Sariel posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingAs you probably know, torque effect happens e.g. when a helicopter spins its rotor, and is "spun back" by the rotor in turn, proportionally to the ratio of helicopter/rotor weight. I find this effect quite fascinating and I was wondering if it can be used to steer a true monowheel left and right effectively. It took some adjustments, but the answer is: yes, it can.
Plokman posted a topic in LEGO Sci-FiHey all, Just finished a design in LDD and rendered it with Bluerender and thought I'd show it off to you guys. Lets take a trip back to 1986 and visit a lovable little living robot. Thats right I'm talking about Johnny 5. It is quite funny over the years I've seen many MOCs based off Johnny even one that was published in a very old issue of the old Lego Mania Magazine (Back when the Lego Mainac was a kid in a green t-shirt and a pair of red shorts.) and always thought he would fit in as a Lego set. But one odd thing was in common with those MOCs. They were built out of Technic parts from lift arms to cams. They were never Minifig sized. That is Till now: The Nova Robotics Truck was a key piece in the movie and so were the characters like Ben Jahveri, Stephanie Speck, Newton Crosby, Johnny 5, Number 1 his brother, and Captain Skroeder. Ruh roh it's the bad guy For me the hardest part of this MOC was making the S.A.I.N.T robots like Johnny and Number 1 in scale for Minifigure but I think I managed it quite well. But remember Rule number 1 for Johnny. Never ever try to hurt his friends. Oops almost forgot to post the up close shots of the Human Figs too. XD If you couldn't tell I never really liked Captain Skroeder. He played his role as a villain very well and his disregaurd for those who knew better and for life was a major put off to me. The one thing I wanted to do for this was actually have a Nova Robotics logo on the trucks' side like in the movie. But I'm not much a programmer and could only get the Minifigure's decals on right. Well except for Captain Skroeder's hat it's missing the logo too. I was able to make a Mock-up of the design though. Even Legoified it. So what does everyone think? I really hope it fits the source material. I watch the movies quite a lot during my production. I submitted it to for voting on a project site. Hope that goes well and so far so good. Now I need to collect the parts to build Johnny for my collection IRL. Hmm gonna have to repaint a pair of white arms to the right grey.
