LEGO World Day 5–All Things Must Pass

Today was the last day for me at LEGO World, as it was for a number of the exhibitors at the Mindstorms booth.  I procured some Rotacaster wheels for the Kassler University guys (thanks Peter) and they wasted no time cloning the omniwheeled robot this morning.  It was a real collaborative effort with 2 of us building it and one ...

LEGO World Day 4–Batter up!

Saturday, day 4, was a really awesome day.  Peter McKinnon and Claus Seitz from Rotacaster drove up from Duesseldorf to come see me.  It was great to finally meet each other after almost a year and half of mailing and Skyping during the development process of their robotic omniwheels.  They were blown away by the sheer size of the venue ...

LEGO World Day 0–building the stand

I shot a small video of the LEGO Mindstorms stand being built and the weirdos that inhabit it.  I’ll try to make a video of each day. A small warning, this video contains some slightly NSFW language (one bad word).  I am pretty sure it won’t get you fired, though.  May also contain nuts. Read More »
