  1. This thing look mean. My guess for the syringe is Speed How exactly are the front wheel brakes working? I can't see anything brake-like on the wheel hubs. But i've got to admit that i'm more interested in your test-bench. Does it have it's own topic?

    As i understood the designer it was for visual consistency: it has the same colour as the other tail lights

    Those were plastic optical fibres, much more flexible than rigid hoses. I don't know whether this polymer can be dyed without negatively influencing their lifespan.

    As i understood it, he hopes that it will be in the crane set.

    Based on the pictures we have there are 4 x 4 = 16 different gears. It could be that the secondary gear unit has only two different gear ratios. that way we get 4 x 2 = 8 different gear ratios I would love a @Blakbird render of this gearbox PS: What official video? Seems i missed something.

    I guess you mean to watch it when he releases it? Or have i missed him posting it on youtube?

    That's awesome What's the best source for the current activities of @Jim, @Sariel, and the rest of the gang in Billund? Can we expect more to come?

    I'm really curious for Jims review. I want to see how they realized the geneva mechanism to drive the second gear selector.
  9. My last experience with Mindstorms was the NXT so my questions might be outdated: - Have the considered native support for written programming languages? If i remember correctly one had to change the firmware and use a custom IDE - What sensors would they like to produce/will never produce? I would love a force-sensor. (I know you could build one with the touch sensor and a spring) - What limits the number of Out-/Inputs? - Regarding smartphones, modern consumer electronics have a very short lifespan on the market. How is this taken into account during development? Is good, is it bad for them?
  10. This is incredible. You managed something i always thought impossible: LEGO with the performance of a real RC-Car.

    Me too, but @Carsten Svendsen is right. more teeth provide a smoother and more efficient transfer of power. If you're afraid of slipping gears, i suggest gearing up before the bevel gear set. This method did wonders to the drivetrain of my bucket wheel excavator.
  12. This seems to be a powerful mod. unfortunately worm gears have a tendency to become really inefficient when they transmit a lot of torque. generating the same ratio with straight or bevel gears would actually be more efficient i.e. more powerful. I'm really interested to see the slewing. You're losing quite a lot of leverage by not using the outer gear teeth. I'll be watching with interest
  13. This is incredible Thank you very much for sharing!

    It is awesome that he used the conventional battery box. I've got a lot of them from Technic sets. The LiPo box isn't contained in any sets and fairly expensive. But then again, he used the switch, also a relative uncommon part
