Laurens had built a very cool segway robot that could be remote controlled. I had built the new Wall Following robot from the HiTechnic website. It uses the HT EOPD and Lego Ultrasonic sensors to keep the same distance to the wall at all times. It’s a great little robot based on a really easy to build but versatile base, all designed by Gus Jansson. The thing I liked most about this model that during the 7 hours I had it running at the show, it never once strayed from the wall.
I took some pictures of the stands that a couple of the FLL teams had. Some were very colourful and elaborate, others were much simpler. It looked like most of the kids had a lot of fun, though.
Congratulations to all the winners. I can’t wait for next year’s competitions!
