Now, I usually don’t post news on my blog; only robots, but this is one exception!

There are many builders who build remote-controlled models using the PF Infrared Receiver/Remote. And many of them know that there are many areas of improvement to be made. The SBrick (also known as SmartBrick) does just that! With the SBrick, you can control your models via Android, iOS, and WP8 devices. Here are some of the many technical aspects of this new marvel:

  • Same size as the LEGO IR Receiver
  • Customizable profiles
  • Up to 100m range
  • Programmable functions
  • Unlimited group play w/no interference
  • Four ports instead of two
  • Simultaneously control multiple SBricks
  • Speed controllable
  • And much more!

You can find unlimited information at sbrick.com. They also need our support to help make this become a reality! And they have only limited time. So it is time for you to act now! Help let this product become available to all LEGO builders by supporting them at Kickstarter. (Just visit their website and click Support us at KICKSTARTER at the top of their page!)

Quality is the whole concept of my new robot truck. S3miTruck was modeled after the US long-nose semi trucks, or if you prefer, “big-rig”. It features a color sensor that acts as a rear taillight/warning light, LED headlights, a linear-actuated extendable bumper, a switch, remote-control capabilities, RearWheelDrive, and so much more. It took about 9 hours to build and weighs ~3 lb. The Power Functions system (PF for short) has been incorporated into S3miTruck.

myEV3RSTORM was built as an attempt to reconcile many complaints launched at EV3RSTORM both on Mindstorms Community and the LMBs. I worked for hours on EV3RSTORM, changing this or that addressing the issues I’ve seen/heard. Many changes have been made to EV3RSTORM throughout. The color scheme is totally revamped to fit the more neutral colors many favor. And here is the result: myEV3RSTORM.

Disclaimer: This is an official model by LEGO®. I take no credit fro this project, but hope that this may help as a review of the model. Thank you for understanding! ->->-> EV3RSTORM is the leader of the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 set, and it is only appropriate for it to be a humanoid following the successful icon of the previous generation of NXT Alpha Rex. But EV3RSTORM is not your usual everyday humanoid; it does not walk like the NXT Alpha R3Xs but “skates”. Now I will explain the various sections of this unique humanoid!

Hello everyone! myWATCHGOOZ3 is an extensively upgraded WATCHGOOZ3 from the book: The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Laboratory. For all the basic core information of myWATCHGOOZ3, just check out my original WATCHGOOZ3 profile. I added a color sensor to the front of myWATCHGOOZ3, so it can now follow lines! I even have a video of it following a black line. I also changed the color scheme to obviousize (is that even a word? :P) the upgradedness (or that either?). The side wings are much larger (keeping the bracing too) and the beak remains the same except the stickers. The neck down feathers are now black instead of white. I added additional panels, as can be seen the tail feathers and the “NEED4SPEED” panel on side of the neck. Metallic tubing is connected between various points; it makes myWATCHGOOZ3 look like a mechanical type thing. I hope you enjoyed this project!

Disclaimer: This robot is not mine, but built from Daniele Benedettelli’s EV3 book. I hope this project helps as a review of the model. >>> WATCHGOOZ3 is a weight-shifting bipedal robotic bird. It uses one Large Motor and one Medium Motor to walk. It is autonomous, practically meaning that you can start the program, leave the room, and come back in an hour finding it still walking around perfectly fine (if the batteries even last that long). It can detect objects with the InfraRed Sensor and turn away to continue walking. The walking mechanism was well thought out; the structure is also well. It features creative bracing techniques. now I will explain throughly about WATCHGOOZ3 and its walking mechanism.

Hello guys, I am pleased to present a new project: Wrangl3r! Wrangl3r is intend to look like a Jeep, which I think does effectively. With a very unique drivetrain, Wrangl3r can drive at 2 MPH with a super strong stall torque of 80Ncm! You may be asking, “How?” By incorporating an adder mechanism!
