10/2/2014 Projects Update

Soooo..... It's been awhile since my last post and I thought I should do an update on the 2 projects I've been working on.

First of all, I've been making allot of progress with Z3US. I've replaced the NXT used as a head with an EV3 and I've been programming the EV3's via Daisy Chaining :)

Second, I've  started building a powered Exoskeleton! So far I've only been buying necessary parts and not actually started putting them together. My plan is to build  just one exoskeleton arm and get it working then do the other arm. 
The exoskeleton will only power the  upper-body (arms). It'll be powered by electric linear actuators and the expected total power (including my own) is about 200 pounds of weight I will be able to lift.
I've already spent about $300 USD on parts! I'd better finish this one!

NXT Joystick Remote Control

Here is an NXT Joystick Remote Control I made for Z3US . It uses an EV3 large motor , an EV3 small motor and an EV3 touch sensor . Below are a few photos :)

A Special Thx.... Part 2

I recently received a brand new EV3 , a whole bunch of LEGO keychains , 20 sheets of LEGO MINDSTORMS stickers , a T-shirt and a awesome letter from a member of the LEGO MINDSTORMS team .
So... I would like to thank the LEGO MINDSTORMS team and Marc-Andre-Bazergui (a.k.a Bazmarc) for asking the LMS team for the help :)

A Special Thx....

I wanted to write this post to say thanks to MCP Marc-Andrè-Bazergui (Bazmarc) for donations made to my MINDSTORMS collection . He donated allot of useful parts an NXT, motors, plating etc. Z3US wouldn't be possible without his support so once again THANKS!

I would also like to thank my parents for getting me started with MINDSTORMS by getting me an NXT and EV3 . I wouldn't have created this blog or made any robots without them so... THANK YOU MOM ,DAD and BAZMARC!

Technical difficulties.....

Unfortunately one of the robots that I've recently built will not be posted for some time because my SD card that has all the pictures and videos for the robot is having some problems . So sorry for the lack of posts:(
(If I fix the SD ill replace this post with a post on the robot)
