The MINDSTORMS Community Partners (MCP) are robot makers known for thinking outside the box, constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible to create with MINDSTORMS! This is why during summer of 2015 the LEGO MINDSTORMS team challenged the MCP, and asked for help to solve a creative problem… The challenge this time,  to imagine what type of creative combination models could be made using only parts from the LEGO MINDSTORMS (31313) set and the newly launched LEGO TECHNIC Fire plane (42040).
The ROBOT REMIX #1 is a mix between the Sea Plane (42040) and the EV3 (31313) sets.

The result is the ROBOTREMIX, a creative concept whose goal is to show the cool stuff possible remixing your LEGO MINDSTORMS set with only 1 other LEGO TECHNIC set. There were lots of great ideas from the MCP group, but 4 ideas where finally chosen to receive a set to get started exploring the combination. The final and awesome creations by Xander (Netherlands), Robin (China), Arthur (Brazil) and Yoshihito (Japan) are shown below!

A: Yoshihito Isogawa - HELICOPT3R
B: Arthur Sacek - DANC3R
C: Robin Day - LUCKY CAT
D: Xander Soldaat - VALKYRIE

So what was the feedback from the LEGO MINDSTORMS team? Both the LEGO MINDSTORMS and LEGO TECHNIC teams we’re really amazed by the creative ROBOTREMIX possibilities and can’t wait to see more ways to combine the sets chosen for this ROBOTREMIX, maybe you too have a ROBOTREMIX?

In the coming days, the 4 robot remixes will be shared and discussed on the LEGO MINDSTORMS Facebook Group  where we want to hear your opinions:  Which of the ROBOTREMIX models do you feel most inspired to build?
