstorms NXT Bug Bot Robot as part of a display at the TAZ-Brick ( Collector Clubs Brixhibition North. The robot proved a hit with the under 10, LEGO Fanatics. Since then I’ve been playing around with the design of my Mindstorms NXT Bug Bot. In this new version I have replaced the 2x RCX type Touch Sensors with 2x NXT type Touch Sensors. The front bumpers had to remodelled to take the NXT Touch Sensors.

LEGO Mindstorms NXT Bin Emptying Robot – Mark III    Send article as PDF   
This is a LEGO Mindstorms NXT “Bin Emptying Robot Mark III”. It is part of a larger project I have been working on, my “Ball Sorting Factory“. A forklift delivers full Bins of balls to be emptied. The Emptied bins are then taken away to the processing facility to be refilled. The Mark II version worked well, but was a little unreliable, unlike this version. Like the previous version, it uses a “Ball Repository” to store, mix and reload the Production Line with Balls when the “Ball Sorting Factory” needs them.
