Hello! I want to present to you my entry for Ideas Moments In Space contest, Time to Charge! Lambda, the little robot needs to recharge after work! Help him! Plug the robot on the charging station, open his belly and the box contaning charging hoose and plug it into the robot to charge him! Set contains little, funny robot with moveable head, arms and legs, openable toolbox for Lambda tools and the charging station itself! I would appreciate your vote if you like this entry :) - https://ideas.lego.com/challenges/1b817aba-3990-4e6d-a17f-7a59a948d02f/application/00a14eb0-6288-4baf-8d5d-ce27816affe2
Brickthus posted a topic in LEGO Train TechMy first project on the LEGO Ideas site is an Inductive Charging System for Power Functions LiPo batteries for Trains, Technic and Mindstorms. The project concept enables a train LiPo battery to be charged without manual intervention. The train stops over the charging coil. The charging coil would sit between the rails, powered from the standard charger. The receiving coil would be held between the bogies of a wagon, plugged into the charging port of the LiPo battery. The device would be compatible with use for Technic, Mindstorms and other themes, so that a robot could return to a charging station and charge itself. It might be possible for the charging and receiving coils to be two of the same device, minimising cost. This would bring LEGO products up to date with the charging of mobile phones and tablets. It may be a key technology to enable more development of Power Functions trains because it would make it easier to run them at shows. Please add your support to the project. We have 90 supporters so far, which is good for a technological project (as opposed to a populist project). Let's see if we can reach over 100 supporters, perhaps 150 in April! Even if the LEGO Ideas route is not the best route, your support adds weight to the case for pursuing another route, such as third party production or crowd funding. Thanks, Mark
