Do you love LEGOs? I daresay you don’t love LEGOs as much as this guy.
Thanks for the link, Joe!
It took four guys one year, more than 100,000 legos, about $30,000, and a love for robotic awesomess to create Monster Chess. Keep watching, because it gets more and more impressive as it goes.
This is definitely the coolest thing I’ve seen today.
Thanks for the link, Darren!
This is a brilliant application of augmented reality.
All of this was built and programmed using the Lego Mindstorms NXT Retail-kit. Awesome!
From Tilted Twister:
Tilted Twister solves Rubik’s cube fully automatically.
Just place the scrambled cube on Tilted Twister’s turntable. An ultrasonic sensor detects its presence and starts to read the colors of the cube faces using a light sensor. The robot turns and tilts the cube in order to read all the faces. It then calculates a solution and executes the moves by turning, tilting and twisting the cube.
Here’s a video:
This is my first foray into the San Diego Comic Con. I really didn’t know what to expect except for the size of the convention itself. Even having that in mind, I was still floored by the immensity of the attendance. People from all over the world, from all walks of life came here to share in their passion for the “contemporary creative arts.”
I was so overwhelmed by everything I didn’t take as many photos as I thought I would. Also, it got so packed I couldn’t even stop to take a photo. Most of these photos were taken “in passing” and as such, came out fairly blurry.
Oh well, I’ll know what to expect next year. :)
I took the time to annotate most of the photos, so enjoy!
I know a couple of guys who take LEGOs pretty seriously so this might be old news to them. You can download Lego Digital Designer, a freeware app available in both Windows and OS X, and design your next LEGO-tastic creation in a AutoCAD-like fashion.
Great find, AG.
