Tamago egg app, egg breaker

Sartphones are nice, but spending all your time with tapping a screen to break the egg, seems to call for a MINDSTORMS robot.

The hard part was sensing the LEGO fingers, smart phones have capacitive screens, those do not detect plastic fingers, so to do this a special foil was used. (the anti static bags that normally contain printed circuits)

The complete robot was build on the special Minutebot baseplate
The maximum speed in controlling the smart phone was 7.5 times per second.

again a nice project form NXT1engineer.
