Mindsensors GlideWheel-M

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.
