Extent of Mass Data Loss + POLL

Hey guys, I have an update on the data loss I experienced recently. I have lost all my youtube video file archives, several important frames for my upcoming stop-motion animation, all documents of my book I’ve been working on, all videos for a Technic set review, a lot of pictures, and countless more.

The bad news being said, I do have some good news (though not outweighing the bad). I am at a fork in the road considering my LEGO collection, and I really need your advice! Please participate in the poll below; it may affect my outcome!

 

The 45560 Lego® Mindstorms® Ev3 Expansion Set comes with 853 pieces (i.e. beams, pins, wheels and tires, gears and steering racks, panels, speciality parts).

As for the other option, for $96 I can get two IR Receivers (V1), two XL Motors, one PF IR Remote-Control, and one PF Servo Motor. The spare parts included are as follows: four 3 Snap Gearbloks (Element ID: 4610378 / Design ID: 92909), two Cardan Cups with Cross Axle 2M (Element ID: 4610374 / Design ID: 92906), two 16z Gears (Element ID: 4640536 / Design ID: 94925), and six Slide Shoe Round 2×2 (Element ID: 4278412 / Design ID: 54196).

MINDSTORMS® Book Cancelled/Delayed

TR3ADBOT

The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3LUTION is my upcoming EV3 book. Using only one 31313 LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Retail set, you will be able to build several robots and program them with this book…

Well, it was going to be my upcoming book. Unfortunately, someone tampered with my computer and all my files are lost. All my saved videos, edited pictures for my upcoming lego animation, and the book itself; all trace is lost. I’m currently searching into all my backup devices; hopefully it’ll be there. Updates later.

I’m sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, I’m really sorry.

SBrick – Completely Revolutionize Your Lego Mindstorms/Technic Building Experience!

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.
