Hockey is no longer just for humans.

Gus from HiTechnic sent me a link to a very cool hockey robot he’s built, based on the Trike-base.  I know it’s not a puck, but it’s the thought that counts!

He told me they were still in Alpha testing phase but that they’d get back to me when they were ready to ... Read More »


My current project, well, the one I seem to be spending the most time on is a robot called A-Maze-Ing. It is based on a Lego Mindstorms NXT brick. This robot is, or rather, will be, a line-maze solving robot. The first challenge in building this robot was its size. Rules dictate the robot should not exceed 15x15x15 cm at ... Read More »
