Blast3r Droid (mySENTIN3L)

This is Daniele Benedettelli’s SENTIN3L…in an extensively upgraded form! I programmed an entirely new program for Blast3rDroid (mySENTIN3L) that enables Remote-Control of the robot! This robot is about 22% quicker than the original! The RC program has two channel modes: Channel 1 for regular usage, and Channel 2 for upgraded usage modified for quicker speed and more accurate turning! The color scheme has been revamped, featuring a lot of bold coloring (most of the black has been replaced with red and white). I added more panels and wider panels for improved aesthetic appearance. The COLOR CUB3 has been revised and now has four colors: black, red, white, and yellow.  Continue reading

myEV3RSTORM

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.

EV3RSTORM

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!

Ali3nCompanionDroid

Meet my special companion humanoid, Ali3nCompanionDroid! He can wave his arm and say “Hi!”, roam around autonomously, react to your actions and more! He can even play a short, slow version of the “Imperial March” from Star Wars!

P3NGUIN 2.0

P3NGUIN 2.0 is an upgrade to P3NGUIN. Some detail worthy to note are the little fingers above the flippers. The walking mechanism is the same (check out the original P3NGUIN for more detailed information). The legs are longer and the flipper-feet are also longer for stability. I tried to make sure that I didn’t make them too long; it needs to look like a penguin, right? The major improvement to P3NGUIN is that now, P3NGUIN 2.0 can walk on carpet AND smooth surfaces such as glass! In able to walk on slick desk, I put grip on the rear of the legs. The grips are taken off when walking on carpet. First video demonstrates P3NGUIN walking on carpet, and second video shows P3NGUIN walking on my desk. Keep a sharp lookout for my SumoBot! Enjoy.

P3NGUIN

P3NGUIN is another entry for EV3Community’s WalkingBot Challenge. P3NGUIN is a biped robot; he walks on just two legs. P3NGUIN is a very fast biped; I am pretty sure that he is faster than the official NXT Alpha Rex (1.0 + 2.0). Watch the video for yourself and tell me what you think. So you may be thinking, “What’s up with the main picture?” Penguins live in cold weather areas, right? (Most of them, anyway.) So I had P3NGUIN on “snow”. Yep, the marshmallows are big “snowballs”. I had to work on this robot for a little bit longer than I usually spend (on this sort of project). This robot walks with only one EV3 Large Motor.

SPRINT3R

SPRINT3R is one of my entries to EV3Community’s Walkingbot Challenge. I named it SPRINT3R because it is fast. It features four legs (or paddles, if you prefer that). This sort of reminds me of a turtle because of the big top. I programed it to sprint full speed ahead when the touch sensor is pressed, and to stop when pressed again. I have to say that this is not the best of its kind; it was built today due to boredom. But I am adequately satisfied with SPRINT3R. The legs were inspired by RoboGator; the difference is that both front AND back legs propel SPRINT3R. It reminds me of paddles. 🙂 Watch the video to see SPRINT3R sprint across the floor. There is a free-spin wheel under SPRINT3R to ensure that the bottom doesn’t get caught on the surface it’s walking on or scratched up, also giving it a smooth ride. Look forward to my next robot, a walking penguin!

SAMURAI DANC3R 2.0

SAMURAI DANC3R has been updated extensively! SAMURAI DANC3R now dances at different speeds according to your actions! At normal, SAMURAI DANC3R starts out dancing at 33% speed (the top swords above his head act as sort of a balancing gyro spinning at 100% speed). Push your thumb on the EV3 Color Sensor, and SAMURAI DANC3R begins dancing lively at full speed! The duration only lasts 5 seconds, then it dances at a slow pace again. It dances better than it looks! Enjoy! P.S. Tell me what you think! Which dancebot is better: SAMURAI DANC3R or SAMURAI DANC3R II? Thanks!

SAMURAI DANC3R

 

SAMURAI DANC3R is my entry for DANCE BOT Building Challenge. As the name implies, he is a dancebot. He sort of looks like a samurai, which is why I named it so. He moves his arms back and forth in a reciprocating motion, and he has a spinning tri-blade swinging above his head. A breastplate is mounted on his chest. He has a gun on one arm and a sword on the other.  I used every sensor included with the EV3 set. THIS IS MADE WITH ONLY ONE 31313 EV3 SET.
