  1. Nice job @DarioD, also welcome to Eurobricks Train Tech. Python is always interesting to work with, even though I personally prefer C/C++ for microcontrollers.

    New Powerd up hub

    Well you might be correct about LEGO having dropped "Mindstorms", but that hub is mainly used in education for Junior FIRST LEGO League purposes. The link from @zephyr1934 shows that it is Spike. It is also part of this set:

    New Powerd up hub

    It is a Mindstorms hub, targeting younger children (younger primary school classes). It does feature a 6 DoF sensor and rechargeable battery, but I agree it is still quite costly especially since the normal hub is only 30 buck or so more expensive which has six ports.
  4. @Lok24 you did a lot of testing already on different platforms, did you by any chance notice any 'alive' messages?
  5. So then it must be an Android issue. Next would be to test it against multiple Android devices (to see if it is caused by Android indeed or just your type op device), and against iOS. As I remember there is some kind of 'ping pong' going to a devices knows the other device is still alive or not. I hope to test Raspberry Pi - PUP soon. I did some initial tests there, but not for longer durations for now.

    [MOC] A little ride in the parisian Streets

    Really nice @jalemac34. The feel of Paris really comes about. Has been a long time since I visited Paris but definitely captures it!

    Of course this is all very likely but for now we don't have any concrete info do we?
  10. Very nice idea @mikaelsol! Amazing alternative use of those slopes.

    LEGO Trains 2021

    That is obvious indeed! Sound, a light sensor, smart motor. Hope LEGO will shrink the DUPLO PCB and allow it to fit in a 4x something size housing. But the advantage of Duplo is obviously that there is much more space!

    [MOC] Our steam train and the technics inside

    Very nice @brick-builds, even though maybe you could sub title the video so people that don't speak German can also understand. Did you print the driving rods yourself? Especially the front part is nice (the one shifting back and forth). Still some details missing around the engineers cabin? I guess you guys will still attend to that?
  13. Looks very nice @Murdoch17. Good find those eyes make it really look like the one from the book.
  14. Nice one @Paperinik77pk. Will be probably costly to build in real life.
