Dad and Adam’s entry for NXTASY Challenge #3 “The Anxt”. This is an amazing feat to preform with a Lego Robot weighing less than 1Kg! The ability to lift and then carry 35Kg for over 1 Metre, is just simply a stunning achievement. This contest was conducted back in 2007, and there was no video posted to the public at the time.
