ISOGAWA Yoshihito, author of "The Orange Book" (OB)has a new PDF book coming out on October 1. Unlike the OB, this book has very little text (only 3 pages to be exact) but over 200 pages of mechanisms (a nice mix of small, medium, and large) built from LEGO and Technic parts, including NXT components and the new Power Functions motors. It's all in full-color and he's asking for those who download the book and find it useful to contribute $10.00.
I'm including some screenshots here of a few of the 211 pages. There are some amazing designs here and I'm having a hard time picking which ones to use as examples. The book does not require the reader to speak or read Japanese and all 211 demo pages are fairly easy to figure out and duplicate.
FLL teams are sure to find some great examples for inspiration. The sheer amount of work put into these mechanisms is amazing and I highly encourage those of you who do download and enjoy the book to contribute - this will allow Yoshihito to continue developing more books and reference material.
More details will be provided when the book becomes available for download and purchase.
