Review of Klutz LEGO Crazy Action Contraptions
One thing that really bothered me when I starting building LEGO Technic models is the lack of bricks and beams. So on my race to build a good supply of parts I bought Klutz Crazy Action Contraptions (£8 on Amazon.co.uk) because it has lots of gears and axles and what the hell, because the book ...

Pinocchio, is that you?

Pinocchio, is that you?
If you recall a previous post about walking robots, ( haha! The Walking Robots! World Premier! ), Walker ND1 managed to walk in a clumsy way. This other robot on the other hand walks in a really elegant way but it is sustained by threads so it has almost zero weight. Much like Pinocchio… Share ...

LEGO Mindstorms Stacker, Minecraft building anyone?

LEGO Mindstorms Stacker, Minecraft building anyone?
