After a couple of failed attemps a few months ago due to engineer/mechanical issues I came back to it a couple of days ago. This time the FlexiPicker is Sorting Coloured Balls, by using the claw/grabber which users an 55gram RC type mini-Servo controlled via Mindsensors 8 Channel Servo Controller (NXTServo-v2) which can control upt o 8 RC servos.The ball Delivery Mechanism is also controlled via 55gram RC type mini-Servo.

I am very happy with the result’s I’ve achieved with this unconventional Robot. I have used Vector Mathematics to transfer the X-Y co-ordinates to Control the 3x NXT Motors. It’s possible to have the arm place objects at 45 degrees apart, around the frame with complete accuracy. It’s would be possible to sort eight different coloured balls, if I had then with no foreseeable issues  andplacing around the circumference of the Robot in piles 45° apart.
