The mailman brought me a cool new toy to play with this afternoon! It’s the Mindsensors GlideWheel-M! These are so cool, you can now use the Large XL Power Functions motor with the same degree of accuracy as an NXT motor. The GlideWheel-M is just a single unit thick and fits very nicely onto the motor. You can mount it in any orientation you like. It’s really easy to use; if you know how to use an NXT motor, you can use this.
I shot a little video so you can see how it works in real life. I can’t wait to try and build this into something a little more substantial than a hand held demo doodad.
The GlideWheel-M will cost $29.95 when it goes on sale.
