Airsoft Tank Seeks Out Its Target Via "Mindstorms"

4 posts in this topic

My family spotted this MOC at Washington State University this past weekend -- it's an Airsoft pistol mounted on top of a Lego TECHNIC & MINDSTORMS elements. It can automatically follow the target using its sensors, and fire soft pellets with incredible range and accuracy! It was made by the "Technology Club" Electrical and Mechanical Engineering students at Washington State University (in Pullman, Washington, USA). :bonaparte: They scavenged parts off of a 8272 Snowmobile set. (Too bad there wasn't a cool club like this where I went to college....)

No, the Airsoft Tank was just sitting on a table in a crowded room, so there's no video of it in action. I made a slight mistake -- the tank is actually from nearby UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO (Moscow, Idaho, USA) and not from WSU (which we visited later).

Some people say if there are no pictures, it didn't happen, but with Mindstorms, if there is no video it doesn't work :shark:
