Fun with the AnyWays

Last Thursday Laurens Valk came over to chat and play.  We thought it would be fun to try and do something with our AnyWays, Laurens had brought his with him.  We thought it would be fun to make one follow the other. We’d use the HT IR Ball as a “beacon” on one and the HT IR Seeker on the other. Our original plan to make the one with the ball remote controlled with the HT IR Receiver fell through when we discovered that the IR Receiver is completely blinded by the umpteen IR LEDs in the ball. We used the Dexter Industries dIMU to maintain the AnyWays’ balance.
