New NXT Creation - check it out!
Jonathan sent me an email about his entry for the official NXT contest. Makes me think of Boba Fett or others with wrist-mounted devices.
Jonathan's comments: Meet my new assistant – the A27 Bionic Glove. Designed to give special capabilities, the Bionic Glove straps comfortably on the lower arm, armed with a sphere gun, extending hand with voice command, radar, and light.
The display has a menu on it with icons, which can be selected using the arrow and enter keys. When the right arrow key is pressed, the next icon is underlined. When the desired icon is underlined, the enter key can be pressed to bring up a submenu.
When the X2 Robotic Hand icon is selected, the display tells the user to input sound. When a sound command is given, the hand extends and grabs at a speed directly related to the volume of the sound command given. When a sound command is given again, the hand opens and retracts. The hand can also be moved left or right using the respective arrow keys. The enter key can be pressed to return to the main menu.
Using the light bulb icon, the I7 InfraLight can be turned on or off. Another feature is the T1 Theater. When this icon (the PC) is selected, a short animation about a snail getting past a mountain is shown.
At night, when visibility is low, the U5 Sonic Eye comes in handy. Selected by the “eye” icon, the Sonic Eye tells you to “watch out!” when you get to close too an object.
Finally, the last icon brings up instructions for the GX “Get Zamors” special game, which you can play using the Sphere Gun.
Whenever the special button (touch sensor) on the control panel is pressed, the Sphere Gun activates, rapidly shooting 12 spheres contained in a magazine. The magazine can easily be opened for quick reloading.
Very cool, Jonathan! Thanks for sending!
