MINDSTORMS Automated Roller Coaster

Gijs and his cousin just finished building this really impressive roller coaster, best part of it? It's controlled by MINDSTORMS EV3 :)

The roller coaster is EV3 powered, it uses a color sensor for sensing the arrival of a train and then initializes the Mindstorms program loop.

Visitors are being sent on a mission to an alien world. After they get launched into space they orbit a potentially interesting planet and initialize the landing. Once landed they find a dangerous world with enormous monsters. A giant sand worm eats them at the end of the ride.

If you have an amazing project powered by MINDSTORMS do let us know so we can feature you too on The NXT Step (is EV3)
