    SBrick General Discussion

    I guess that the remained available backer options being all comparatively high price also contributes to the fast growth of the total backed amount.

    [MOC] Watchtower of Gragoloon

    What a masterpiece it is! Awesome!
  4. not quite get the point... why do pure LEGO Technic fans tend to stay away from Mindstorm?

    Congratulations! Really hope the stretch goals of a profile designer can be achieved. However, considering the money remained to go, it seems to be a hard mission. However, this is really a attracting feature...


    When seeing this MOC, the word popped to my mind is - Howl's Moving Castle!!!

    Maybe, the designer of SBrick thinks that this SBrick is to replace the IR receiver which the user already have. This means the user who is going to use SBrick should already have a spare cable to connect the module to the battery pack. And also considering that most of the target users who are going to use the SBrick will be Technic MOCers, it's not unusual that the users already have enough spare cables, motors and battery packs. Also the cable itself is sold by LEGO and is not that cheap, I wonder the designer whether want include this cost into the initial KickStart estimation.

    Agree iwth efferman that the SBRICK is perfect enough for it is now. However, if the coding of the instructions sent to the SBRICK through bluetooth can be published later, it would be possible for other new SBRICK like modules to be developed. What I can think about now is that if the coding is known, then another module which contains a more powerful microcontroller + bluetooth communication can be developed so that a more sophisticated program can be loaded to the MCU module and the MCU module just send the instructions in the same format as your smart phone does through a wireless way to the SBRICK module. Of course, then other modules like camera modules, sensor modules, gyro modules can be gradually developed, each in a SBRICK like block or even smaller. Then the modules can be placed or hidden in the appropriate places of the MOC. It sounds like that it will work like a mindstorm, but each module will be more compact and can be better integrated into a Technic MOC.

    I'm pretty interested in the programmable firmware. On your website, it is stated that an programmable routine will allow the motors to run without a remote controller. My questions are: 1. Whether this feature is realized by embedding a MCU which means a much higher flexibility for the user to program the routine and means that a routine need not to be a per-determined flow but a flow that can change on-fly based certain conditions. 2. In order to realize the on-fly changing routine, some input from outside world will be necessary. So the next question is that whether the module is possible for a future expansion to include a input port for like sensors?

    Nice review. I personally prefer model A...
  11. Amazon US is also selling it for 195.53 used which is almost equivalent to £112.76. And I have seen this price on Amazon US quite often. Wondering whether this is Amazon's normal price.

    [REVIEW] 42025 Cargo Plane

    Really love the hovercraft and also have seen some MOC to make the hovercraft fully motorized. I'm also thinking about to make this set one of my collection although currently it is out of my budge plan.

    [REVIEW] 42025 Cargo Plane

    I love the model B more.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion - EVA02

    Awesome work! BTW. Is there also the tube for the pilot?
  15. Amazon US is also available for pre-ordering now. Wonder whether there will be a kindle version and when.
