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)

EV3 Snowmobile

Happy New years ! I hope you had a happy 2013 and that you have a happy 2014 ! Before 2014 I wanted to do a post so I quickly opened my EV3 I got for Christmas and made this a LEGO Mindstorm EV3 Snowmobile.




Here is are the treads in action . I added connector pins for more traction with the snow .

Here is a the steering sleigh.

Here is a bottom view . I added small sleighs on the bottom of the Snowmobile for support ( I didn't want the body to depend on the treads for support ) .





Here is the is the Inferred sensor being used with the remote control.





And here are some extra pictures.
