SuperRex

Some of the MCP have been working on a bot for a competition between North America and Europe... here's a sneak look at one attempt (but not the actual competitor - that's a secret!), courtesy of Bryan B. via the lego-robotics newsgroup.

Oh wow...

How many NXT's does that use, I can see about 8 motors, and there are probably more, is it a three NXT biped. Woah!

Jim Kelly said...

Yes, 8 motors will require 3 Bricks... you can almost see Alpha shaking :)

Maniac... said...

I see. I love the way that face mask was built, a little Bionicle-Esque(sp?), and this is coming from someone who does not like Bionicle, except for the Zamor launchers:-P

I don't see much in the way of sensors though, except for the US sensor in the head, I can't spot any other sensors (in positions where they would be terribly useful at least) does it use only rotations? Although, I think I spotted a HiTechnic color sensor on Alpha.

Wow, awesomeness.

I can spot four sensors other than the US sensor Maniac - two light sensors on the sides of the front NXT, and two other sensors in the backs of his shoulders.
