  1. Great work! I really admire your efforts and your impact in community of Technic fans around the world. Is there any way to help or support you?:) Also, I would like to know if there is any chance that App will be compatible with my good old iPhone 5? BrickController seem to be only compatible with iPhone 5s and later.
  2. Thank you for the suggestion. But there is too many gears for me and I want to have only one gearbox driving ring. Yeah, I thought about old differential from the very beginning. But the connection with 8z gear is the weakest point in those gearboxes on previous page since they cannot be embraced at all. I asked because there could be some compact 2-speed gearboxes with new 20z clutch gear that are still have to be invented . I want to use 2-speed high-efficient gearbox in motorized light-weight model, yes. I tried this variant a long time ago, but with the old driving ring and old change-over lever. It wasn't reliable at all. I will try it with the new driving ring and new wave selector pieces on the sides of driving ring and see if it works. But I still think that ever if driving ring connection with gears will be reliable the 8z and differential gear will slip. There is another variant I came up with recently. This variant becomes quite compact with two L-motors having each own axle and doesn't involve 8z gear. The gear ratios are 1.25:1 and 1:2 giving a difference 2.5 in the output speed. The wave selector piece is easily placed above the driving ring. And it seems that with some not simple gearing two wave selector pieces could be placed on the sides of the driving ring. I still have to figure how to make bracing as compact as possible and how make a motorized switch. May be I need to start a separate topic for the gearboxes for motorized models
  3. Any ideas on two-speed gearbox using as few as possible gears with the difference in speed about 3 times? For example 1:1 and 1:3. Is it very simple to make 1:1 and 3:5 with four gears, but that is not very sufficient.

    Well, we do have an old-style differential gear with 24t and 16t gears, that can engage with driving rings too. However, it isn't simple to install and gearbox is much bulkier that with new 20t clutch.
  5. I've met with @SilenWin today and had an honour of feeling this stunning creation in my hands. It feels so rugged and so reliable. The suspension at work is something I can watch forever. I am really impressed by total stiffness of this model. I will definitely build one!
  6. Congratulations @Marxpek! Have fun with Bugatti:) But no mention of runner-ups makes me worry
  7. Thank you! Yeah, it did indeed pull a wheelie for a couple of times when BuWizz has not been discharged much yet:) I can upload all 50Gb of raw video or just some cuts without music to prove that it is real speed indeed. Fun fact is that the contest is about fast cars and it kind of please to hear opinion that the video is speeded up I understand why video may be looking like it is speeded up. Those are not raindrops from rain . You can see that there are some wet and dry areas on video. The reason is simple: there is some kind of "roof" over the place where I recorded the video. The snow on this roof is melting very fast and is making those "raindrops". Here is the screenshot of the video with this "roof", you can see snow over it. Also on video on 1:22 and on 1:34 you can see those "raindrops" with the slow movement of the car and the movement of men that are obviously not looking like speeded up. Thank you! I appreciate your comment since I really wanted to make a good video
  8. Thanks! All video is played in normal speed except for the parts with slow-mo. I too have a feeling that something is abnormal, I guess it is because different cameras I used had different FPS. Thank you! Glad to hear it.
  9. This is my entry for BuWizz Fast Car competition. Features: - RWD with differential - Front independent suspension with positive castor - Rear live-axle suspension with long trailing arms - RC/Buggy motor for propulsion - Servo-motor for steering - BuWizz 2.0 I wanted to make a fast and agile car that will provide some real "turbo" experience of driving. The appearance is much inspired by BJ Baldwin's trophy truck. I recorded video in the last days of March, when we still had a lot of snow and it was a bit of luck to find some clean place to make video. I am still learning how to make good videos and this was a nice experience. If you like my entry, you are welcome to vote:)
  10. Great to hear that you keep working on it! Since SBrick official app always crashes on my iPhone I would love to have a working app on AppStore. I will try it soon. I know many people who don't like SBrick official app since it's limited functionality (e.g. can't use one channel on two gamepad buttons), so I will tell them to ask you make app public on AppStore:) I have two suggestions: 1) First one is to make an option to choose SBrick. It is critical, for example, on a meeting or a competition, where are many peoples with SBricks and there is no option to connect only to yours SBrick. 2) Second one is to make support for two and more SBricks. That would be awesome. I am really willing to pay for an stable app with highly customizable gamepad control profile that allows to control two SBricks. Thank you for your work!

    I do think that there will new hubs. Something like this, but narrower and, of course, it will be two monolith parts.
  12. BuWizz 2.0 would be accepted appropriately if it have been announced in a appropriate way. I have backed BuWizz on the Kickstarter, got it several month after it was promised and had no clue that after a while there will be second version so soon. I would like to have a ludicrous mode, I backed the product from the start to have it and now I feel abandoned and cheated in some way. And still no custom profiles, still no gamepad support and those have been kind of promised. Even BuWizz 1.0 has characteristics that are different from the official Tech Specs on the website (battery capacity, e.g.). Also, there is still no information on the mysterious white connector. I really understand all those difficulties when it comes to development of the final product, but still, I think this is an example of bad attitude, especially to the ones who backed the project on Kickstarter.

    LEGO Speed Computer (32467)

    I have a brand new set sealed in box, but right now I am in another city. Hopefully, I will make a review and scan instructions if there is any:)

    Cellular automaton machine

    That is amazing. I am still have to work out how this cellular automaton machine works, but I understand that cellular automatons are not the easiest things to build from LEGO pieces. Nice work!
  15. One ring to rule them all:) Great work of reverse engineering BuWizz protocols! Will there be downloadable version of .apk?
