We have been working on expanding our train automation system. The video below provides a glimpse of the (near) future. In this video we control everything from a tablet: switches, traffic lights, train head lights and the train itself... The layout automation system is connected to a PC that runs nControl, the tablet interfaces with the PC using a remote desktop app like TeamViewer. The train uses a prototype of our WiFi based train controller. The train communicates with nControl using nControl's internal MQTT server. The track switch motors and controllers are available; the traffic lights should become available the first weeks of April. The train controller is in development: the goal is to be able to control the direction, speed, head lights, check the battery power, and use a position sensor so nControl can track the position of the train on the layout. Let us know what you think!
Chilly_Productions posted a topic in LEGO Media and GamingA LEGO Nexo Knights app has recently been released on the app store and play store, I saw this opportunity to make a thread about the game. Feel free to talk about anything related to the app. Here's my question, are the Nexo Powers that you get for free in the game included in any official LEGO products?
Out of necessity, I designed and built this Lego Ipad stand using a total of only 18 Lego Technic parts. It is designed to collapse and be portable so it may be folded up to fit in my carrying case or even my pocket. This means it is small and light weight but is still functional to hold an Ipad 2 in either profile or landscape position. At my house, it is used everyday. Below I have produced a video of the stand doing its job: www.youtube.com/embed/mlvRpQcdFXs The key elements to the design are the Technic liftarms with fan (part 32177) and the Technic liftarm bent 1x9 (part 32271). These parts are also available in many different colors for a person to express their own tastes or compliment their own style. The design can be small and still functional (without adding weight to the base) by the simple mechanism of shifting the center of gravity (maybe not the right term) on the rearward legs in front of the connection (pivot point) where it attaches to the rest of the frame. The rear legs also sit slightly lower on plane than the front legs, making it lean slightly forward that aids in making it more stable and less prone for tipping.
