This is my latest moc. Thought I'd try something different for a change. Features: -Skid Steering -Robotic Arm 3 Degrees of freedom -Pneumatic Claw -Pneumatic autovalve -3 NXT motors -2PF Large motors Enjoy the video.....
Lately I've been in the mood to make MOCs that haven't ever been done before, or improve upon unique ones. I haven't seen any descent penny sorters,so if any of you guys know of any please let me know. Copper Pennies are worth 230% of their face value just because of the metal contained in them. Some people hoard the pennies so that if they're ever taken out of circulation they could melt them down and sell the metal. I'm not one of these people, but I this would be a fun and challenging moc. There's two ways to sort copper pennies from the zinc ones without any special equipment: 1)Date: Copper pennies were made from 1909 to 1982. 2)Weight: Copper pennies weigh 3.11 grams, while zinc ones weigh just 2.5 grams. Naturally I used the weight to determine what kind of penny it is. There are two scales in the machine, each one being identical. When the penny is dispensed onto the scale if it is copper it will fall off, if it is zinc it will stay on top of the scale and will be pushed off by a fork into a different direction than the copper pennies. The entire thing is mechanical, all driven by a single NXT motor.
Here's my latest attempt at a race car: Bugatti Type 35. I built the body in more of a minimalistic design to reduce weight, and increase speed. The power is provided by two L motors, and the steering is controlled by a servo. https://lh6.googleus...E=w1233-h925-no The steering system is something I came up with. I don't think I've ever really seen this used before(please tell me if you've seen this anywhere else before),and it seems to work really well. In the video above you can see the steering in action. I'll post a video of it driving as soon as I can.
