For them all, I have translated the LEGO MINDSTORMS 8547 User Manual in Italian.
It's available from the official MINDSTORMS website from the Support->Building Instructions section, together with the manuals in other languages.

Great looking robot that will cut a cake into as many pieces as you want. A tin lid acts as the cutter, and some basic math is used to calculate the angle of each piece.
As others have commented, all it needs now is a way to blow out the candles :)

Many people asked me for more info about the gun on my battle tank model.
A video explaining it is coming soon, but for now I made an LDD. I can't upload it to blogger, but you can download it here.
The model isn't perfect (rubber bands are missing, the motor on top missing, gears arenot meshing properly, colours not matching the original,...), but it should be good enough if anyone wants to build it (big if.).

It is a small version of LEGO’s Mindstorms NXT, created by suzuki on Jun 10, 2011. The body and motor is a module, so you can customize it if you have those. It is good for people who actually own a real one and also people cannot afford it.
