Grubbing for more NXT models...

Menno Gorter, another member of the MDP, has designed very novel NXT-based robot. Take a look at his new additions to his Brickshelf gallery. It clearly uses a lot of the double-bent liftarms, but it looks like a really interesting solution (and it looks very, well... grub-like!). Well done, Menno!

Looks great!

I wonder if it's really able to move.
Is there any movie available yet?

This is great Menno. Can you get any vidio footage of it up somewhere? Please? I am dying to see it in action.

Well, no reply from Menno via email. If someone talks to him, please let him know I'm requesting a CAD file of Grub for the MindStorms site. If he cannot render it I can do it for him if he provides a lot of photos.

Quite beautiful. Makes me glad I just recently ebayed a bunch of conveyor/treads. I dont know if I would have the patience to find that many of one piece. (reason why I'm organizing them I guess).
Truely well done - That one climbs right out of the perverbial "[BOX]"
How does it turn? I would imaginet hat some body flex is possible to arc into a turnning shape but alas I dont see a 2nd servo.
Also is it my imagination or did the US sensor become a bumper by hooking its boom onto a Touch sensor?
Can anyone ID the pieces being used to join the Double Bend tread pieces?
Again Grub is Food for Thought.
